Big win for Colfax High soccer

-A +A
Colfax JVs take it on the chin, 27-14 The Colfax Falcons JV football team started slowly and never got on track in suffering its first defeat of the season, 27-14, at Union Mine last Friday night. “We just didn’t play well,” said Colfax coach Justin Heimann about the setback. “We had some new players filling in at new positions but that’s not an excuse. We just never got going.” Colfax gave up a touchdown on the opening drive of the game as Union Mine used a ball-control rushing attack to do most of its damage. After giving up the opening score, Colfax’s Sam La Haie returned the Diamondbacks ensuing kickoff 70 yards for a score. Logan Hurst’s extra-point boot then gave Colfax a 7-6 advantage. But following La Haie’s big play, Union Mine scored on two more first-half possessions to take a 20-7 lead into halftime. La Haie also scored Colfax’s second touchdown late in the second half on a one-yard run. Cameron Howes added a pass interception for the Falcons. Colfax will tryto regroup this week when it hosts Woodland Friday at 5:15 p.m. Frosh fall, 26-2 Playing without their starting quarterback due to injury, the Colfax Falcons couldn’t get on track offensively on the road and dropped a 26-2 decision to River Valley last Thursday in Yuba City. Colfax quarterback Matt Harshman was sidelined for the Falcons after suffering a concussion in Colfax’s win last week over El Camino. He is expected to be back in the lineup for today’s game at home versus Woodland.
