A banged-up Alta California Sol soccer team suffered a 4-1 loss to the first-place Santa Ana Winds in a United Premier Soccer League match over the weekend in Lake Forest.

With several players nursing injuries, Alta fell behind 2-0 in the first half and never recovered.

Ivan Luna scored Alta’s goal in the 82nd minute off an assist from Marco Torres.

Alta, a men’s semi-pro soccer team based in Santa Barbara, returns home on Sunday to play Mafo FC of San Bernardino at 3:30 p.m.
