Nevada Union boys soccer team shuts out Grant

The Nevada Union boys soccer team pitched a shutout Friday night against Grant, downing the Pacers 3-0.

NU upped its record to 2-3 in the Metro Conference, 10-4-1 overall with the win.

Evan Helman scored two of the team’s three goals while Adam Green and Connor Smith each recorded an assist.

Wes Clay scored the Miners’ other goal. He was taken down in the box and scored on the ensuing penalty kick.

“The defense played very well, but today our midfielders did the best job of shutting down the opponent,” NU coach Mike Voss said. “Our midfielders did a great job of keeping the ball and distributing it so we could maintain possession a majority of the time.

“The defense played well, but the midfielders kept us out of trouble.”

The Miners out-shot the Pacers 15-5. NU goalkeeper Robbie Slaughter recorded two saves.

The junior varsity Miners also downed Grant Friday, 3-1.

Senior middle blocker Kristie Donovan, freshman setter Kylie Miraldi and senior outside hitter Andi Lowe combined for 12 kills for the Falcons, each with four.
