“We had 28 turnovers and 15 missed layups in the first have,” Weston Ranch head coach Jenny Bauer said. “But in the second half we only had 10 turnovers, and finished off a few layups.”
Emily Medrios nearly missed her own double-double finishing with nine points and 10 boards, while Martine Bryant had eight points and eight rebounds.
Robyn Sison finished with eight, and Nikki Taylor grabbed nine boards.

“Our sloppy play in the second and third quarters killed us.”
Eddie Andrade paced Sierra with 12, and Grant Widmer had nine.
Jerod Patton netted eight, and Edy Guzman had five.
