Behind a trio of first-half goals in a 10-minute span, visiting Cosumnes Oaks blanked El Dorado 4-0 in boys Sierra Valley Conference soccer action Tuesday night.

Defeating the first-place, undefeated Wolfpack presented a tall order on the Cougars’ Senior Night. Before starting, El Dorado honored Jose Santana, Gabe Hurwitt, Joel Garcia, Tyler Rossi, Aaron Line and Richie Armstrong in their final home match.

Cosumnes Oaks (8-0-2) was aggressive, quick and skilled up front to put Cougar defenders Oscar Santana, Line, Armstrong and Rossi on their collective heels. That unit, and keeper Andrew Eells, survived the initial first few minutes before the dam broke and the ‘Pack recorded a hat trick.

Collin Bettencourt and Levi Velega split the scoring. Cosumnes’ first score was a give-and-go, its second on a lead pass and its third on a header off a cross.

Trailing 3-nil, El Dorado (1-8-1) tried to counter behind Santana, Hurwitt, Oscar Santana, Mike Segura, Alex Jimenez and Isaac Bugbee but the Wolfpack met the challenge defensively. Cougar attempts to link their midfield forward was repeatedly thwarted.

Eells and Co. continued making stops in the second half. El Dorado’s overall play increased in intensity and opportunities followed — all promising but none rewarded.

Line’s crisp send to the box of a set piece, his free kick from midfield that also reached inside the 18, Jose’s rocket off the crossbar, Hurwitt’s delivery to the box, Armstrong’s side throw-in and Bugbee winning a late corner gave the host chances not available in the first 40 minutes.

Comfortable with their advantage, the Wolfpack turned to their bench which the Cougars were able to contain. Bettencourt did return long enough to unleash a laser from long-range that beat Eells at the right post to complete the scoring.

Cosumnes Oaks also defeated El Dorado 4-0 in the first matchup late last month.
