Hawks rout Livingston in soccer
Central Valley High School's varsity boys soccer team lost for the first time in Western Athletic Conference play this season on Oct. 9.

The defending league champion Hawks shut out Livingston 3-0 on Thursday in Ceres.

"I was pretty confident we'd be able to bounce back," senior forward Diego Duran said.

The 1-0 setback at Patterson on Oct. 9 gives the Tigers the inside track at ending Central Valley's two-year reign.

Central Valley and Patterson, the top two teams in the WAC, had identical 6-1-1 records as of Sunday.

Central Valley tied and lost once to Patterson this year.

Livingston (3-3-1) dealt Patterson its lone loss in league.

"We just have to hope Patterson loses or ties and we win the rest of our games," Duran said.

The Hawks won by shut out against Livingston last week.

Omar Orozco scored twice.

Anthony Calvo had one goal.

Duran and Daniel Hernandez both dished out one assist.

David Saucedo collected four saves.

Central Valley led 2-0 at intermission.

Orozco scored in the 13th and 22nd minutes.

Saucedo stopped Livingston junior Victor Barajas' close-range shot attempt just before halftime.

Calvo accounted for the Hawks' final goal 15 minutes into the second half.

Hernandez delivered the pass.

"I didn't think it would be this easy," Duran said. "I thought it would be a closer game. We did great. We supported each other."
