    The week ended on Saturday with a Mustang win against West Wendover 25-17, 25-16, 25-16, securing a Lovelock’s playoff berth.
    Pershing County ended the regular season at 17-5 overall, and 9-7 in the 2A Northern League.

    Wednesday, November 6, 2019 1:00 AM
    The Pershing County soccer team surprised themselves on Monday, Oct. 28, senior night at PCHS. 
    They expected to enjoy their last game of the season, and they did. But they also wound up beating Fernley 1-0. 
    Along the way, the Mustangs said farewell to six seniors.
    Pershing County ended the year at 6-14-1 overall, and 4-9-1 in the 3A Northern 'B' division.
    Earlier in the season, Lovelock traveled to Fernley and lost 6-1, giving up three goals in the first 15 minutes.
    “We were trying a new lineup,” said Eva Matuszyk, the assistant coach. “I guess our old one would have worked out fine because we ended the season with a win.”
  • Pershing County football team dunks North Tahoe
    Wednesday, November 6, 2019 1:00 AM
    The Pershing County High School football team played its final home game of the season on Friday night.
    The Mustangs sent a chill down North Tahoe’s back, sending the Lakers back to Tahoe City on the short end of a 43-8 blowout.
    “It was nice to come out and get a big win at home,” said coach Mike Brooks. “The kids needed it, especially on senior night. It should give them confidence going forward.”
    North Tahoe has reason for pride. They’re a young team with players stepping into unfamiliar roles. Coach Brian Fink appears to have achieved his goal of creating a football family. 
  • Over-the-air television upgrades continue
    Tuesday, November 5, 2019 1:00 AM
    Low-cost, over-the-air television should be more reliable thanks to new electrical upgrades on Toulon Peak. Funded by a modest county property tax, 21 channels are now available to locals with a digital antenna who can’t afford or don’t want costly satellite or streaming video services.
    The TV District project has required many hours and long drives up a rough road for Pershing County Commission Chairman Larry Rackley. Calls from concerned viewers about weak or no television signals or the loss of a favorite channel could mean another visit to Toulon Peak.
    The TV District lineup includes Reno news, entertainment and public television channels. Also available are two K14KQ channels broadcast locally by the Pershing County School District.

  • Loss to Battle Mountain could 
sink Pershing’s shot at playoffs
    Thursday, October 31, 2019 1:00 AM
    In volleyball, as in life, it is always a mistake to underestimate your opponent. On Friday, Oct. 25, Pershing’s volleyball team traveled to Battle Mountain (3-9). The Longhorns stand eighth in the 2A Northern League but teamed up to beat the Mustangs (20-25, 22-25, 25-16, 25-17, 13-17).
    “We showed up to play in the third set and lost in the fifth,” said Coach Monica Halverson. “We came into this game overly confident and didn’t really play until Battle was two sets up. Losing to the Longhorns might have knocked us right out of the playoffs.”
    On Oct. 18, Pershing sank North Tahoe’s Lakers with a final score of 3-1. This gave the Mustangs some wiggle room as far as the playoffs.  If they beat Battle Mountain and West Wendover they could still get a good seed, the coach reminded the team.
    “Now our fate is in the hands of the other teams and the NIAA tie-breaker regulations,” she said.

    Pershing’s JV football team turned the tables on Battle Mountain JV this past Thursday. The Mustangs closed their 2019 season by beating the Longhorns 38-6. 
    On Oct. 11, Pershing lost a close game to Battle Mountain JV (36-31). On Thursday, just weeks later, the JV Mustangs pulled ahead by a mile. What happened?
    “We didn’t change anything that was in our game plan,” said Coach Jared Jensen. “The only thing we had to do was remind them what their job was and encourage those boys. They improved all year, and tonight they finally played to their capabilities.”
    Jensen coached alongside Dan and Logan Murphy, a father and son team. It was Logan Murphy’s first year coaching. He graduated from PCHS in 2017 with four years of football under his belt.

    Time flies, and so does the Pershing soccer team, now nearing the end of its regular season. On Friday, Oct. 25, they traveled to Battle Mountain and beat the Longhorns 3-0.
    The Mustangs now stand at 4-15-1, overall, and 2-10-1 in 3A Northern League B.
    The Longhorns only made it to Pershing’s side of the field for about five minutes, a testament to Pershing’s offense. At halftime, the score was tied at zero.

    Pierre-Edouard Bellemare was a little lost as a visitor to T-Mobile Arena.
    While the rest of his Colorado Avalanche teammates knew their way around the visitors' locker room, Bellemare was a newcomer, even after spending the last two seasons with Vegas.
    But, everything looked familiar once Bellemare got onto the ice.
    Nadem Kadri and Matt Calvert each scored twice, Bellemare had a goal and two assists against his former team and the Avalanche beat the Golden Knights 6-1 on Friday.
