The Lady Miners’ playoff hopes took a hit Thursday as they fell to Granite Bay by two.
In the game, the Lady Miners were unable to penetrate the Granite Bay defense and could only muster three goals. Scoring for NU were Robyn Fernandez, Nicole Blaney and Kim Ellis.
Nevada Union now needs to win its final two games and get some help along the way. The Lady Miners face Rocklin and Del Oro next week and need Bear River to beat Granite Bay for them to have a shot, said NU head coach Craig Zetterberg.
