Central Valley High School's varsity girls soccer team is experiencing unprecedented success this season.

The Hawks remained unbeaten on the year after topping Patterson and Livingston in Western Athletic Conference play this past week in Ceres.

"We started both games a little slow, but got it together, and played beautiful soccer," head coach Cyndi Meshach said. "We're progressing like expected. We just need to stay focused."

Central Valley improved to 9-0-0 overall and 2-0-0 in the WAC standings following its 3-0 victory over Patterson on Wednesday.

Laiza Quintero led the way on offense with a hat trick.

Jocelyn Lopez and Evelyn Andrade both collected one assist.

Hawk goalie Emely Lopez tallied three saves while posting the shutout.

Central Valley opened WAC play with a 3-1 win against Livingston on March 14.

Quintero, Yesenia Zuniga and Sarah Silva all scored once for the Hawks.

Andrade, Jocelyn Rodriguez and Mariana Garibay chipped in with one assist each.

Emely Lopez and Stephanie Lopez split playing time at goalkeeper.

Emely made two saves and allowed no goals.

Stephanie had three saves.

The Hawks are vying for their second Sac-Joaquin Section playoff berth and first conference title.

Central Valley compiled an 8-3-1 record on its way to a runner-up finish behind crosstown-rival Ceres High in the WAC standings a year ago.

"This group of girls is up to every challenge put in front of them," Meshach said. "They're looking to make history."

The Hawks will play at Pacheco today at 4 p.m.
