West put up a hard-fought match against the McNair Eagles to open the second half of the Tri-City Athletic League soccer season, but the Eagles claimed the 4-3 win at West High on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

The Eagles (10-1-3, 4-1-1 TCAL) were unable to score on the Wolf Pack (1-7-2, 1-4-1 TCAL) until the last four minutes of the first half, when McNair scored two goals within a minute of each other.

Perez and Romero-Silva teamed up again for a goal at the start of the second half, this time with Perez scoring to tie it up 2-2.

West senior goalie Arturo Velasco made eight saves in the second half, but the Eagles scored in the 57th minute and again in the 70th minute.

West made it a 4-3 game at the end when senior Javier Rios made a shot off of a free kick from Perez in the 76th minute.

Kimball 5, Sonora 0

Up until this week the Jaguars have been plagued by injuries, but on Monday, Oct. 14, the Kimball team (4-13, 2-7 Valley Oak League) had its full lineup intact, ready to head to Sonora and dominate the Wildcats 5-0.

Kimball coach Ron Hattley said a big addition to the team this week was senior fullback Satvaran Sidhu, back from an injury, who helped shut out Sonora, as did senior goalkeeper Wesley Power with 10 saves.

Kimball had a 2-0 lead at the half with goals from senior Brett Lassiter with assists from sophomore Noah Aini and junior Ryan Chaney. Chaney scored on an assist from Lassiter early in the second half. Kimball scored again when a free kick deflected off of a Sonora defender and into the goals, and Lassiter scored again on the free kick.
