Trojans boys soccer fall to top-ranked Sunrise Mountain

It took Sunrise Mountain just three minutes to score their first goal, and within four minutes into the game they had their second.

The Trojans boys soccer team played their hearts out on Monday but to no avail, as they lost to the Miners 11-1.

“Sunrise Mountain is the best team in the Sunset League and they are better than Western this year,” Trojans coach Wes Icard said.

The Miners (10-0 overall, 6-0 Sunset League) scored 6 goals in the first half and 5 in the second. The only goal for the Trojans came in the first half by Paul Holmes, who scored from 25 yards out.

Sunrise Mountain had great speed and precision passing, which kept the Trojans (3-9, 1-5) off balance the entire game.

“They are beating us to the ball,” a Trojans assistant coach said at halftime.

Pahrump had no answer to their speed.

The Trojans host a non-conference game on Friday against Durango (14-2-1, 7-1 Southwest League) at 3 p.m. and then travel to Mojave (6-8-1, 2-3-1) on Monday at 3 p.m.
