Sierra's Juliana Rodriguez vies for the ball with Lathrop's Brianna Bedolla (2) and Isabel Paniagua (10).

Jocelin Roa and Alexus Rossi accounted for all the scoring Tuesday night for Sierra in a 6-0 win over visiting Lathrop in non-league soccer action at Daniel Teicheira Memorial Stadium.

Roa got her first goal in the ninth minute to make the score 2-0 and she notched a hat trick over the next eight minutes and then added an exclamation point in the final three minutes of the game for a total of four goals.

“We were passing and switching the field very well,” Roa said. “We would overlap and I would be there, ready for the ball.”

Rossi got the Timberwolves (8-3-1) on the board eight minutes in when she fielded a long cross from Hailey Cruz (two assists) and blasted it into the net for a 1-0 lead. After Roa’s hat trick, Rossi made it 5-0 when she fielded a rebound and got it in the net to make the score 5-0.

“One of the goals was a great cross from Hailey Cruz,” Rossi said. “And I was able to finish it off.

“The second was a rebound off of either their goalie or one of their defenders.”

This game wrapped up Sierra’s non-league campaign.

“This was it for 2021,” Timberwolves coach Manuel Pires said. “We’re done for the year and everyone will get a little break and recover for the first week of January. We will start off with Oakdale and then play East Union on that first Saturday here at home.

“We still have some work to do. Tonight I saw some of the things we have been working on to move the ball around and execute on our attacking third – it was very well done in the first half.”

Zoie Willson added an assist for Sierra and Samreen Bal posted 12 goalie saves for the Spartans (6-5-1).
