The Summerville High School boys' soccer team rebounded from a disappointing showing at the Yosemite Cup tournament with a 3-1 victory over Riverbank at Thorsted Field in Tuolumne on Tuesday.

Goals by David O'Neil and Scotty Morrison put gave the Bears (4-4) a 2-0 halftime lead. Morrison's score came off a 50-yard pass from Jez Bunow.

Morrison's second goal of the game came 11 minutes into the second half when Nick Anzar dribbled through three defenders and hit Morrison with an in-stride pass, and Morrison slid a shot past the Riverbank keeper for a 3-0 lead.

Riverbank scored its lone goal against Bears' goalie Woody Kumetat (11 saves) on a penalty kick midway through the second half.

The Bears' win not only wiped away the sour taste of their 0-3 performance at the Yosemite Cup in Sonora, but leaves them undefeated at home with a whopping 11-3 edge in scoring in the two games combined.

"We spent some serious time in practice going back to basics," Summerville coach Scott Traub said. "The whole defense played well, and the offense, midfielders and defenders played together as a team.

"We got six yellow cards (against Riverbank), but that's fine by me because it means we set the tone early," Traub added.

The Bears wrap up their preseason when they travel to Ripon Christian on Thursday for a 7:30 p.m. game.

Frosh-Soph The Bearcubs (2-2) evened their record with a 6-0 victory over Riverbank. Summerville keeper Manoah Low pitched the shutout while goals were scored by Johnny Kelleher (two), Bobby Laird, Aaron Epperly, Matt Koskela and Tom Ritz. Todd Birkestrand assisted on two goals.

Sonora frosh-sophs

The Wildkittens (4-4, 1-2) fell under .500 in the Valley Oak League with an 8-2 loss to Pitman of Turlock on Tuesday at Dunlavy Field. The Sonora varsity did not play because Pitman won't have a varsity until next year. Both the Wildcats (10-2-1, 2-0) and the Wildkittens (4-4, 1-2) will play at Manteca on Thursday.
