in School/Sports

On Tuesday night, after a long drive to Turlock High School for all parties, a long boys’ soccer game ensued. It took 100 minutes, including 20 of double overtime, but Liberty Ranch made all the work worthwhile with a 4-2 penalty kick win for the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV boys’ soccer championship.

It was a scoreless affair with the defenses of both teams on the front foot and the attacks rarely getting shots.

Hawks coach Garrett Arechiga, coaching in his first postseason, delivered Liberty Ranch their first-ever title.

Turlock’s Sargis seeking continued success for Sac Republic

in Sports

Since signing his first professional soccer contract in early 2020, Turlock native Hayden Sargis has made a name for himself as a member of Sacramento Republic FC. Now, the 19-year-old is fighting through injury to continue that success as he returns to the pitch this weekend. 

Sargis picked up a soccer ball almost as soon as he could walk, starting at age four and advancing as far as the Olympic Development Program and the East Valley FC Earthquakes by age 13. Sargis became a member of the Republic FC Academy system at its inception in 2015 and became known as a reliable defender, notching 109 appearances, 92 starts and three goals in U.S. Development Academy action. 

His prowess on the pitch earned Sargis his first-ever contract, which he signed with Republic FC prior to the 2020 USL Championship season and viewed as a lifelong goal finally attained. Although currently playing as a USL team, Republic FC will make the move to MLS come 2022.

in Sports

Semi-professional soccer returned to Turlock last weekend as Academica SC defeated FC Davis by a score of 2-1 in what was the team’s first match in over a year.

Academica’s return to their home field last Saturday night was a fan affair, with about 300 eager fans making their way out to the pitch to watch the team play for the first time since the coronavirus put a premature end to the 2020 season. It was well worth the wait, as Academica secured the exciting victory in the final minutes of the game. 

The team has developed a friendly rivalry with Davis and as the winner of the game, Academica earned the annual contest's Milk Can Trophy, which looks exactly like it sounds.

Jordyn Silva would like to have one more season with younger sibling Cameron and the rest of the Manteca girls soccer team.

If it doesn't happen because of the coronavirus pandemic, her junior campaign is not a bad way to go out.

Inside of one week, the Silva sisters helped the Buffaloes capture their second Sac-Joaquin Section Division III title on Feb. 29 and make their first-ever appearance in a California Interscholastic Federation NorCal Regional appearance three days later.

That wasn't all for Jordyn, who, in that first week of March, committed to continue playing beyond high school at Stanislaus State — her top choice. This past weekend, she made it official by signing her National Letter of Intent to compete for one of the top programs in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. 

Persistence paid off for Silva, who kept Stanislaus State coach Gabe Bolton updated on her club tournament schedule during the recruiting process.

THE BEAUTIFUL BLOG Bay Area Soccer: SF City and SF Glens end seasons

in Local Roundup/Sports

On Friday night, Orange County SC U23 defeated SF City FC 3-1 in City’s final match of the season. With the result, City will finish in sixth place in USL League Two’s Southwest Division, a disappointing result for a club that had an abundance of talented players but was prone to the kind of defensive lapses that caused them to give up 39 goals this season, most in the eight-team division.

The match was decided in the first ten minutes. Excellent ball movement led to Orange County’s 7th-minute goal.

Goalkeeper Paulo Guerin played a long ball into City’s half. After two passes, Devin Cornejo sent in a cross from the right side that Miguel Berry headed past a leaping Marcus Lau.
