Cameron Silva fired five goals and assisted three others, as the Manteca High girls soccer team rolled past Weston Ranch 10-0 Tuesday in its annual Kicking for a Cure game.

This year’s event benefits 15-year-old Mason Ferrulli, who is battling a brain tumor. MHS coach Justin Coenenberg said donations will be collected until the end of the month.

The Buffaloes (8-1, 17-3 overall) are nearing the end of a heated race for the Valley Oak League championship. They’ll host cross-town rival East Union on Thursday.

Emilee Craighead backed Silva’s monster night with a hat trick. Fellow seniors Caitlyn Wong and Isabella Pires added a goal apiece. Wong also had two assists, and Sienna Jones had one.


Sierra 5, Oakdale 1

The Timberwolves (9-1-1 VOL, 14-4-2 overall) sent off their seniors with a lopsided win at Daniel Teicheira Memorial Stadium.

Jocelin Roa burned Oakdale (3-9, 7-11-1) for two goals and two assists. Senior Alexus Rossi chipped in one goal and one assist. Presley Perez and Hailey Cruz added one goal each. Annika Beall picked up three saves.



Ripon 36, Escalon 31

The Indians (5-4, 14-9 overall) stunned the TVL’s top team on the road, forcing a two-way tie for first place. They held Escalon (7-2, 17-4-1) to four points in the third quarter but it was still anybody’s game in the fourth.

Sierra Hollis drilled a key 3-pointer near the end, and Kaylee Hutchinson iced it with a pair of free throws.

“I thought the girls came out ready to play, and they came out with a little more energy than the last time we played them (in a 41-38 loss),” Ripon coach Rick Inderbitzin said. “I knew it was going to be tough, but I also knew we could hand with them and give them a run for their money.”

Hutchinson finished with 13 points and five rebounds. Hollis added seven points and 11 rebounds. Emily Sesser pitched in six points, all of which made up the bulk of Ripon’s eight points in the third.

Ripon travels to co-leading Hughson on Thursday.


Livingston 62, Ripon Christian 57

Emma De Bruyn knocked down a game-tying 3-pointer for visiting Ripon Christian (2-5 Trans-Valley League, 3-13 overall) with 45 seconds remaining, but the Wolves (3-4, 7-11) answered with a 3 of their own followed by two game-sealing free throws.

DeBruyn finished with nine points. Kristen Van Elderen led RC with 16 points, including four 3s. Maddie Yonker contributed 12 points. Kali Cunningham paced Livingston with 15 points, while three others ended with 12 apiece.


Lathrop 52, Beyer 50

The Spartans (9-2, 19-6 overall) were seemingly on their way to putting away a comfortable Western Athletic Conference win but wound up holding on for a close win. They led 37-27 after three quarter.

Egypt Jenkins accumulated 16 points and 10 rebounds. Kiersin Constantino contributed 10 points, seven assists and four steals. Sanah Sunner tallied nine points and three steals. Isa Paniagua collected eight rebounds, four steals and three assists to go with four points. Sydney Hanks added four points and eight rebounds.

Alana Hildreth paced Beyer (3-6, 6-15) with 18 points, while Makhayla Mattox had 15.



Weston Ranch 3, Oakdale 3

The Cougars (8-1-2 VOL, 18-4-4 overall) built a 3-0 halftime lead but settled for the draw on Monday.

Aaron Silva scored twice and had an assist. Alexis Chavez accounted for Weston Ranch’s other goal.
