The Railroaders saw their three-game winning streak come to a close with a 5-2 loss to Fallon on their home turf Wednesday afternoon.
“I thought we played really, really flat,” Sparks coach Art Hurtado said. “It wasn’t the tempo we normally play.”
Sophomore Angie Hurtado put Sparks on the board with two goals in the second half in the 54th and 64th minute but the Railroaders were unable to complete the comeback.
“Everyone was playing bad, we could’ve had a better game,” Hurtado, the daughter of coach Art Hurtado said. “It’s just not our day.”
Fallon’s Macy Myers scored in the 25th minute and Rebecca Mill scored minutes later securing Fallon a 2-0 lead at the half.
In the second half, Mill scored Fallon’s third goal in the 51st minute, to stretch the lead to 3-0, and the Greenwave’s last goal in the. Myers scored the fourth goal at the 60th minute.
“(We have to) slow down the ball to our pace. We’re forcing passes and holding onto the ball, a little too long,” coach Hurtado said. “(We have to) improve on how we played against Elko and Spring Creek, which was a totally different game compared to this one.”
The Railroaders (3-2-2, 3-2-0) travel to South Tahoe on Saturday at noon.
