Prep football: Miners open playoffs on the road

Nevada Union on Friday will kick off the postseason when it faces off with Will C. Wood in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV playoffs.

The Sac-Joaquin Section’s high school football playoff brackets were released Sunday, and the Miners’ path through the postseason starts in Vacaville against the Will C. Wood Wildcats.

“We’ve been road warriors for what seems to be three years now, so let’s get on the road, go to Vacaville and win our first round of the playoffs,” said Nevada Union head coach Brad Sparks, whose team has played 12 of its last 17 games away from Hooper Stadium. “I like where we’re at (as a team), and I think we should all be healthy by game time this week, so it’s looking good for us.”
