Hawks win final non-league game•CV posts 14-1 win over Beyer
Central Valley High School's varsity boys soccer team set a program record for goals in a single game last week.

The Hawks routed Beyer 14-1 on Tuesday, Sept. 8 in Modesto.

"I don't really like these types of games because we don't really learn a lot," Central Valley standout forward Antonio Cabrera said.

Cabrera tallied a career-best five goals, to go along with two assists.

Jose Ramirez had two goals and three assists.

Daniel Ochoa scored twice.

Hugo Contreras chipped in with one goal and an assist.

Billie Chanthavong, Larry Hernandez, Nestor Berumen and Gerardo Cazares contributed one goal each.

Jonathan Ramos picked up two assists.

"We worked as a team," Antonio said. "That's how I was able to score my goals. I didn't do it by myself."

"That's crazy," Hawk head coach Omar Leon said while talking about Cabrera's record-breaking scoring performance. "No player has ever done that since I've been here. It's impressive."

Central Valley built a commanding 8-0 lead in the first half.

Cabrera scored four times in a six-minute span.

Ramirez had two goals.

Contreras and Chanthavong both contributed one goal.

"We didn't expect to win by this much," Cabrera said. "We played great."

Ahead 11-0, the Hawks surrendered a goal 25 minutes into the second half . Leon threw his hat to the ground in disgust as Beyer spoiled Central Valley's bid for a shutout.

"We can't make mistakes like that," Leon said. "We lost concentration."

Central Valley collected four wins, two losses and two ties during non-conference play.

"We had a good preseason," Cabrera said. "Now we got to show it in league."

Added Leon: "It's not going to be easy."

The Hawks captured the Valley Oak League crown, advanced to the semifinal round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV playoffs and finished 17-3-2 on the year in 2008.
