Rivals Nevada Union and Colfax High met on a balmy Monday evening at Hooper Stadium for a non-league Boys Varsity Soccer matchup, with NU winning the match 5-1.

After a sluggish opening period, which looked just like the first game back after a holiday break, the Miners began to assert control over the game, pinning Colfax back into their own half. It was the Vikings that would strike first, however, smoothly slotting home a fast break against the run of play.
