CERES – Sierra High knows they are flying under the radar, but that doesn’t mean the Timberwolves are not flying high after their 67-52 win over the Ceres Bulldogs keeps Sierra atop of the Valley Oak League standings after Wednesday’s contests.

Sierra (2-0 VOL, 9-4 overall) used a dominating fourth quarter to blow past the Bulldogs in their home gym.

“We take every game the same,” Sierra head coach Scott Thomason said. “Every game is a big game for us. We had the three “P”s going tonight, purpose, poise and passion. We just want to continue to run our system, play hard and try to continue to play for 32 minutes.

“We’re getting closer; we’re getting better, but we still have a ways to go.”

Trevor Nogueira led a trip of Timberwolves that ended in double-figures with 19 points including three 3-pointers. William Ward added 17 and teammate Eddie Guzman chipped in with 11.

The Timberwolves will try and keep its momentum rolling when they play host to the East Union Lancers Friday at 7:15 p.m.

Manteca 70, Lathrop 32
LATHROP – The Buffaloes had little problem making it two straight wins to open league play with a comfortable 70-32 win over the Spartans.

Lathrop was led by Aivery Lewis’ 10 points and teammate Umar Murisett chipped in eight. The Spartans will be back on the court Friday when they make the trip to Oakdale to take on the Mustangs. Manteca will be home against the Weston Ranch Cougars.

Weston Ranch 59, Central Valley 36
CERES – The Cougars’ start to the VOL season was delayed by a bye, but they were able to make up for lost time with a 59-36 win over the Hawks. Nate Moises handled the bulk of the scoring, turning in a game-high 18 points.

Jason Steele dominated on the glass, pulling down 11 boards while dishing out five assists and scoring four points.

The Cougars (1-0, 5-7) will have their hands full when they try and grab their second victory, matching up with defending league champion Manteca High Friday. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.
