The first Viking goal came 19 seconds in on a Makenna Pendleton strike from the right side of the box off a Matthew Korpontinos assist. 15 minutes later the score was 5-0 and the West Valley men's soccer team was on its way to an impressive 8-1 win over Feather River Saturday in Saratoga. A Viking offense operating at warp speed got first-half goals from Alexis Rincon (Rudolfo Castro assist) at 10', Rincon again (Pendleton) at 12', Leo Fernandez (Pendleton) 10 seconds later, Castro (Korpontinos, Fernandez) at 15', and Rincon yet again (Castro) at 23'. The second half started out much the same, as Andy Navarez drilled home a Pendleton pass two minutes after the break. Mario Larios completed the WVC scoring in the 67th minute off a Tom Barker helper. The Vikings (4-1-1) complete preseason action 9/25 at Evergreen Valley (5-2-1) and then host Chabot (2-3-0) 10/2 in the Coast Conference opener. Both matches start at 4:00pm.
