NU boys soccer team earns tie with Ponderosa

The Nevada Union varsity boys soccer team fell short of a win Tuesday, but fought back from an early deficit to earn a 2-2 tie with Ponderosa.

Nate Rosenbloom had NU’s first goal and Blue Smith tied the game with his second goal of the season in the second half.

Despite outshooting Ponderosa 17-15, the Miners had to fight their way back to keep from losing.

In goal, Robbie Slaughter had eight saves, in what coach Mike Voss called a very good performance.

Adam Green put in an exceptional game both on offense and at midfield, according to Voss, and played a big role in evening up the score.

NU’s record now stands at 6-1-1.

Bruins lose lead, match

After going into halftime ahead 2-0, the Bear River varsity boys soccer team went to a prevent defense. The plan failed, though, as Marysville scored three unanswered second-half points to get a 3-2 win.

Jarret Russle scored the first Bruin goal off of a corner-kick assist from Kyle Corchero. Jason Zandona assisted the second goal, which was headed into the goal from six yards out by Anthony Logan.

Marysville picked up two free kicks in the second half, and capitalized on both, and then with 15 minutes remaining scored the game-winner.

“We outplayed them throughout the game,” said Bruin coach Dave Molina. “It’s part of our preseason and we’re learning.”

BR JV shuts out Marysville

The Bear River junior varsity boys soccer team shut out 5-0 Marysville Tuesday.

Matt Algire picked up the first goal assisted by Jared Hoyt, who followed with the second goal. Steven Aguilar had the third to go up 3-0, and Jared Dumont had the fourth with an assist from David Sai-Ngarm.

Dumont closed the game with a volley shot, the fifth and final goal of the afternoon.

Justin Schuler and Ryan Block had the shut-out performances as keepers, splitting the time and combining for nearly 10 saves.
