It's not like there's been any shortage of clouds, so there was bound to be a silver lining or two.
The Warriors boys soccer team lost all three of its matches during the rescheduled Garces Holiday Tournament on Saturday, Jan. 7, just four days after losing 2-1 at Rosamond.
Against Rosamond, the Warriors gave up two first-half goals, then managed just Eddie Graham's second-half goal.
“We played very good coming out of our month layoff,” coach Dennis Wolfe said. “It just wasn't our day.”
Then, the Warriors lost 4-1 to San Joaquin Memorial, 3-2 to McFarland and 3-2 to Coast Union at the Garces tournament, which was rained out a week earlier.
Memorial got three of its four goals against the Warriors on an own goal, a penalty kick and an indirect free kick. Two of Coast Union's goals were off deflections “that just happened to go in,” Wolfe said.
Rex Stancli had two goals on the day for the Warriors, while David Andrade, Eli Fisher and Luis Tirado had the other goals.
The Warriors were scheduled to open their South Yosemite League season on Wednesday, Jan. 11, at West, and were to play at home against Independence on Friday, Jan. 13.
