The Truckee Wolverines football team suffered their first loss of the season on Friday night, falling 42-22 on the road to Churchill County.

The Greenwave offense scored four quick touchdowns in the first half to hold a 28-0 lead just before the end of the second quarter. Truckee Junior quarterback Marcus Bellon then connected with junior Marcus Trotter for a touchdown to make the score 28-7 with 8.2 seconds remaining in the first half.

After a big kickoff return to open the second half, Churchill County again found the end zone to extend their lead to 35-7.

The Wolverines answered with a touchdown midway through the third quarter, but the Greenwave responded with another score of their own, making the game 42-13.

Truckee would add another field goal and a touchdown before time expired, dropping the contest to Churchill County, 42-22. The win gives the Greenwave (2-1, 1-1 Northern League) four victories over the Wolverines in the two schools’ last five matchups.

Truckee (2-1, 1-1 Northern League) will look to get back on track next week when the team hosts Lowry (0-3, 0-2 Northern League) in a 7 p.m. matchup on Friday, Sept.15 at Surprise Stadium.
