The Union Democrat Sports Department

The Sonora Wildcats soccer team suffered its first Valley Oak League loss of the season on Wednesday, 3-0, vs. Kimball at Dunlavy Field.

"I really like how Kimball plays, they are a really good team," said Wildcat head coach Denyse McLaughlin. "But my girls worked really hard and we're gonna keep gaining confidence game after game.

"Baylee Johnson, our sweeper, played fantastic. She saved a lot of plays with her speed and tenacity. Rachel Rosasco was solid on defense and Bailey Henington, Ruby Personius and Abby Runte were strong up front and had some scoring chances. Like I said, We're gonna keep getting better and better."

The Wildcats are now 2-1 in the VOL while Kimball moved up to 2-1. Manteca and East Union were 2-0 heading into Wednesday's games.

Sonora next will play at Manteca on Monday at 6:30 p.m.

Sophomore goalkeeper Jesse Stohlman recorded the shutout.

The Bullfrogs travel to Amador today. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

JV-The Bullfrogs lost 2-1.
