JACKSON Sonora High School came from behind yesterday to post its first boys' soccer victory of the season, 3-2 over Argonaut.

After falling behind 2-0 when Argonaut scored on a breakaway in the third minute and a penalty kick in the ninth, the Wildcats made a determined comeback and answered with goals by Nash Lundquist in the 11th minute, Corey Rodgers in the 25th (for a 2-2 halftime tie) and Markus Walsh in the 74th.

Lundquist scored off a pass up the left wing from Rodgers, Rodgers tallied on a long center shot that deflected past a screened Argonaut goalkeeper, and Walsh got the game-winner by breaking through unassisted and rolling a shot inside the right post.

Martin Gonzales and Eli Wolverton kept the pressure on at midfield and the lead stood up for goalie Brennan Pendley, who made 10 saves.

"This was our most effective game defensively, and the first time so far this season that our shot total got into double digits (17)," Sonora coach Rick Mogg said. "This was our tightest team effort thus far."

The Wildcats (1-7) host their annual Yosemite Cup tournament Friday and Saturday.
