Early in the opening moments of play last year it all started wrong in Shasta for Ohlone when the Renegades lost one of their starting backs for the season to a collision with a Shasta forward. The injury took the wind of the Ohlone's sail and the best Ohlone could muster was a 0-0 draw on the road.

This afternoon Ohlone took a lesson from that game and the opening two games of this season, for a formula that put Greivin Pacheco Quesada (Soph.) on the scoreboard in a big way with a hat trick plus one, and an added assist to boot. Quesada found the net early in minute 7 when Silver Silva (Soph.) plucked a sharp ball between the left and center back that Quesada picked up and carried toward the keeper, Zach Golden. Quesada neatly slotted the ball to the right side of the Shasta goalkeeper.

Despite the early goal, Shasta would apply pressure on the Ohlone midfield line forcing Jorge Alcaraz (Fr.) and Hector Romero (Soph.) to keep a tight watch. Brannon Romac for the Shasta Knights found himself in scoring possession in minute 12 but Chase Brower put a full body block on the shot helping Ohlone keeper, Michael Beigarten (Soph.) keep a clean sheet.

Ohlone's second goal came off a long throw from the Ohlone left side when Quesada's twin striker Martin Lopez (Soph.) launched a throw-in that set Quesada free on a 50 yard running resulting in narrow angle shot that cleared the keeper and found the net. Quesada found his hat trick in minute 30 after as outside left back Taylor Leidheisl (Soph.) put a long flighted ball over the Knights back line for Quesda to run onto for a goal and stuttering the Shasta side's hopes. Quesada put his passing skills to use as a final goal for the half was tallied by Elton Ceja (Fr.) off a cross.

Taylor Leidheisl found a crowded goal area the prefect opportunity to plunk a header off of Carlos Gomez Hernandez's (Fr.) corner kick. Chris Lopez (Fr.) broke down the Shasta outside line to find a cross that Quesada would put in for his last of the game.

Ohlone's final goal was hit off a set piece from 25 yards out as Ohlone GK and specialty kicker for set piece put a left footed bender that sailed over the wall and was neatly kissing the near post at it slide into the goal.
