It has been quite some time since the Weston Ranch High sophomore girls basketball team have been on the short-end of a basketball game, and that fact didn’t change Thursday when the Cougars remained perfect in Valley Oak League play with a 50-40 win over Lathrop High.

Weston Ranch (4-0 VOL, 11-2 overall) continued an impressive season-long run, holding a double-digit lead over the Spartans for the majority of the contest. Aljanea Brown led the way for Weston Ranch, scoring 14 points. Teammate Candise Griffin made her presence felt with 10 points and eight rebounds.

Janet Visaya’s game-high 15 points led Lathrop.

Sierra 37, Kimball 11

The Timberwolves had a relatively easy time stopping the host Jaguars, beating Kimball by more than 20 points Thursday.

Allison Walljasper led Sierra with a double double, posting 11 points and 10 rebounds in the win. Celine Barber chipped in six points and swiped five steals, while Brittni Bernstine also snatched five steals.

East Union 40, Oakdale 24

The Lancers pulled away in what looked like a close contest, outscoring the Mustangs 27-12 in the second half for the VOL win.

“We started playing defense, but in the first half we did not play any defense,’ Lancer head coach Richard Posz said. “We woke up in the second half and put some pressure on them and made some shots.”

Jess Campa led the Lancers with 11 points, while Alex Scopas, Marina Salyer and Alyssa Gonigan all finished with seven.

East Union (4-0, 10-2) will try and remain perfect in VOL play when they travel to Sonora Tuesday to take on the Wildcats.
