ROUNDUP: Upstart Lancers lock down Tracy in girls basketball
Bulletin sports logo

The East Union girls basketball team showed no signs of slowing down Monday despite its taxing schedule, taking down visiting Tracy 48-28 with another solid all-around effort.

Nylah Dyson poured in a game-high 18 points after leading the Lancers (5-1) to their second straight Golden Valley Tournament championship on Saturday. It doesn’t get any easier tonight when they travel to Folsom to lock up with Vista del Lago (3-2) for their sixth game in seven days.

“We’re just getting really good, consistent play starting with Nylah making good decisions,” EU coach Jim Agostini said. “It’s tough when you’re a scorer — when do I shoot, and when do I share? She is really learning that concept, and we’re getting some balanced scoring.”

The Lancers are get scoring production from inside and out. Veteran center Doneese Payne contributed 10 points while grabbing 16 rebounds.

Giada Rinaldo and Aliya Tipton scored eight points apiece for Tracy (1-3), which was nearly shut out in the fourth quarter but managed a point off a made free throw from Tipton.

It was still anyone’s game at halftime with EU ahead 25-20, but Tipon — the Bulldogs’ leading scorer a year ago — and the Bulldogs could not get untracked in the second half.

“Our defense is getting better and better,” Agostini said.



Manteca 6, Mountain House 1

Sienna Jones netted two goals and two assists to highlight the one-sided non-league match for the Buffaloes (4-0).

Sister Corinne Jones and Joanna Roa both contributed a goal and an assist. Alexia Alva and Layla Flannigan each added one. Jaylin Ruiz, who had an assist, and Brooklyn Cornish anchored the defense.



Lathrop 79, Linden 47

Reniel Cristosomo had the hot hand at the outset, knocking down five 3s and amassing 19 points in the first quarter alone. He finished with 25 points.

Robert Ellis contributed nine points for the Spartans (2-4), while Bobby Cotton grabbed 12 rebounds to go with four points.

Lathrop won the JV game 60-43, and the freshmen prevailed, 53-35.
