It took a while to get going at Lincoln Park Thursday, but once the Manteca frosh-soph soccer team kicked it into gear, it was lights out.

Giovanni and Ricardo Marin both scored a pair of goals as the Buffaloes went on a decisive 4-0 scoring streak in the final 12 minutes of the first half and cruised to a 6-1 win.

Charlton Shankar and Nacho Valdovinos both found net for the Buffs as well.
