OKANOGAN – Okanogan moved up the Caribou Trail League soccer standings by handing Quincy its first loss of the season, 5-1, Saturday.
“We did a great job defensively, keeping the ball on their side of the field and not allowing them easy opportunities to score,” Okanogan coach Dean Klepec said. “When they got shots off, (goalkeeper) Enrique Vargas (12 saves) made great saves.”
“Our midfield also did a great job of pressuring them and distributing the ball and as did our forwards who finished well.”
Jason Perez got the Bulldogs on the board on an assist from Fabian Rodriguez.
After Quincy tied the match, Justin Rivas scored from Perez before Perez scored from Rivas for a 3-1 halftime lead.
Both goals in the second half came with Vargas booting to Perez, who passed to Rivas for the score.
