1991: EU cruises by Buffs in VOL basketball

20 years ago: February 9, 1991
- Expanding a one-point advantage after the first quarter, East Union High cruised to an easy 75-56 win over crosstown rival Manteca High in Dalben Center Friday night. The win moved EU to 6-1 in the VOL and 21-4 overall, while MHS dropped to 1-6 and 8-16. Lancer Matt Harmon led all scorers with 20 points, 16 of those coming in the first half. Teammates Armando Avina and Eric Simoni added 18 and 16 points, respectively. Ricky Gleason led the Buffaloes with 13 points, with Jason Henderson pumping in 12. EU out-rebounded Manteca High, pulling down 31 to 17 for the Buffs.

Head coach Butch Linn employed a new strategy in the Manteca High girls team’s 65-58 win over Sonora High at Winter Gym on Tuesday. He told his team to relax. The win moved the Lady Buffs’ league record to 6-2, 17-7 overall. Erin Lathrop led a balanced MHS attack with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Sue Nunes and Maci Buck scored 14 points each, while Cateena Gleaves added 12 points and 10 rebounds.

What a difference a year makes. After finishing last season with a dismal 6-22 mark, the East Union High girls basketball team clinched at least a tie for the VOL crown with a 45-33 drubbing of Ceres High Thursday night at Dalben Center. The win left the Lady Lancers (8-1 VOL, 23-3 overall) with a one-game advantage over Sonora and Manteca Highs. After EU had built up a 35-14 lead early in the third quarter, Coach Mark Liles emptied his bench and went with at least three reserves on the court for the balance of the game. Freshman Danelle Liles led EU with 13 points. Angie Paradzinski had 13 rebounds for the Lady Lancers.

- The Manteca High basketball team dropped a nail-biter to West High 61-59 on Friday. The Buffaloes of Coach Paul Brogan had come back from a 10-point deficit in the final quarter and fell just two points short. MHS’s record falls to 14-13 overall and 5-7 in the VOL.

East Union High ruined Oakdale High’s Homecoming celebration last night by beating the host Mustangs 56-54 in the final seconds. The Lancers trailed by as much as 20 points in the first half of the contest. Matt Heihn and Steven Barrera each dropped in 17 points to lead Coach Eric Simoni’s boys. Erion Moore pulled down 10 rebounds in the victory.

Sierra High edged out Sonora High by a score of 70-65 in basketball action Friday night. The Timberwolves were led in scoring by Derrick Shaw, who scored 21 points. Four other T’wolves scored in double figures with Cedrick Oxendine scoring 13, Mike Williams and Will Moore with 11 counters and Patrick Hawk netting 10 points. Moore also had 10 assists in the game. With the win, Coach Scott Thomason’s boys improved their league mark to 8-4, 14-8 overall.

Sierra High’s soccer team held on to a one-goal lead to earn the win over relentless Manteca High on Thursday, 2-1. Lady T’wolf Cherie Early scored the first goal of the game 10 minutes in. Near the 20th minute of the contest, SHS’s Katelyn Quaresma curved a kick into the back post of the net for another score. Michelle Promes tallied the only Lady Buff goal of the game.

The East Union High soccer team proved once again why they are in first place on Thursday afternoon by beating Tracy High 6-0. It was the Lady Lancers’ eighth league shutout. Amber Stone, the VOL’s MVP, scored four times for EU. Loni Brewer and Jacqueline Davalos netted the other two goals. Goalie Amy Brewer stopped two Tracy shots, their only ones of the game.

The East Union High girls’ basketball team got a hard-earned victory over Oakdale High on Thursday 42-35. Holding the Lady Mustangs scoreless in the second quarter proved the difference in the game. Amy Haapanen led the Lancers with 13 points.

With the trouble beginning in the first quarter for the Manteca High girls basketball team, the Lady Buffs were dropped 36-22 by West High on Thursday night. The trouble was not being able to score in that period. Kristin Keech finally dropped in a three-pointer to break West’s 11-0 run. Sara Cross and Courtney Nutt each netted four points for the Lady Buffs. With the loss, Coach Joe Jacobs’ girls drop to 3-10 in league, 8-18 overall.

The Sierra High Lady T’wolves dropped an overtime decision to Sonora High 58-56 on Thursday. With a minute left in the game, Sierra had a four-point lead. Chyanne Jacomini scored 18 points and Trisha Werre and Lisa Young added 16 and 11 more, respectively, in the losing cause. Sierra shot only six for 18 from the free throw line, while Sonora dropped in 16 out of 27. “If we shoot only 50 percent then we could win the ball game,” said T’wolf Coach Dan Cunial. Sierra drops to 4-8 in league and 16-11 overall.
