Salvador Garcia and Brendan Sellberg each scored a goal for Nevada in the victory over Bondurant-Farrar. Devin See had one assist for the Cubs.

On defense, Nevada keeper A.J. Strottman made five saves and received plenty of support in keeping the Bluejays off the scoreboard.

Adei Attere, Emilio Tovar and Mason Welter each scored one goal for Iowa City Regina against the Cubs. Andrew Yowell, Nicolas Yowell and Nick Pechous each had an assist for the Regals.

IOWA FALLS — Nevada used strong defense to get past Iowa Falls-Alden, 1-0, May 5 at Iowa Falls.

The Cubs gave up 12 shots on goal, but still managed to keep the Cadets off the scoreboard to pick up their sixth victory of the season. A.J. Strottman made 12 saves at keeper for Nevada.

Brendan Sellberg scored the game’s only goal. He found the back of the net on an unassisted goal.

Sellberg ended up with three shots on goal, and Dennis Garcia and Devin See added two apiece. Salvador Garcia put up one shot on goal for Nevada.

ADEL — Nevada gave an Adel-Desoto-Minburn team rated No. 10 in Class 2A all it could handle before falling by a 3-2 score May 2 at Adel.

The Cubs only got off four shots on goal, but they made them count, pushing the Tigers to the limit.

Dennis Garcia and Bennett Thompson each scored an unassisted goal to account for Nevada’s scoring. A.J. Strottman made 12 saves at keeper to help keep the game close.

Garcia, Thompson, Emilio Saldana and Brendan Sellberg each ended up with one shot on goal for Nevada in the loss.
