Sierra finds its stride in sinking St. Marys

STOCKTON — What a difference a day makes.

The Timberwolves took as many shots Wednesday as they did in a 4-3 loss to Hilmar Tuesday, but this time around, 45 percent of Sierra’s 18 shots found net in a 7-1 road pounding of St. Mary’s.

Braian Gomez continued to produce on the offensive end, this time turning in a hat trick, while Oscar Garcia, Joel Boling, Irving Hernandez and David Reyes scored one each.

“It was a team effort today,” Sierra head coach Jose Montes said. “We shared the ball well, we had good communication, we played as a team and got a good result.”

Aaron Montes had a pair of assists, while Edwin Perez, Erick Noriega, Garcia and Johnny Waggy had one each.

“Hilmar had a playmaker (Tuesday), and we had trouble dealing with him,” Montes said. “We were able to adjust today. We had a little trouble in the first half, but we turned it on in the second and didn’t look back.”

Sierra led 2-1 at the break.

Montes said he was happy with Gomez’s production for the second straight outing, and says that when the senior shares the ball, he makes the entire team better.

The Timberwolves (3-4) take on Tracy today at home.

“That’s going to be another good test for us,” Montes said.
