SONORA — Jordyn Silva and Kaley Miller scored two goals apiece on Wednesday, helping Manteca’s girls soccer team get a revenge win against Sonora, 6-2.
Sonora visited the Buffaloes for a non-league match last season and prevailed, 3-1. The Wildcats (1-1-1) gave them some fits to start the match Wednesday before Manteca (3-0-1) took control.
“They have some really good players who play with some of ours for San Juan (Soccer Club), so we had to pay them a lot of attention,” Manteca coach Justin Coenenberg said. “We made a formation adjustment and were able to limit their shots and create quite a few of our own opportunities.”
Buffs goalie Aimee Meier was busiest in the opening 10 minutes when she made the majority of her 12 saves. Silva then struck for her two goals and off they went. Younger sister Cameron Silva gave Manteca (3-0-1) a 3-1 lead going into halftime, getting an assist from Kaylee Gines.
Caitlynn Wong opened scoring in the second half and was set up by fourth-year starter Miller, who then knocked in the team’s final two.
Manteca hosts its annual Buffalo Cup on Friday and Saturday.
