CERES – Sierra High trailed the Ceres Bulldogs by four heading into the intermission, but a blistering hot third quarter provided the Timberwolves with all the separation they would need in their 59-53 win over the host Bulldogs.

“We came out and played much better defense in the second half,” Sierra head coach Justin Muschott said. “We were able to hold them to just five points in the third quarter and that was huge for us.”

Sierra (2-0 VOL, 6-4 overall) was led by Joseph Berry’s 19 points and Johnny Waggy came in behind him with 11. Kayson Matela added nine and Mike Leland chipped in with eight.

Now the Timberwolves will try and push it to three straight in league and five overall when they play host to the East Union Lancers Friday.

“It’s nice going into that game playing well and having a little bit of momentum,” Muschott said. “It really should be a battle.”

Weston Ranch 63, Central Valley 31

CERES – The Cougars took care of business in their debut for the VOL season, knocking off Central valley with ease for their first league win.

Dillon Alexander led the Cougars with a game-high 33 point performance, outscoring the entire Central valley team by a bucket. Teammate Gurjant Leader added nine and Daniel Nelson finished with seven.

The Cougars will look for two straight when they travel to Manteca to take on the Buffaloes Friday.

Manteca 53, Lathrop 49

LATHROP – The Spartans cut a nine-point Manteca High lead to three late in the fourth quarter, but that would be as close as Lathrop would get in their second consecutive VOL loss.

Lathrop (0-2, 2-8) was led by Ricky Chavez’ 19 points and teammate Jan Villanueva added 11.

East Union 56, Sonora 50

The Lancers bounced back from a 27-22 halftime deficit to beat the visiting Wildcats 56-50 Wednesday at the Dalben Center.

Brock Swift led the Lancer scoring attack with 19 points.

East Union (2-0, 7-2) will take the road for a battle with cross-town for Sierra High Friday.

Sierra 76, Ceres 18

CERES – The Timberwolves remained perfect on the season and took their second league win in style, blowing past the host Bulldogs by nearly 60 points.

Gillermo Nunez led the Timberwolves with 14, while Marc Wilson and Emmanuel Elijah chipped in with 12 and 11, respectively.

Sierra (2-0, 9-0) will look to stay perfect when they play host to the East Union Lancers Friday.

Manteca 55, Lathrop 44
LAHTROP — The Buffaloes had three players in double figures on their way to a VOL win over the host Lathrop Spartans.

Aaron Ramos led the Buffaloes with 14 points, while teammates Ryan Bauch and Nick Garcia both added 10. Rodney Fryer led the defensive charge and chipped in nine points on the offensive end.

Manteca (2-0, 5-4) will try and run it to three straight when they play host to the Weston Ranch Cougars Friday.

East Union 47, Sonora 43
Will Brink held the hot hand for the Lancers, connecting for 19 points in the Lancers VOL win over visiting Sonora.
