Sierra High freshman hurler Allison Walljasper tossed a one-hitter Tuesday to lead her team past host Weston Ranch, 12-0.

More importantly, the Timberwolves (10-1, 15-1-1) stayed atop of the Valley Oak League standings with a one-game advantage.

Walljasper had a no-no through four innings before allowing a lead-off single in the fifth.

“We played a great game overall, from top to bottom,” said Sierra coach Nick Olmo.

His team displayed some hot-hitting early on, with sophomore Sommer Wilson coming up with three-run blast in the first. She enjoyed a 3-for-3 outing at the plate with three RBI and a walk.

The Timberwolves made it 6-0 in the second inning thanks to sophomore Ivana Hughes’ three-run home run. She collected a pair of hits including a double and four RBI.

In addition, Daylynn Penner was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI for Sierra.

“The girls came out hitting and also played solid defense,” added Olmo, whose team will face Del Oro Friday in the first round of the Nor Cal tournament at the Tracy Complex.

With the loss, Weston Ranch dropped to 3-8, 6-14.

Oakdale 11, East Union 4

The Mustangs (9-2, 15-4-1) maintained their second-place hold in the VOL with the win over the visiting Lancers.

East Union (5-5, 8-9-1) jumped out to a 3-0 first-inning lead, with Jillian Goulart and Cassie Waggy setting the table with a lead-off single and walk, respectively.

Brittany Lamar, who was 3-for-4 at the plate, hit a towering single off the fence to plate Goulart. Pitcher Kelsey Emerson and Salina Tiscareno both had RBI singles.

Oakdale answered back in the bottom half of the frame thanks to three walks to ignite the four-run rally.

Mustangs put the game away in the fourth inning by scoring four more runs.

East Union had a chance in the fifth inning, loading the bases with no outs only to come up empty.
