GARDEN VALLEY — Grizzly fans piled into the bleachers Friday to watch the boys and girls varsity basketball teams defend the den against San Juan in Sierra Delta League matchups.

The Grizzly girls lost to the Spartans 53-31, putting up a hard fight that wasn’t enough though they pulled it together in the end with aggressive play and ball movement.

Lindsay Dorosh carried the team with eight points followed by Kaylay Murchie with six and Jenna Pendzinski and Emily Alexander chipping in with five and four points, respectively. Amanda Troiano, Lexi Chiaratti, Kristine Mendoza and Rebecca Brown each tallied two points apiece.

The boys kept fans on their toes with an intense, upbeat game that resulted in a 63-42 victory. Golden Sierra was led by Nick White with 16 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks.

Coach Al Toney said the key for Friday’s win was “Untimely outside shots were minimized, which was good, and we were strong on defense, boxing out and rebounding.”

The boys had crisp passes which were key to putting the ball away. Peter Biersteker had six assists in distributing the ball to go along with nine rebounds.

“Our inside offense was done very well. We had a lot of nice inside buckets,” Jason Yurgelevic said.

Twice Yugelevic, with 13 points, had steals and breakaway layins while White’s dunk on Micah Wever’s pass brought the crowd to its feet. Wever had 15 points and eight rebounds while Kyle Shiba added seven points.

Sam Holter played an aggressive game with two, three-point shots for six points while Dakota Haddock and Nick Anaya both pitched in three points and Allan Nicholson added one.
