The Nelson boys varsity squad suffered its first loss last week to Dan River, 2-1. Jonas Zawhorodny scored the lone goal for Nelson which now has a 7-1-1 record. "Tough physical game with Nelson retaining 80% of the ball possession and majority of all shots and corners. We just couldn’t get our shots into the back of the net," said Nelson coach Eddie Torres." Dan River had a few breakaways and took advantage of those and scored the two winning goals. "[We] will use it moving forward as a learning experience for end of season and regionals. We are still fighting for first place at Friday’s away game at Appomattox."
