Wegener, Vasquez provide all scoring in Mitchell's 4-1 victory

WESLEY CHAPEL — In their last meeting, Mitchell and Wesley Chapel battled to a tie. This time around, things were not as close as the Mustangs received two goals apiece from Alex Wegener and David Vasquez to easily dispatch the Wildcats 4-1 on Tuesday night.

"That was our first totally complete game, and we still should have scored even more," Mitchell coach Oscar Ubillus said. "A lot of our players had some of their best games tonight.

"We don't have one player that stands out, and besides a couple slipups tonight we played really well."

And there weren't very many mistakes from the Mustangs (6-1-1), especially in the early going. Vasquez and Wegener scored no less than 15 minutes in, but the Wildcats (3-4-1) showed some life after their first shot on goal landed in the back of the net, when Rafael Morales-Siu scored with 19:20 remaining in the first half.

But the second half belonged to Mitchell.

The Mustangs got two more goals from Vasquez and Wegener to seal the game. Mitchell finished with a 28-10 shots on goal advantage.

"They are a strong team and my hope was to hang with them tonight," Wildcats coach Brian Dorkowski said.

"We had a good game with them last time, but we made mistakes tonight and they will capitalize on them."

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.

    Adeiny Hechavarria has emerged as one of baseball’s top defensive shortstops in the past three seasons with the Marlins.
