GARDEN VALLEY — Despite their best efforts Friday, Golden Sierra’s basketball teams had tough losses to Encina — the girls falling 41-30 and the boys 88-41 in Sierra Delta League action.

Turnovers and missed free throws hurt the Lady Grizzlies, and Encina was to quick on defense with steals. Play was aggressive with many technical fouls, all shot by Grizzly Lindsay Dorosh, who scored five points.

“It was a tough loss but good battle. Tempers were flaring for sure,” Golden Sierra coach Kevin Niles said.

The Grizzlies’ strong point was rebounding behind Becca Brown and Jenna Pendzinski. Brown had 12 rebounds and Pendzinski 11. Both chipped in seven points apiece.

Junior Emily Alexander, focused on moving quickly and getting the ball to teammates, contributed four points and scored a point.

“The whole game was the end. We played like we were about to win,” Alexander said.

Kylie Bone tallied six points and Melissa Comstock and Kaylay Murchie assisted with two points each.

In the boys game, Encina scored well under the basket though the Grizzlies did a decent job of  trying to make stops. Sam Holter carried the team with 16 points and Dakota Haddock and Nick Anaya had seven and six points, respectively. Micah Wever and Jason Yurgelevic threw in four points each and Kyle Shiba and Allan Nicholson each scored two.
