After a solid showing in its win over Oakdale, Sierra dug itself an early hole it couldn’t recover from in its VOL loss Thursday to Sonora.

“We fought back late and cut it to 11,” Sierra head coach Steve Unterholzner said. “It was a nice comeback sparked by the defense of Kayla Wilson and Katelyn Teixeira.”

Wilson led all scorers with 19, while Teixeira chipped in with nine. Celine Barber followed her with eight points in the loss.

Sierra (3-7, 7-15) will be back on the court looking for a win against East Union in its next league battle.
