After battling Placer High to a 0-0 tie on Monday on its home field, the Colfax Falcons’ soccer team was set to play Wednesday night at Center in another key Pioneer Valley League soccer contest. With a 1-1-1 record after the first three-match juncture of their league season, the Falcons were looking for a win over the Cougars to stay in the upper half of the PVL race. “It’s a long season and we’re taking one match at a time,” said Colfax coach Jim Logan following the stalemate with the Hillmen. “I thought both teams played well. The defenses were excellent.” The Falcons will continue on the road Monday when they play at Bear River starting at 3:30 p.m. Colfax then begins the second round of PVL action next Wednesday when they play at Lincoln under the lights at 6:30 p.m. In the tie with Placer, Colfax held a 20-12 shot advantage over the Hillmen on the evening and turned up the pressure in the game’s final eight minutes. Leading Colfax was steady defensive play from Adam Allen, Josh Partin, Lukas Christenson and Taylor Dorsey. Colfax keeper Jeff Mulkin also came up with several fine saves. The Falcons also missed a golden opportunity with five minutes left in the fray when a Ben Rooker corner kick ended in a shot fired by Cameron Ford that was headed away at the post by Hernandez. Earlier last week, Ford scored five goals for the Falcons in a 7-0 win over Foothill. Christenson and Jacob Ritchey also scored for the Falcons in the win. Colfax JVs 5, Placer 3 – Alex Tobiasz and Scott Irons both scored second-half goals to leas the Falcons past the Hillmen.
