Lancers fall to Enochs, drop tourney
East Union’s Rachel Sianez makes her way up the field Saturday in the Lancers’ 3-2 win over Tokay
East Union looked impressive through the first portion of its EU Varsity-JV Tournament Saturday against Tokay, but after the Tigers fought back with two unanswered goals East Union was forced into action and the Lancers responded, pulling out a 3-2 win at Woodward Park.

A loss against Enochs in the early match forced East Union into a decline in the final standings of the round-robin style tournament. East Union found itself tied with the Tigers with less than 10 minutes to play in regulation when the group answered with a beautiful score.

Megan Wallace applied a perfect header on a ball crossed just inside the right post, sending it past the goalie and ushering the Lancers to victory. Their 3-0 loss to Enochs ended the team’s chances at the title, but the Lancers were able to get in quality work before the Valley Oak League opener this week.

“It was really fun,” East Union head coach Jim Todd said. “Like Enochs said, it was really relaxed and it was a good primer for the upcoming season.

“All of us involved thought it was fun.”

Encohs was able to bring home the tournament championship, combining for four wins and four shutouts between its two clubs. Enochs’ efforts earned them a nice $250 gift card for the In-N-Out food chain.

East Union will open the VOL schedule hosting the Lathrop Spartans Wednesday and will not be on the pitch again until the following week. The Lancers have their initial meeting with the Sierra Timberwolves highlighted on the calendar, with the two clubs meeting March 25.
