Kareena Escartin did the job as a goalie in the first half, and she was just as effective doing work in the opponent’s goal area at Woodward Park Saturday.
The part-time keeper was part of a combined shutout with Megan Harlan and scored two second-half goals to highlight the Fury’s 4-0 win over the Breakers in under-14 girls Manteca Area Soccer League play.
Escartin also had two saves, while Harlan — who scored one goal in the first half — tallied three. Georgia Arriola contributed a goal and was instrumental in keeping the sheets clean. Arriola was a part of the back-line core of Haylee Chance, Jennifer Ibarra-Bejar and Gavin Kaur that relentlessly protected the Fury’s goal.
Destiny Hernandez stood out at midfield and had two near-miss goal attempts.

Marc Soto and Matthew Dunham combined for nine saves at goal, but Joshua Valdez came up with the biggest one when he deflected a penalty kick away from danger.
Simon Hinmon displayed good heart and hustle on defense and was a big reason why United was held scoreless in the second half.
Killer Sharks 4, Voltage 3
Omar Lopez fired three goals, while Luke Abrew added one of his own off a nice delivery from Nolan Calmes.
