It was a tough day for the Mineral County High School football team on Saturday. The Serpents traveled to rival Virginia City and lost big to the Muckers, 88-28.

The Serpents were able to get on the board early by scoring 14 points in the first quarter, but couldn’t stop Virginia City’s offense. The Muckers scored at will early on and took a commanding 80-22 halftime lead.

Mineral County will look to put that game behind them when they face Smith Valley Friday night in Hawthorne at 7 p.m.
