The host Westview Wolverines topped the Del Norte Nighthawks 13-6 in a Palomar conference matchup Monday night. The Nighthawks drew first blood early in the first quarter on a strong dodge and finish by senior midfielder Dusty Yohner, but after that it was all Westview, scoring 7 unanswered goals to take an insurmountable lead. The defensive unit led by junior goalkeeper Connor Ciemiewicz (5 saves) limited the Nighthawks ability to make quality shots on goal the entire night.
Standouts for the Wolverines included TJ Summers (6G, 3A), Cole Zarola (5G), Ryan Marasco (2G, 3A) and FOGO Nathan Wagner who was 16/22 (73%) at the X. Standouts for the Nighthawks were senior midfielder Dusty Yohner (3G) and freshman attackman Luke Welch (2G, 1A).
Both teams continue with conference play this Wednesday night as the Nighthawks (5-4) look to end their losing streak against the top-ranked Poway Titans (7-1) at Poway High school, while the Wolverines (6-1) host the Rancho Bernardo Broncos (2-7).
