vs. Hawthorne (Nev.), Sept. 11:
Through two games in the 2004 season, the Truckee junior varsity football team has outscored its opponents 116-13 to run its record to 2-0.
Freshman running back Kevin Sahlberg duplicated his three-touchdown performance in the season opener at Hug by finding the end zone on runs of 30, 15 and 25 versus visiting Hawthorne on Sept. 11.
Sophomore Sam Silver tied Sahlberg for the team lead in touchdowns by scoring four times, including a 45-yard TD reception from quarterback Tommy Nichols.
Sophomore Drew Stewart added his fourth score of the year with a 65-yard punt return.
Freshman Pablo Esquivel rounded out the scoring with a 4-yard run, but he also made a spectacular interception from his defensive back position. Middle linebacker Brian Cordell had another solid game, recovering a fumble.
Cole Hodges got the “De-cleat Award” from head coach Steve Ames for the biggest hit in the game.
“The freshmen have really been stepping in and filling spots,” Ames said. “I’m really happy with both sides of the football right now.”
On the injury front, Gil Cuevasmunguia is still out with knee tendonitis, Cruz Esquivel is recovering from a broken collarbone, and Andrew Mazzini will miss one to three weeks due to a concussion.
It may be a schedule change that dashes the Truckee girls hope of winning a Northern 3A league title in 2004.
On Sept. 10, in a match originally scheduled for the previous day at Incline’s Mountain Course, only three Wolverines girls showed for the rescheduled match at Eagle Valley Course in Carson City.
Needing at least five players, Truckee gained no team points, a crucial blow since the Wolverines came into the contest in second place trailing first-place Incline by two points.
On a positive note, Truckee’s Katie Fischer shot a 94, the fourth best individual mark on the day.
Other Truckee scores: Renee Cardinali 97, Katy Jones 113
