In just its second year of existence, the West Ranch High lacrosse team clinched its first playoff spot over the weekend.

The West Ranch Wildcats beat Sierra Canyon 16-7 on Saturday to finish its regular season with an 11-3 record.

With the win, West Ranch earned a No. 14 seed in a 16-team unofficial CIF-Southern Section bracket. Technically, the playoffs are unofficial because there aren’t enough participating schools to warrant a postseason, according to a Southern Section bylaw.

Even so, the Wildcats will play their first playoff game today at 7 p.m. against No. 3 seed Thousand Oaks. The game will be played at Thousand Oaks High School.

“Our boys played well against Sierra Canyon to finish the regular season with 11 wins,” said Wildcats head coach Mike Borsos. “This was a great team effort. We are looking forward to the playoffs and the challenge that Thousand Oaks presents.”

J.K. Torres scored eight goals for West Ranch in the game and both Colton Long and Robert Wilcox each added three.

Torres is now at 66 goals on the year, which is No. 1 in the state, according to

Earlier this season, Torres scored 12 goals against Simi Valley, which set a state record for a single-game total.
Today, West Ranch will have to contend with a Thousand Oaks team that finished 14-2 and won the Marmonte League.

West Ranch was the Santa Clarita Valley’s first school to boast a CIF-sanctioned lacrosse team last year.
This year, Valencia High School joined the fold and ended up with a finishing record of 6-12.
