Vanguard rolls on, 5-1

* SOCCER: The Vanguard men's soccer team continued its impressive

start Wednesday, earning a 5-1 nonconference road victory at

Occidental College.

Junior forward Jose Hernandez scored three goals to pace the Lions

(4-0), netting his first goal 70 seconds into the contest.

Sophomore Dave McAulay put Vanguard up, 2-0, in the sixth minute,

but Flint Wilkerson tallied for the hosts and the score was 2-1 at

halftime.

Hernandez scored in the 56th minute, then senior Sean Ganey

converted a header and Hernandez booted in a penalty kick to round

out the scoring for the Lions.

Sophomore goalkeeper Tommaso Bianchi made 10 saves for the winners.

It's the best start for Vanguard since 1997 when the team also

opened 4-0.

It was the season opener for Occidental.

Weislmaier eliminated

* TENNIS: Dieter Weislmaier, a Costa Mesa resident expected to

play tennis for Vanguard University in the spring, fell in the

semifinals Monday at the Costa Mesa Tennis Center of a prequalifying

tournament for the 2003 Diadora Pro-Championship, a USTA men's

futures event to be held at the same venue Sept. 15-21.

Weislmaier, who sneaked past No. 2-seeded Cameron Ball in the

third round when the Newport Beach resident had to default due to

injury, lost to No. 4-seed Aaron Yovan in the semifinals, 7-5, 4-6,
