Mariah Navarro and Dallas Mould were outstanding for the Manteca sophomore girls basketball team in a 49-36 win over Sonora Tuesday night at Winter Gym.

Navarro finished with 11 points, five assists and three steals, while Mould contributed 10 points, 12 rebounds and three steals.

“We had a rough first quarter, but after we got through it, we played three great quarters of basketball,” Manteca head coach Mary Ann Tolbert said. “The girls pressed well and brought an intensity to the court we have missed at the end of some of our games.”

Aierenne Curry and Gabby Escobedo chipped in eight points and three boards apiece.

“I hope this is the beginning to a strong second half of league,” Tolbert said.

Manteca travels to Oakdale Thursday.
