Lady Grizzlies battle against Rams

GARDEN VALLEY — Host Golden Sierra engaged in two close Sierra Delta League boys and girls basketball games with Rio Vista Wednesday — the boys won the nightcap 54-51 after the girls dropped the opener 33-30.

In the boys contest, the Grizzlies closed out with crucial free throws from Peter Biersteker. Prior to Biersteker’s clutch shots, the visiting Rams forced Golden Sierra (4-2 in the Sierra Delta League, 12-8) into taking difficult shots.

“We escaped,” Golden Sierra head coach Al Toney said. “We didn’t play well at all. Winning went to their heads. Winning these games are good but now teams like Vacaville Christian and Highlands will be hunting to take them (us) down. We will need to step it up.”

In the first quarter, the Grizzlies led 13-4. Golden Sierra expanded its lead to 23-18 at halftime.

Even though it was close, the Grizzlies took it from the Rams to add another win to the list. Micah Wever led the team with a double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Jason Yurgelevic threw in 16 points and Peter Biersteker contributed eight points, 12 rebounds, seven assists, and five steals. Sam Holter and Nick White both helped out with six and five points, respectively.

Going into tonight’s game at Bradshaw Christian, Golden Sierra is in third place in league. The top four teams advance to the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.

Lindsay Dorosh lead Golden Sierra (1-5, 4-14) with seven points. Jenna Pendzinski followed with five points and Janna Zogg and Amanda Troiano scored four points each. Becca Brown had three points, and Emily Alexander, Maylene Coetzee and Kaylay Murchie chipped in two points apiece.
