Placeholder Image

With some Manteca Area Soccer League games cancelled because of a lightning storm Sept. 12, many were moved to this past weekend at Woodward Park.

That made for a very busy weekend for some teams, one being the under-14 boys Sporting.

Sporting played twice Saturday and once more Sunday and went 3-0.

Franklin Guardado accounted for half of the team’s goals during an 8-6 barnburner over the Riverhawks. Jordan Moreno, Adrian Anguiano and Eduardo Avalos added one apiece.

Simon Torres, Guardado and Avalos recorded one each in the Sporting’s 3-1 victory over Barcelona, and the team finished the weekend with a decisive 6-1 triumph against AC Milan. Torres added two more goals to his weekend total, with one each coming from Anguiano, Guardado, Avalos and Moreno.
