Wildcat boys blast Kimball; Girls fall to Jags

Maggie Beck / The Union Democrat Spencer Lyons shoots on Tuesday against Kimball at Sonora Sports and Fitness.
The Sonora Wildcats boys water polo team got off to a quick start and never looked back.

Sonora grabbed a four-goal advantage after the opening quarter and coasted to a 14-8 win over Kimball on Tuesday in a Valley Oak League match at Sonora Sports and Fitness.

“We went up 6-2 at the end of the first quarter,” said Wildcats head coach Matt Personius. “We substituted freely from the second quarter on. Everybody played. The game was never in question for us. Our strength players are stronger than their players. We we’re better all-around. I was happy with the game, and it showed us some things that we need to keep working on defensively. It was a good start for us.”

Volley Wildcats sweep Linden

Shannon Friend hammered 13 kills on 29 of 31 hitting and Bella Bergamaschi served 22 for 23 with two aces to lead the Sonora Wildcat volleyball team over Linden 3-0 (25-10, 25-17, 25-14) in a Mother Lode League clash on Tuesday at Bud Castle Gym.

Bergamaschi also added 14 assists and made 11 digs and freshman Riley Patterson added 10 kills for Sonora which has won four straight to open the MLL.

“We have never seen Linden play before but we knew they were going to be competitive coming into the match 7-1,” said Wildcat head coach Kim Evans. “They hung with us for about the first nine points until we started to figure some things out. We had some good service runs and that helped us get a lead in each set. Linden played some very good defense which turned into some really good rallies. All of our girls played well tonight.”

Anderson nets 5 in Bears romp over Buffs

It was a career night for Braden Anderson.

Behind Anderson’s five goals, the Summerville Bears boys soccer team demolished Amador 8-0 on Tuesday in Sutter Creek.

“He had another one of those enthusiastic games,” said Summerville head coach Dave Reel of Anderson. “He was just on fire. He said he felt good tonight. I think that shows well for him. His play showed just consistent soccer. His runs were awesome.”

Liggett’s 2 second-half goals lead Wildcats over Lions

Scott Liggett scored two second-half goals and the Sonora defense clamped down after allowing an early score on Tuesday night to lead the Wildcat soccer team over the Linden Lions 2-1 at Dunlavy Field.

Linden scored in the first two minutes, but were held scoreless for the rest of the night.

“Our defense played really well,” said Wildcat head coach Lloyd Longeway. “Eric Gilliatt had a big game and Ross Irwin, John Skeely and Missael Vazquez, they were really strong the whole game.”

Wildcats steamroll Mustangs in MLL opener

Argo - did - naut. Argo - could - naut. And in the end, Sonora made any effort from Argo - all for - naut.

The Argonaut offense did not gain many yards or score any points Friday night against Sonora, and its defense could not stop the Wildcats from racking up both.

The Wildcats dominated from start to finish their first game in the Mother Lode League thumping the Mustangs 49-0 at Dunlavy Field.

“We played really tough tonight,” said Wildcat center Matt Konklin. “It was definitely good to start off league with a win like this. It sends a message to the rest of the schools. But everybody, everybody played great tonight. We came out pumped, fired up, firing off the ball. It was so much fun on the sideline, everybody cheering on everybody and seeing everybody get to play.”

“We came out and showed them what we had and started off the Mother Lode League season really strong,” said Wildcat slotback Jayden Estrada. “And we showed everybody else we’re coming and we’re ready to go.”

Big Game streak alive: Hamilton, Redskins run past Bullfrogs


For The Union Democrat

For the first time this season, the Calaveras Redskins played like a team who is the defending Mother Lode League champion.  

Led by Connor Hamilton’s 230 rushing yards and four scores, the Redskins defeated their cross-county rivals Bret Harte 42-7 Friday night at Dorroh Field.  

With the victory, Calaveras extends its winning-streak in The Big Game to 15 years.

“It feels good knowing that we were able to keep the streak alive, but if feels even better to finally get that first win,” senior TJ Crenshaw said.


Summerville again plays down to the wire, falls at Amador

SUTTER CREEK — For the fourth consecutive week, the Summerville Bears football game was decided in the final minute.

Facing a fourth-and-23 with 36 seconds left in regulation at the Amador 27, Bears quarterback Bryce Farrell looked off a safety to his left before heaving a deep throw to receiver JT McCready down the right sideline.

But the prayer fell incomplete in the end zone and Summerville lost 21-14 to Amador on Friday in both teams’ Mother Lode League opener.

“We didn’t execute well all night on offense,” Summerville head coach Ben Watson said. “We were very hit and miss. Very inconsistent. I have to give Amador credit. They played us tough, but it wasn’t like we didn’t have guys in the right spots. We just didn’t play well. We got outplayed, and that’s frustrating when you come into a place (like this) and you’re outplayed.”
