A brief lightning storm abruptly ended a stirring clash between the under-14 girls Blizzards and Manteca United in Manteca Area Soccer League action Saturday at Woodward Park.

The contest ended at halftime with the United up 1-0. Anna Arriola recorded the game’s only goal. Keeper Taylor Gray helped preserve the first-half shutout by stuffing a lazer shot by Blizzards forward Jessica Milobar.

On the other end, Alex Tolman did well to keep the damage to a minimum with constant pressure coming from United’s Jasmine D’Amico, Cynthia Randall and Nikkie Rodriguez.

In other MASL action from this past weekend:

Shooters 2, Kickers 1

Rosemarie Woods scored on an indirect kick from the top of the 18-yard penalty box, and Leslie Chavez punched in the deciding goal in the second half to lead the Shooters.

McKenna Balmut helped seal the victory with her play in the goal box, and Andriana Baldibia had a game-saving save on a penalty kick.

Rockets 1, Warriors 1

Another game halted because of the lightning, Madison Burch provided one of the highlights with a goal. Jordan Damico, Taysha McGuire and Gwenyth Berry played well defensively.
