Cat soccer trounces Weston Ranch, 4-1

The Union Democrat Sports Department /

The Sonora Wildcat soccer team trounced Weston Ranch 4-1 on Wednesday at Dunlavy Field.

"We started using a new formation which led to a lot of offense for us," said Wildcat head coach Lloyd Longeway. "It created a lot of chances, something we weren't doing earlier this year. We're gaining a lot of confidence."

Sonora fell behind 1-0 after the first five minutes but answered with three first-half goals.

Joe Cahill scored the Wildcats' first goal off an assist from Andrew Klatt.

Barrett McLaughlin scored the Wildcats' second goal and Cameron Armas drew a penalty kick which he converted for a 3-1 lead.

Matt Howard scored the Wildcats' final goal off a corner kick from McLaughlin.

"Cayden McLaughlin did a great job in goal for us tonight and our

defense led by Shane Hopper was stellar," said Longeway. "Barrett is

having a great season for us and he brought a lot of energy tonight

that we really needed. And our freshman, Scott Liggett, has been

playing a lot of minutes and doing well. He's got a bright future ahead

of him."

The Wildcats (4-3-1 Valley Oak League) next will play at Lathrop on Monday.
