Placeholder Image

Eddie Aguilar had two goals and Armando Chavez two assists to lead host Sierra to a 2-1 win over Lathrop on Wednesday in Valley Oak League soccer action at Daniel Teicheira Memorial Stadium.

The two teams were tied 1-1 at halftime with the Timberwolves (6-1-2 VOL, 12-6-2) getting a second-half goal for the difference.

 David Soldwisch had four saves for Sierra.

 The Spartans fall to 0-8, 0-14. 


East Union 3,

Central Catholic 2

 With five minutes remaining in the game Alex Sanchez took a flip pass from Gerardo Romero and crossed it into the net for the Lancers to break a 2-2 tie.

East Union (5-2-1, 7-2-1) took a 2-0 first half lead with goals from Alex Velasquez and Tomas Suarez. The Raiders (2-6, 3-6) answered back with two goals in the second half before Sanchez’s goal. 

“We pretty much dominated most of the game,” Lancers coach Victor Polanco said. “But you can dominate for 70 minutes and let up for 10 and then give up some goals. 

“That can be scary.” 


Oakdale 4, Manteca 1

Aron Navarrette got the Buffaloes (2-6-1, 5-9-1) on the board just before halftime with an unassisted goal to come within 2-1, but the Mustangs (6-0-2, 13-2-4) added two more second-half goals to pull away.

 “We had opportunities in the second half,” Manteca coach Justin Coenenberg said. “Their goalie just got hand on a one-on-one could have tied it at 2-2,”

 Oakdale had 25 shots to eight for the Buffaloes. Manteca goalie Matsua Garcia-Mendez had 17 saves.



Weston Ranch 9, Kimball 0

 Ariel Silva had three goals for the Cougars and Gio Rodriguez had two. 

 Andy Cadis, Mario Martinez, Jesus Espinosa and Issac Espeiono added one goal each for Weston Ranch.
