Falling short of reclaiming past glory, Boulder City High School’s flag football team fell to rival Virgin Valley 25-6 in the 3A state semifinals Feb. 20 at Del Sol High School.
“They were the better team that night,” head coach Kevin Ruth said.
Virgin Valley, which ended the season as state champions, defeated the Lady Eagles three times this season.
“It was a great year for us,” Ruth said. “We lost to the state champs in the first game by one point and the second game by a touchdown. We were right in the mix but came up a little short.”
Prepared for another season with the program, Ruth also expressed his excitement about next year.
“We have a lot of really athletic girls coming up so it’s pretty exciting. Our junior varsity and freshman teams only lost a combined four games so that’s a lot to look forward to as well.”
