The 17th ranked USU Eastern men’s soccer team team entered its first game of conference against Truckee Meadows on Thursday afternoon. After a long trip to Reno, the Eagles took the field in 100 degree weather and put on a very convincing performance.
Ramon Nunez crossed an early ball to Joseph Valle, who opened the scoring. The Eagles’ relentless pressure paid off when Thomas Kirkham won the ball in the attacking half and slotted Valle through.
Valle then played across to Ayden McMullin, who scored his first goal of the season. Valle ended up scoring two more times to complete his hat trick, scoring from a free kick and a cut back assist from Colby Lee
The nationally-ranked USU Eastern soccer team was determined to keep a clean sheet and did so as the game ended 4-0. The Eagles continue conference play on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 1:30 p.m. where they’ll take on 2nd ranked Salt Lake Community College at home.
