Sammie Morris finished with a hat trick and set Manteca High’s girls’ varsity soccer scoring mark at the same time during an 8-0 rout of Lathrop on Tuesday.

Morris scored the Buffaloes’ third, fourth and fifth goals as she helped her team improve to 8-3-1 in VOL, 16-5-1 overall. She now has 65 goals in her decorated four-year career at Manteca.

Sialei Manuleleua netted Manteca’s first goal to make it 1-0 early on an assist by Morris. Leah Manuleleua scored second off an assist by Katie Locke. Morris provided Manteca the 3-0 cushion at the half and pushed the margin to five and six in the second half. Chenayi Tavaziva scored the Buffaloes’ fourth and seventh goals. The goal that made it 7-0 was assisted by Jasmine Odell.  Adaze Nkwocha made up the final score after an assist by Anna Arriola.

Manteca will play again Thursday night at Oakdale at 6:30 p.m.
