The Sierra High sophomore basketball team bounced back from a one-point loss at Oakdale over the weekend to handle the Kimball Jaguars Wednesday in a 44-32 Valley Oak League win.

Sierra had early troubles in its home matchup with the Jaguars, going into halftime knotted in a 19-19 tie. Sierra found its way offensively, outscoring Kimball by a dozen thanks largely in part to the second half defense.

Jordan Thompson led the Timberwolves with a 13 point outing and Devin Nunez was the only other Sierra play to land in double-figures with 10.

Sierra will be back on the court Friday when they travel to take on Weston Ranch.




Sierra 51, Kimball 34

The Timberwolves opened the contest on a 19-6 run and held the visiting Jaguars to single digits in the first two quarters on their way to the VOL win Wednesday.

Tanner Peterson was scorching for Sierra (8-0, 16-0), sinking four 3-pointers on his way to a game-high 28 points. Daniel Wyatt Chipped in with seven for Sierra.

East Union 55, Oakdale 34

The Lancers cruised to an easy win after outscoring the Mustangs 30-19 in the first half.

Nine different Lancers (7-1, 14-4) tallied points in the win, with Austin Miller leading the way with 14. Both Kevin Jacobson and Payton Lund finished in double-figures with 11 and 10, respectively.


Sonora 39, Manteca 33

The Buffaloes were able to make things respectable after falling back by a dozen after the first half, but they could not pull out the win in a six point VOL loss Wednesday in Sonora.

Frankie Lopez led the Buffaloes (4-4, 10-8) with 11 points, while Angel Perez (six points) and Tyler Graves (five points) followed him.

The Buffaloes will host East Union Friday in league play.
