Jesus "Chito" Herrera scored a career-high six goals as the Del Norte High boys soccer team routed Illinois Valley High, 11-2, in Cave Junction, Ore., on Tuesday.

Warriors senior Juan Alvarado joined Herrera in recording a hat trick, netting three goals and four assists against the Cougars. Niano Santos and Aldair Garcia also contributed goals for Del Norte (1-0 overall).

The Warriors did not play Wednesday, as Ferndale High has no boys soccer team.

Del Norte's next contest is Tuesday against Illinois Valley in Crescent City at 5:30 p.m.
