Napa Valley Prep Soccer: Justin-Siena girls blank American Canyon, 4-0


The Justin-Siena girls soccer team ended a 12-day break from competition by opening Vine Valley Athletic League play with a 4-0 win at American Canyon on Tuesday night.

The Braves (5-2 overall) scored every goal in the first half, as Tessa Salvestrin scored twice and Abigail Smith and Lela Hamilton once each.

Assists came from Jill Fischer, Mariel Caballero-Emana and Thais Thomson-Rangel.

Justin-Siena hosts Petaluma (3-2-3, 0-0-2 VVAL) at 6 p.m. Friday.

Iztlli Garcia converted a penalty kick in the second half as the Crushers (8-2-2, 3-0 VVAL) won by a single goal for the fourth time this season to stay atop the VVAL.

After Emmanuel Hurtado put a through ball into the box to Garcia, the Dragons’ goalkeeper came out of the net and fouled Garcia to set up the go-ahead kick.

Vintage co-coach Javier Covarrubias said Crushers keeper Cadel Newton and defenders Noel Lopez, Eric Reis, Flavio Guzman and Oscar Saucedo were key in the shutout.

“Sonoma's team put up a good fight and it was hard to break them down in the attacking third,” Covarrubias added.

The Crushers will host archrival Napa High in a Big Game at 6 p.m. Thursday at Memorial Stadium.

Blake Wisely scored both goals for the Braves in their road win Tuesday night.

A large part for why the 49ers are in the playoffs is due to the stellar work of DeMeco Ryans.
