If the Trojans boys soccer team needs a win at the end of the season to make the playoffs, then this past week may come back to haunt them. On Monday, the Adelson boys soccer team came to play a game. The Schedule said it was a league game, but the Trojans were confused and believed otherwise.
The Trojans take on the Mojave Rattlers in Las Vegas. This will be Pahrump’s true test of what kind of team they have. Mojave is coming off two solid wins.
