December 16, 2003
Tribune staff reports
The High Sierra Wild swept their two-game roadtrip by soundly defeating the Stockton Colts 9-2 Saturday night in Stockton and the San Francisco Saber Cats 7-0 on Sunday morning in San Francisco.
The Wild’s defense led by Brandon Rader was outstanding allowing very few shots during the two-game sweep. Other defensive standouts for the Wild were Jon Betts, Angela Nelson and Austin Hoyt. Goalies Matt Scherer and Ty O’Neil each earned a victory.
Jimmy Thorngren, Devyn Hotho, Chris Rogusky and Jordan Devlin were top scorers for the weekend.
For the second straight week the Wild have moved up in the Norcal Peewee B standings, now holding the fourth spot in the nine-team league.
“The top four teams make the playoffs, so that is what the kids are eyeing,” said head coach Jim Hoyt.
