Hilmar soccer loses in first round
Placeholder Image

The Hilmar High boys soccer team fell to West Campus High in Sacramento on Tuesday with a final score of 4-1.
 Although the Yellowjackets didn’t consider West Campus to be that good of a team, they were unable to find their footing until it was too late, scoring their lone goal towards the end of the game off David Alves’ foot. Hilmar coach Louie Bettencourt attributes his team’s loss to “lots of mistakes,” a horrible field and an inexperienced roster boasting seven sophomores.
The Warriors also caught the scoring bug late in the game as their final three goals were notched late in the second half.
“We couldn’t do what we wanted to do,” Bettencourt said. “We took too long to adapt.”
