Colfax goalkeeper Lukas Christenson suffered a concussion Tuesday at Nevada Union while attempting to make a save.

Falcons boys soccer coach Jim Logan said Christenson, who was kicked in the head, will probably miss a week.

Backup goalkeeper Jeff Mulkin came in to relieve Christenson and helped the Falcons earn a 2-2 tie against Nevada Union.

Colfax (5-0-2) used two second-half goals by Cameron Ford and Ben Rooker to overcome an early two-goal deficit.

Logan said Avery Vrooman, Josh Partin and Taylor Dorsey all played well on defense for the Falcons, who open Pioneer Valley League play on Monday at 3:30 p.m. when they host Lincoln.
