Are you a local high school football fan? Have you wondered why Bear River and Nevada Union don't play each other? Well this Saturday night (8/23) they will match up in a scrimmage at Bear River High School along with Mesa Verde.
This sets up an interesting conversation for the future. NU is currently playing the in ultra loaded Sierra Foothill league which could be the toughest league in the state. The SFL schools have student populations near 2,000. While Bear River plays in the Pioneer Valley League which has teams that have from 650 students to 1,700. The Bruins are one of the smaller teams in the league with about 800 students. The two largest schools in the PVL are Lincoln and Placer high schools which are in the 1,700 range. Both of which the Miners have on their 2014 schedule. While this is only a scrimmage Nevada County bragging rights may be on the line.
The Freshman and JV teams will be on the field for about 40 min. commencing at 6pm. The Frosh teams will be on one end of the field while the JV teams will be at the other end.
The three varsity teams will go at it at 7pm utilizing the entire field.
$2 for students and $4 for adults.
