Steady Eddies: Guzman, Andrade lift TWolves over Lathrop
Placeholder Image
LATHROP — They may spell their names differently, but Saturday at Lathrop High, Edy Guzman and Eddie Andrade appeared awfully similar in one important category: Scoring the basketball.

Guzman (16 points) and Andrade (13 points) led Sierra to a 59-39 blowout of Lathrop.

Maurico Roberts added nine and Grant Widmer chipped in six.

“We were able to jump out to a good lead in the first half, which allowed us to get everyone good minutes,” Sierra head coach Justin Muschott said. “We bothered them with our press a bit and the guys did a good job with their opportunities. We had good balance, with eight of nine players scoring.”

The T’Wolves (6-4 Valley Oak League, 9-10 overall) tackle Sonora next.

Tip is scheduled for 5 p.m. at Sierra High.

Jasmine Elder scored 16 and Erica Sanchez added 12, but it wouldn’t be enough as Arsenio Costa’s crew continued to cruise.

Krystal Ruiz added eight for the Spartans (6-5 VOL, 10-11 overall).

“We were only down two at the half,” Lathrop head coach Ed Fang said. “But they came out on fire in the third. We had a few ball-handling errors, but we never gave up.

“I’m proud of the way we fought.”

Lathrop laces them up Monday when East Union comes calling.
