NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED WEEKLY ON THURSDAY

Williams fares well in opening week

With the ending of the 2019 football season, soccer is now in full swing. The Williams Yellowjackets opened their season against the Colusa RedHawks on Dec. 2, in Colusa. Williams walked away with a 1-1 tie. 

Michael Cervantes gave the assist on Mauricio Morales’ penalty kick form the 11-yard line, serving as the only goal of the game for the Yellowjackets. Jacket Goalie, Luis Araujo, saved Williams several times to keep a tie score, 1-1. 

“We had them for a long time,” said Coach Humberto Guzman. “It was a good close game.” 

Back in action last Thursday, Williams hosted the Esparto Spartans and came away with a 2-1 loss. Injuries plagued the Yellowjackets with a head injury on goalie Araujo, at the end of the first half, and another on defensive back, Omar Lomeli. 

“Even though we lost, I am not upset,’ said Guzman. “I saw how each and every player tried their hardest; we just couldn’t get the ball behind the net. I am proud of my team and their hard work.” 

Williams will host Durham Thursday with a 3:15 PM start time. â–
