According to last year’s roster, there were nine seniors on the Beatty High School football team during the 2018 season, a bit more than one-third of the roster.
To figure out what the Pahrump Valley High School cross country team is facing this year, look at last year’s Sunset League meet results.
Brett Comiskey might have traveled thousands of miles to compete in Best in the Desert’s Vegas to Reno race, but he felt right at home in Southern Nevada.
The cross country team was in action at home against the Mojave Rattlers. The boys lost to Mojave 16-41 and the girls beat Mojave 38-21.
On a cold, wet and gloomy day, the Trojans men’s soccer team played the Adelson Lions on a slick and miserable field. The weather was on and off rain, but it was enough to soak the field and the jerseys of the players. The Trojans swam to a 3-1 victory over the Lions.
The Trojans womens golf team was at Palm Valley in Summerlin for their last league match of the season on Tuesday. The team was consistent and finished third, a position they have held all season. Courtney Berry was the low score for the team carding a 105. Natalie King and Jayde Woodworth both carded a 115.
The Lady Muckers added their third win last Friday in three matches against the Lund Mustangs girls volleyball team in league play (25-14, 25-22, 25-16).
Beatty Hornets volleyball will face its toughest test since playing Pahranagat Valley earlier in the year, when they go up against the Tonopah Muckers at 3 p.m. Friday in a home game.
The Muckers gave it their all on the field to achieve last Friday’s victory against the Spring Mountain Eagles 46-40 (0-12, 12-18, 24-34 and 46-40), in a heroic comeback, with Connor Friel’s touchdown at three minutes left in the game.
The Trojans battled the Faith Lutheran Crusaders to a disappointing 0-0 tie. It was disappointing not because the Lady Trojans did not perform, they were outstanding. The outcome of the game was just frustrating.
The Trojans led the Cheyenne Desert Shields on Friday at the half 36 to 24. The Shields tied the game in the third quarter and neither team was able to seal the deal in the fourth.
Time was running out for the Hornets and the score was 28-28 in the last minutes of the fourth quarter. Beatty had the ball about midfield and with just four minutes remaining to score.
To truly understand the Trojans men’s soccer team, one must look at their last four games. The Trojans had to do something about their defense. It was bleeding points. The team had given up 12 in the two games prior to the Western game on Thursday. They dropped two games in a row to Mojave and Clark. Trojans Coach Don Boulden said after the Clark game the defense was going to have to change and they had one day to do it.
Senior Matt Misener is a running back for the Tonopah Muckers. Misener’s running game has been responsible for breaking a few games wide open. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall and 165 pounds, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds. He is quick and lethal, but most importantly he has heart.
The Tonopah Muckers football team won Friday’s away conference game against Round Mountain by a score of 58-26. With this win, Tonopah improves to 3-2 overall and 2-0 in league. The offense is averaging 345.6 yards rushing per game, 117 yards passing per game and has a total of 26 TDs.
