Preproundup: NU falls to Jesuit, Lady Falcons cruise past Foresthill

The Nevada Union boys soccer team’s stay in the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs was a short-lived one as it fell to top-seeded Jesuit 6-1 Tuesday on Jesuit’s home pitch.

The Marauders (24-0-3) scored four goals in the first 15 minutes to build a near-insurmountable lead.

The Miners’ defense stiffened and gave up just two goals the remainder of the contest.

NU got its lone goal when Nikolai Breiter was taken down, drawing a penalty kick, which Aaron Fry netted.

Forest Lake Christian 3, Foresthill 0

The Lady Falcons concluded their regular season in strong fashion Tuesday, a straight-set victory over Foresthill to give Forest Lake Christian a perfect record in Central Valley California League play this year.

It’s the first time since 2007 that the Lady Falcons (20-4, 12-0 CVCL) have gone undefeated in league play, said FLC head coach Travis Smith.

“It was our goal to win the league championship this year, and the girls surpassed that,” Smith said.

In the win over Foresthill, FLC got 13 kills, 15 digs and two blocks from senior captain Morgan Koch. Hailey Adams added seven kills in the victory, and Emily Pearce finished with four kills and seven assists.
