LOS BANOS — Going 4 for 4 in a baseball contest is a good game. Going 4 for 4 in a soccer game is a fantastic outing.
Ripon’s Devany Dougherty had a fantastic outing Thursday — in just 24 minutes.
In the Indians’ 5-0 non-league win over host Pacheco, Dougherty scored in the sixth, 13th, 22nd and 24th minute before she was switched to defense. Ariana Scholton added the other goal for Ripon (3-2) in the 61st minute.
Aubree Pelon tallied three assists for the Indians with Scholton and Haley Peterson each adding an assist. Ashley Pugh had two saves for her third shutout of the week.
East Union 2, Lincoln 0
The Lancers (3-1-1) handed the Trojans (4-1) their first loss of the season at Dino Cunial Field.
Jasmine Mejia had a foot in both East Union goals, scoring the first on an assist from Natasha Honore and the second unassisted in the second half. Malia Allen had six saves for the Lancers.
“It was a good game,” Lancers coach Carlos Gaspar said. “A tough game. We played better in the first half and had to pick up the momentum in the second half.”
Ripon Christian 0, Modesto 0
RIPON — Nicole Chapman tallied five saves for the host Knights (2-0-2).
“My girls played great against a big program like Modesto High,” Ripon Christian coach Kevin Tameling said. “They have some skilled players and we played really well.
“This is our third shutout of the week and we showed a lot of tenacity and persistence. I like where we are at. We have young players coming into their own.”
Tokay 6, Weston Ranch 2

STOCKTON — With their stadium unavailable due to renovations, the Cougars (3-3) battled the Tigers (3-1) to a 1-1 first-half tie on a temporary field behind the stadium before Tokay ran away with it in the second half.
“I knew it was going to be a good measuring stick for us,” Weston Ranch coach Francisco Cisneros said. We had a good first half but in the second half we couldn’t match their intensity.
“Today was a good learning experience. We just couldn’t put two halves together.”
Ariel Silva assisted Robert Gonzalez with the first-half Cougars goal and in the second half Izaac Cruz scored on an assist from Jesus Vargas to make the score 4-2.
