The Wolf Pack boys soccer team beat a fast and persistent Tokay High team during Tri-City Athletic League action at West High on Thursday, Oct. 11.

West (9-0-2, 5-0-2 TCAL) grabbed a 3-1 win by scoring all its goals in the second half. Senior forward Miguel Madruga broke the stalemate with Tokay (2-4-1 TCAL) in the 54th minute on a penalty kick for a handball in the penalty box by a Tokay defender.

West scored two minutes later when senior Shawn Frisbie inbounded the ball with a flip throw, launching it to the front of the goal where senior Jose Murillo deflected the ball with his head for the goal. A flip throw is when a player generates more momentum for a throw-in by somersaulting over the ball.

Tokay scored on a free kick from just outside of the penalty box in the 59th minute by bending the ball over the wall of West defenders and into the goal.

West scored in the 66th minute when Frisbie again reached the goal with a flip throw where Alex Valencia knocked in the ball.

Sonora 3, Kimball 2

The Jaguars lost after holding a 2-1 halftime lead over Sonora on Thursday, Oct. 11, at Kimball High.

The Wildcats took over in the second half as they shut out the Jaguars (2-18-1, 0-9-1 Valley Oak League) and score two more to take the win.

Kimball scored on a shot from Josh Shuey, assisted by Ryan Chaney, and Keegan Coovert scored for the Jaguars on a penalty kick.
