Sanpete soccer teams see action

 before season cancelled






The Hawks are in delightfully unfamiliar territory at the beginning of the season—winning.

North Sanpete boys’ soccer began the season 4-1, their best start in over 20 years, and went 2-1 last week with wins over Delta, 3-2, and Gunnison Valley, 3-0, before their first defeat, a 0-3 loss to South Summit.

Junior Denilson Hernandez impressed last week with three goals over two wins, and goalie Mrio Hernandez was credited with the shutout against Gunnison.



The Templars had a hot start but cooled off last week with a second consecutive loss.

Manti boys’ soccer fell to rival Juab, 3-2, to fall to 2-2 on the season.

Senior Juan Tinoco scored both goals for Manti. The senior already has six goals on the season.



The Bulldogs start to the season has been a mixed bag as they have started 2-2 on the season.

Gunnison boys’ soccer most recently lost 0-3 to North Sanpete, but prior, they defeated Beaver, 3-2.

The Bulldogs got out to a 2-0 halftime lead and got goals from Bryson Sorensen, Carson Tucker and Jon Wilden.
