The Lancers gift-wrapped a late holiday present in not having their 6-2 and 5-10 post players with them on their Garden Valley trek but the Grizzlies couldn’t take advantage.
Turnovers, to the tune of 18 in the first half, 23 in the second, killed Golden Sierra whose suspect ball-handling led to numerous Cordova steals near midcourt.
The Lancers were at their best in the fourth, turning six consecutive Griz miscues into transition baskets.
Complicating matters, Golden Sierra lost its best energy player, Becca Brown, to a hard fall midway into the third quarter, never to return.
The Grizzlies scored just five, second-half points. They trailed by 10 points after the first quarter, 17 at the half and 27 after three.
Janna Zogg had four points to lead Golden Sierra; Kylie Bone had three; Lindsay Dorosh, Brown, Maylene Coetzee and Kaylay Murchie had a bucket each while Kristine Mendoza added a free throw.
