The Manteca girls soccer team’s streak of shutouts ended Wednesday in a 4-4 draw with visiting Gregori.
Cami Silva scored all four for the Buffaloes (6-0-1), who had victory snatched away in the final minute. The Jaguars (3-0-1) from Modesto were awarded a free kick because of a handball just outside Manteca’s penalty box, and they converted.
“This was our first big test of the season, and we definitely saw some things we need to improve on,” Maneca coach Justin Coenenberg said. “It’s still early on in the preseason, so we’re going to get back to work and possibly tweak some things.”
Gregori struck first with two early goals. Manteca responded with Silva’s four tallies and led 4-2 at halftime. Alexia Alva assisted two, and Corrine Jones one.
Manteca opens their Buffalo Cup tournament Friday against Edison starting at 6:15 p.m.
