Sparks settles for draw despite Hurtado hat trick
Angie Hurtado recorded a hat trick, but it wasn’t enough for Sparks to pull out a win on Monday at home against Fernley.
It was good enough, however, for the Railroaders to salvage a 5-5 draw. It was their third straight tie.
The Railroaders (4-4-3, 2-2-2) managed to earn a point despite playing two girls down due to injuries and academic eligibility issues.
Sparks goes to Incline on Friday.
