The Sierra soccer team improved to 3-2-1 following a 5-3 non-league victory over visiting Downey at Daniel Teicheira Stadium Thursday.

Sierra’s Jesus Coronado put the Timberwolves up 1-0 on an assist via Juan Acosta, who then put his squad up 2-0 after converting a penalty kick. Caleb Ngui scored Sierra’s third goal of the first half.

In the second half, Downey made it a 3-2 contest off of a penalty kick.

Bryan Ramos tacked on Sierra’s last two goals to make up the final.

Alejandro Ramos finished with two assists and Julian Semenza had a clutch save on a free kick during his time in the net in the second half.

Sierra will visit Enochs in Modesto on Monday at 3:30 p.m.

Linden 3, Ripon 1

Manny Sanchez scored Ripon’s lone goal in the 65th minute, which closed the Indians (3-4) in 2-1 at that point.

Linden, which improved to 3-2-1, almost immediately stretched its lead back out to two about a minute after Sanchez’s goal.

“That was a momentum killer,” Ripon head coach Jamie DeBruyn said.

Ripon will compete at Ripon Christian’s Jerry Terpsma Classic on Saturday at 10 a.m. against Forest Lake Christian.

Ripon Christian 10, Modesto Christian 0

The Knights improved to 3-1-1 after defeating Modesto Christian on the road.

Jesse De Rousse, Kyle Colyn, Kyle Van Vuren, Andrew Manes, Rian Koetsier, Jake Van Vuren, Travis Vander Molen, Andy Shin, Tristan Vos and Cole Brouwer all scored for RC. Manes, Colyn, Nick Van Vliet and Max Koetsier each had assists.

Lukas Vermeulen finished with two saves for RC, who will play again Saturday at home during the Jerry Terpsma Classic.

McNair 2, East Union 0

East Union is still searching for its first win of the season after falling 2-0 against McNair of Stockton.

EU attempted just four shots on goal. The Lancers’ goalkeeper, Abel Lopez, tallied five saves. East Union will be at home on Tuesday to host Turlock Christian at 5:30 p.m. at Dino Cunial Stadium.
