Cardinal attacker Daniel Stratton netted three goals and two assists Tuesday to lead SCCS varsity boys soccer to a 6-1 win over Desert High at Edward Air Force Base. With the win, SCCS improved to 2-1-1.

Chad Latch added a pair of goals and assisted on one of Stratton’s scores. Teammate Chris Marquez also scored and Thomas Zeilinger added an assist.
