The Truckee boys are rolling into their Division I-A showdown against rival Sparks.

The Wolverines are off to a 6-0 start in league play, outscoring their opponents 32-5 along the way, including a dominant 8-1 rout at Lowry on Saturday.

“The team is playing really well right now and we are really starting to get into a groove,” said Truckee coach Casey Eberhardt, whose squad improved to 8-2-2 overall. “The team trusts each other and it shows on the field.”

Sparks is off to an equally hot start. The Railroaders are 8-0 overall and 1-0 in league. Truckee and Sparks square off in the first of their two league meetings on Oct. 3 at Sparks.

Truckee senior co-captain Thomas Arnstein continued his torrid offensive start at Lowry, as he scored four times to push his scoring total to 12 goals in six league games.

David Martinez, another senior co-captain, scored two goals, while Jordan Fereira and Nick Oberriter scored a goal apiece.

Fereira, Oberriter, Arnstein, Martinez, Zach Williams, Steven Alexis Lopez and Aaron Hartman each contributed an assist.

“I’m excited to see us grow as a team as each game goes on,” Eberhardt said. “We still have a lot to work on, but we are getting closer. I think we will peak at just the right time.”

The Truckee boys were scheduled to play a league game at Fernley on Tuesday, but it was canceled due to unhealthy air quality caused by the King Fire.

Truckee’s girls, meanwhile, had their home contest against Lowry canceled due to the air quality on Saturday. The Truckee girls, at 3-0-2 in league and 5-2-2 overall, are in second place in the league standings behind South Tahoe (5-0-1, 7-1-1).

The Truckee boys and girls are scheduled to play nonleague games at Incline on Oct. 1.
