Manteca led 2-0 at the half and took a 3-0 advantage before Viviana Albor scored Oakdale’s lone goal of the game off an assist from Krissy Lolonis.

The Lady Mustangs (4-3-0, 0-1-0) will be off until Jan. 4, 2018 when they travel to Manteca to take on the Sierra Timberwolves (10-0-1, 1-0-0). Sierra is coming off a 9-0 win over Lathrop. This game is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. Oakdale was originally supposed to take on East Union on Tuesday, Jan. 2 but the game has been rescheduled for Saturday, Jan. 13.
