Ponderosa 52, St. Francis 49 — The Lady Bruins picked up a hugh Delta River League win with Tuesday’s road victory, their first-ever against the Troubadours as Ashley Beck sank four free throws in the last minute to hold off St. Francis. Ponderosa raced out to a 17-5 first-quarter lead and led 26-17 at the half after an 8-0 run. The Bruins outscored the Troubadours in the fourth after St. Francis had tied the score after three quarters. Danielle Craft led the Bruins with 18 points and 11 rebounds; Beck scored 14 with 7 rebounds; Sophia George added eight points and pulled in 11 boards; Brooke Sinner scored five points; Maddie Clayton had 2 points, 5 rebounds and six steals; and Stacey Godwin had 2 points and 2 rebounds. Overall, Ponderosa made 10 of its 11 free throws.
“The girls came out ready to play from the first minute and believed they could beat St. Francis and it showed through the whole game,” Bruin coach Noel O’Donnell said.

Oak Ridge 66, Pleasant Grove 40 — The Trojans put Tuesday’s home win away with a 28-15 third quarter to remain undefeated in the Delta River League.

Union Mine 39, Liberty Ranch 43 — Yielding uncontested shots and lack of rebounding allowed the Hawks to take advantage — with second-chance shots and free throws — to defeat the host Diamondbacks Wednesday in Sierra Valley Conference play. Madison Aliff led Union Mine with 11 points; Kimee Mueller had 10; and Sonya Watson, 8.

Aaron Line led El Dorado with 20 points; Daniel Vance added 11; Justin Morrison had 10; Matt Smith, 7; and Sean Gregg, Michael Weston and Tommy Williams each scored 6.

Golden Sierra 55, Encina 80 — Despite a season-high 16 points from sharp-shooter Jason Yurgelevic, the Grizzlies couldn’t keep pace with the host Bulldogs in Wednesday’s Sierra Delta League game. Encina outscored Golden Sierra 56-18 in the first and third quarters. Jason Boyle added 10 points for the Griz.
