SONORA — It’s never easy to win at Sonora, but that’s exactly what the East Union freshman girls basketball team did Thursday night, 36-25.

Allison Telles led the way with nine, and Klasey Kachalkin had eight.

Kelsey Emmerson added six, and Destiny Bishop dominated the glass.

“It’s always crazy going to Sonora,” EU head coach Larissa Founts said. “The drive is a killer. But the girls stepped it up in the fourth. I’m so proud of them for pulling this one out.”

Eddie Andrade (12 points) nailed the game winning 3-pointer with two seconds left on the clock, lifting the T’Wolves over Sonora in the foothills.

Jerrod Patton led the way with 13, and Mike Unterholzner added six.

“The last play was designed to get to the hop for two, but they pressured the ball on the inbounds,” Sierra head coach Justin Muschott said. “Grant Widmer did a good job beating the pressure and then Edy Guzman found the open man for the game winner.

“It was a big win on the road for us. A great team win.”
