The Sierra High Timberwolves continued their winning ways Friday in a 34-7 Valley Oak League win over the Lathrop Spartans.

Sierra was able to get back on the right track after getting beat by Sonora a week ago, putting the game away early against the Spartans. Quarterback Guillermo Nunez had another solid effort for the Timberwolves, guiding the offense in the blowout.

Nunez tossed three touchdown passes in the win, two coming to wide out D’Ari Abercrombie and the third being a 50-yard strike to Robert Ramierez.

Sierra’s defensive unit was led by Kyle Kuperus, Greyson Yarnell, Angel Villanueva, Manny Rodriguez and Justin Dehart.

The Timberwolves will look to close out the 2010 season with a winning performance in a trip to Stockton to take on the Weston Ranch Cougars.

Weston Ranch 27, Kimball 27
Quarterback James Simerley plunged in a conversion attempt for Weston Ranch with 7:48 remaining in the game to tie the game with a score that would hold for the remainder of the contest in a 27-27 tie with visiting Kimball in Valley Oak League sophomore action on Friday.

 “It feels good to play a good second half of football,” Cougars coach Seth Davis said. “But football is four quarters and we didn’t show up the first half and that is what stopped us.

“I am glad that our guys finished strong and didn’t quit.”

 Simerley was 9-of-18 passing for 144 yards, with a 50-yard touchdown pass to Michael Perez and a 1-yard touchdown run. Sean Visperas returned an interception 85 yards for a Weston Ranch touchdown and Sergio Ramirez scored the game’s final touchdown n a 1-yard run.  

Trans Valley League
Ripon 56, Riverbank 6
The Ripon High sophomore squad routed Riverbank Friday at Stouffer Field, 56-6.

“We’re going for the Trans Valley League title,” Indians coach Jorge Velasco said.

In order to do so, Ripon must get past a tough Orestimba (8-1) squad next week.

Offensively, the Indians (7-2) were paced by Kyle Wengel, who scored a pair of touchdowns, and Dylan Haines, who also scored twice including one on a pass-play from quarterback Josh McCreath.

Adam Cavillo and Cody Ley-han added a pair of defensive scores.

McCreath was optimistic about his team’s chances at Orestimba.

“Right now, we’re coming together as a team,” he said.
