Varsity Soccer Boys Notch Two Ties In TVL Play

They scored just two goals in their two games this week but only allowed two, ending both games in a 1-1 draw.

Escalon college footballers tied Riverbank and Hilmar in Trans-Valley League action.

They traveled to Riverbank on Tuesday night January 24 and Luis Flores put them on the board in the first half.

“Riverbank equalized with 10 minutes left in the game,” Escalon head coach Paul Silva said. “A game well played by both teams; our intensity and concentration were good throughout the match. We just couldn’t capitalize on the scoring chances we had.

On Thursday, the College Cougars had to come from behind to forge a tie with the visiting Yellowjackets.

“We fell behind after two minutes and stayed that way throughout the first half,” Silva said. “Jesse Gomez scored early in the second half, assisted by Andy Alpizar.”

But that was all the score the Cougars could muster, although they had more chances as the second half unfolded.

“We were very wasted in front of goal and we couldn’t get a second,” Silva admitted. “Not a good performance from us, we lacked intensity and composure throughout the game.”

The boys will regroup for this week, as they were due to play Hughson on January 31 and travel to play Ripon at Mary Grogan Park in Modesto on Thursday.

Junior Diversity

The JV Cougars suffered a loss and a draw this week in TVL play.

They fell on the road to Riverbank in a 2-1 final. Dominic Murillo scored Escalon’s only goal in the match.

“On Thursday at home against Hilmar, we drew 1-1 with a goal from Co Northcutt and an assist from Yair Valerio,” said head coach Polo Rodriguez.

It was a week for college ties, as the girls were in the same position as the boys. They hosted Riverbank on January 24 and the teams battled to a scoreless tie.

On Thursday they were on the road in Hilmar and finished this fight in a 3-3 draw with host Lady Yellowjackets.

“Cal Granis had two goals and an assist,” head coach Jeremy Titsworth said of the game on the road. “Jasmine Barron had a goal, Reagan Baker an assist and Hannah Wampler an assist.”

JV Girls

Taking the field for a game at Hilmar, the young Lady Cougars came away with the 2-0 victory.

Head coach Lindsay Plascencia said the first goal was from Adriana Romero, with the assist from Peyton Merrill.

“The second goal was scored by Destiny Reyes, in the last 10 minutes of the game, so that kind of secured him,” Plascencia said of his ability to focus on defense in the final minutes to protect lead 2-0.
