When the Boulder City Eagles got off the bus in Reno, before their game against the Lowry Buckaroos last Friday, they were confident. They had already beaten Lowry once this season and felt they were ready for the second win for a trip to the State finals. The Eagles hoped that their tough season schedule of fending off 4A schools would provide what was needed to get through the tournament with the title. Unfortunately, it didn’t work that well for them. Friday night Lowry beat Boulder City 60-45.
Rod, Bob, and Larry, are hooked on lures. And they are catching lots of fish.

Everyone has been looking for a break in the weather. Saturday February 18, was a perfect day for those who got out on the lake.
Unfortunately, I was landlocked. Walking pneumonia puts the kibosh on fishing. Thanks to Doctor Penick, Julianna will be out of the woods soon and I’ll be back out on the lake.
It wasn’t a game that Pirate fans will want to remember for very long. It is even questionable whether Virgin Valley fans will want to remember this one, except for the fact it was a win. A very ugly win.
