Weston Ranch caught East Union’s attention early in their Valley Oak League girls soccer match on Friday, scoring the first goal just four minutes in.
It was all Lancers from there, as the visiting side rolled to a 9-1 victory behind Hailey Sims’ two goals and three assists and Tallon Cervantez’s hat trick.
Thania Valencia added two goals to the East Union attack. Jenna Campbell and Britney Barringon scored one apiece.
