The Sonora Wildcats soccer team edged the Summerville Bears 2-0 Thursday in the cross-county rivalry match in Tuolumne.

With 12 minutes left in regulation, Casey Storm blasted a shot that sailed past the Bears goalkeeper to put the Wildcats up, 1-0.

“He sent a rocket,” Sonora coach Lloyd Longeway said. “That was the biggest difference in the game. Who was going to strike first? A rocket shot. Just a blast.
