FARMERSVILLE — The Sierra Pacific boys soccer team lost on the road to Farmersville 3-1.

Tuesday’s game had them trailing by two at halftime before forward Marco Sanchez scored in the 66th minute.

Gavin VanGronigen came close to tying the game when he hit the post in the 70th minute. Farmersville scored five minutes later to secure the win.
