Soccer The Winters High School soccer teams traveled to Hamilton High School last Monday for a Sacramento Valley League match. Both teams returned home with another win under their belts. Girls varsity The girls varsity soccer team went into the game with a 19 league game streak of not being scored upon. The Warriors still have a run of 10 games won. They dominated the field against Hamilton with five goals in the first half, and an additional five goals in the second to secure the game. Elina Perez led the scoring charge with a hat trick, her second of the season. Boys varsity The boys took their victory with a score of 5-0. Grayson Roberts took the lead in goals with the two he made. The other three were an effort by the team of strikers, who were also instrumental in the assists. Wrestling The wrestling team travelled to Brentwood for the Brittany David Invitational. Valeria Ceja dropped down to compete in the 143 weight class and went 4-1, taking third in the weight class. A call from the referee did not give Ceja the pin she earned in the third round as time ran out, and her opponent won the semi-finals match by points. Ceja won the four matches leading up to the semi-finals round with pins. The boys had a more difficult time that stemmed from drawing opponents they would not normally compete against in a league duals match. Some of the schools competed were Division 3 or higher, such as Chico and Del Oro. Joe Southwood won his first round but fell in the next two. Ethan Demment lost his first, and only, round having to compete against a number one seed. Basketball Girls varsity The girls varsity basketball team tipped off a long week of basketball that included an away game and tournament at Vacaville Christian High School. On Monday Dec. 16, they played a non-conference game against VCHS and suffered a 23 – 38 loss. After a few days to recover, the squad returned to VCHS to play in their annual tournament. Their first opponent was a ferocious Tioga Timberwolves team that would hand the Warriors a 55-21 loss. The next day, the Warriors faced off against an old rival in Esparto. Gianna Carrion led the charge with 14 points, but the Spartans’ flood of offense couldn’t be contained as Esparto would leave with a 46-32 victory over the Warriors. Boys basketball The junior varsity and varsity boys basketball teams were road Warriors this week as they balled out at VCHS in a variety of games. Starting Monday Dec. 16, the junior varsity boys squared off against VCHS. While the bulk of the team’s offense are three’s, the ceiling of the VCHS gym proved to be the x-factor in the Warriors’ 43-21 loss. “We had 10 wide open three’s hit the ceiling and that was the difference in the game,” head coach Jon Davis shared. “They played zone and dare us to shoot three’s, then take the ball out of bounds after it hit the ceiling.” The Falcons also sent the varsity team home with a 50-44 loss, but would return that Thursday for the VCHS tournament. First on the bracket were the Buckingham Charter School Knights, which the Warriors anointed with a 42 – 35 loss. The next day, varsity cashed in on a grudge match against the tournament host by posting up a 48-21 victory over the Falcons with 14 coming from senior Ethan Berg. With a full head of steam going into the championship game, the Warriors faced off against a resilient Vacaville High Bulldogs junior varsity team to wrap up their tournament. Berg would stay hot with 13 points, and David Reyes would help with 15 of his own.However, it wasn’t enough as the Warriors lost 58-42. “I’m happy with how hard we are competing,” varsity head coach Jason Davis said on his team’s effort. “We’ve showed big improvement defensively this week.”]]>
