The Nevada Union Jr. Miners 8U football team shut out the Ponderosa Jr. Bruins, 12-0, Saturday in Shingle Springs to secure their first win of the young season.
Thanks to a stingy defensive effort led by edge rushers Brody Bringolf and Conrad Kohler, the Jr. Miners never allowed the Jr. Bruins offense to reach the red zone on the afternoon. Providing outstanding outside containment for the NU defense was Mason Kitt, Colin Fehrmann, Noah Burkhart and Ricardo Avina. The Jr. Miners defensive line also spent the contest filling the interior gaps and stifling the Ponderosa run game by way of low pad level and interior rush by Harvey Kahler, Elex Steinbech, D.J. Ramirez, Jamie Ramirez and Caleb Hutchison.
