The Weston Ranch Cougars have not missed a beat since their midseason loss to Manteca High, bringing home another Valley Oak League win with an 8-1 defeat of Sierra Tuesday.

The Cougars took advantage of a short-staffed Sierra team, winning on all fronts except for the No. 1 singles. Weston Ranch got wins from Sukhman Singh (6-1, 6-1), Kevin Yamayoshi (6-0, 6-0), Serbinder Singh (6-0, 6-1), Adrian Andrade (6-1, 6-0) and Raymond Lago (6-0, 6-3).

Doubles were a clean sweep for the Cougars, with Ajay Bainiwal and Mark Legaspi teaming up for the day’s most exciting match, fending off Sierra’s Jonnel Alcantara and Eric Ng 4-6, 6-1 (10-7).

Sierra’s No. 1 singles Forrest Tolman improved to 10-1 on the season, handling Weston Ranch’s top seed 6-1, 6-1.

“We had a good match from Forrest,” Sierra head coach Vanessa Weeks said. “Considering we were missing two of our top five players, we competed well.”

Manteca 9, East Union 0

The Buffaloes continued to tighten their strangle hold on the VOL, disposing of East Union 9-0 Tuesday in league play.

The Buffaloes (11-0) were dominant on both the singles and doubles courts, getting one-sided victories from Oral Nunis (6-1, 6-1), Michael Lopez (6-0, 6-0) and Jacob Webb (6-2, 6-2).

“So far so good for us this season,” Manteca head coach Frank Fontana said. “We are just hoping to continue to progress.”
