Watsonville still unbeaten in MBL

Posted: Thursday, Apr 18th, 2013




The Watsonville Wildcatz kept their perfect record intact in a three set sweep against the Carmel Padres.

The win was never in doubt in any set as they won the first 25-9, the second 25-10 and the third 25-14.

Armando Torres lead the Wildcatz with 17 kills and he also added eight digs and three blocks.

Ivan Mendez led the Catz in Assists with 25. Claudio Martinez had a game-high 16 digs.

The powerhouse Watsonville team will travel to Seaside today to face the Spartans. The last time they faced them Watsonville was tested, but ultimately took the win in four sets.

They’re just three games away from an undefeated record and the MBL title, which would be Watsonville’s first.
