NU drops league opener

Nevada Union’s boys soccer team fell victim to late run by host McClatchy (Sacramento) to drop a 4-2 decision in the team’s Metro Conference opener.

The score was tied 2-2 late into the second half when the Lions’ hit the back of the net twice in the span of nine minutes to pull away.

“We played well for 60 minutes. We just have to learn to play that way for 80 minutes,” NU head coach Mike Voss said. “I guess the thing that upsets me most is we didn’t play (to our potential).”

Adam Green and Nate Rosenbloom each scored for the Miners (7-2-1, overall, 0-1 Metro Conference).

Robbie Slaughter had five saves in the loss.

NU will host Kennedy (Sacramento) 3:45 p.m. Thursday.
