Once every season Truckee’s Surprise Stadium is lighted up for a night game, allowing players the opportunity to show off under Friday night lights and giving fans a chance to experience a home game with a more traditional high school football atmosphere.
The stadium isn’t equipped with its own lighting, but by game time at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15, portable lights will be in place as Truckee looks to rebound from last week’s loss to Churchill County with a contest against Lowry.
The Wolverines (2-1, 1-1 Northern League) are coming off last week’s 42-22 defeat to the Greenwave (2-1, 1-1 Northern League), and will be looking to bounce back against a struggling Buckaroos (0-2, 0-1 Northern League) team.
Lowry has had a difficult to start the year, losing to Class 2A Battle Mountain, 34-14, in the season opener.
Since then, the Buckaroos have faced stiff competition, coming off losses to two of Class 3A Northern League leading teams in Fernley (2-0, 2-0 Northern League), 44-0, and Spring Creek (2-1, 2-0 Northern League), 35-7. Elko (2-0, 2-0 Northern League) is the division’s other undefeated squad.
Offensively, the Buckaroos prefer to keep the ball on the ground, and have struggled to find success throughout the season when the team has gone to the air with only one touchdown pass to show through three games.
