GARDEN VALLEY — Making 5-of-6 free throws in the final minute, visiting Vacaville Christian held off a furious Golden Sierra rally to defeat the host Grizzlies 53-46 in Sierra Delta League boys basketball action Friday night.

Earlier, Sierra Monroe’s 10 points led the Grizzly girls to an easy 44-17 win over the Falcons in the first game of the varsity doubleheader contact. Monroe bucketed seven of her points in the second quarter as Golden Sierra overcame a slow start to lead 22-6 at the half.

As the Lady Falcons struggled offensively, Becca Brown’s six, third-quarter points and Stephanie Schrader’s three-pointer had the Griz up 24 entering the fourth. Kylie Bone netted a trey and buckets from Alix Nordby and Lindsay Dorosh with free throws from Schrader and Nicole Beck closed out the scoring to improve the Grizzlies to 3-5 in league.

In the boys game, Vacaville took a 10-point lead to the final quarter. Golden Sierra chipped away behind Peter Biersteker and Matt Smith who accounted for all but one of the Grizzlies’ 16 fourth-quarter points. Biersteker scored 11 of his 13 in the final eight minutes, including a trio of threes as the Griz twice inched within three.

Smith, who led the Grizzlies with 18 points, scored all seven Golden Sierra points in the opening quarter. The visitors stuck to their starters almost the whole way and relied on Luke Barker (20 points) who hurt the Griz inside the key. Threes from Smith and Jason Yurgelevic kept the Grizzlies close.

Bryson Campbell’s hit a baseline jumper at the halftime buzzer and opened the third on a cut to the hoop. At the end of the quarter, the Grizzlies fell victim to a key five-point swing: missing a layup on one end and surrendering a 3-point play on the other.

Golden Sierra trailed by a dozen early in the fourth before mounting its comeback.
