It did not take the Sierra Timberwolves too long to take care of the visiting Central Valley Hawks, securing the Valley Oak League win with a five-run fifth inning to clip the Hawks for good Wednesday.

Sierra (6-5 VOL, 12-9) got a strong outing from senior Gabby Hawkins. Hawkins was masterful in her five innings of work, surrendering just two hits and striking out nine for the win. Hawkins also went 1 for 2 at the plate and came around to score once.

Sommer Wilson led the Timberwolves’ offensive attack, putting together a 3 for 4 showing, complete with a triple and a homerun. Iyana Hughes helped the cause with a 2 for 4 performance, scoring twice for the Timberwolves. Shakira Lewis also had a multi-hit game for Sierra, going 2 for 4 and scoring two runs.

Sierra scored two in the third, three in the fourth and closed it out with the five-run fifth.

The Timberwolves will look to make it back-to-back victories when they travel to Lathrop to take on the Spartans Friday at 4 p.m.

East Union 9, Sonora 0
SONORA – Jackie Ketner did her job and then some, holding the Wildcats quiet with a complete-game victory in VOL action Wednesday.

Ketner was her usual dominant self, surrendering just four hits and striking out six to pace the Lancers.

“It’s been really nice to see Jackie pitch so well,” East Union head coach Brian Goulart said. “Like I have said a thousand times, when she’s pitching great it makes our defense better.

“Our girls like playing defense behind her because she throws strikes and they know she’s going to battle.”

Cherie DeJesus continued to swing the hot bat for the Lancers, going 3 for 3 with a mammoth 3-run homer in the first inning. Catcher Brittany Lamar and first baseman Cassie Waggy both went 3 for 4, while Jillian Goulart finished the contest 3 for 5.

Sophomore Kelsey Emerson went 2 for 2 in limited action, while Cherrise Martin went 2 for 3 in the win.

East Union (11-2, 19-5) will be back on the diamond today when they play host to the Weston Ranch Cougars at Northgate Park.

The Lancers (10-3, 18-6) will be back on the diamond today when they play host to the Weston Ranch Cougars at Northgate Park.
