HILMAR — Sonora was in the middle of its 17-point come-from-behind 30-27 overtime gridiron victory over Hilmar on Friday when Wyatt Faughnan produced a punt return that, according to his head coach, represented everything the Wildcats have symbolized through the first three games.

HILMAR — Down 17-0 at halftime, Sonora could have packed up its football gear and do what so many opponents do against Trans Valley League powerhouse Hilmar, go home with a loss.

And, the Wildcats most definitely were beaten when they lost a fumble at the Yellowjacket 3 with 1:40 left.

But not this group.

Trini Mercado Jr. of Gamblers Getaway got his Winter League bowling season rolling in the right direction. A week before his birthday, Mercado Jr. bowled a perfect 300 in his first game on Aug. 22. It was Mercado Jr.’s first 300 in certified play. He said that it was not his first 300, but it wasn’t in certified play. Mercado Jr. has bowled all his life at either Sonora Bowl, Sonora Family Bowl or Black Oak Lanes and started in the junior program at the then-Sonora Bowl. The 300 was 89 pins over his average. Courtesy photo by Ruth Abreo
