Local Roundup: Lady Bruins blast Mavs on the road

Bear River’s Lady Bruins blitzed host Mesa Verde from the opening tip Friday night, which led to a 56-23 Pioneer Valley League victory.

Bear River took a 21-2 lead over the Mavericks by the end of the first quarter.

Kyanne Hagar, a junior, led the Lady Bruins with a career high 13 points and seven rebounds. “She played well, did a good job and got to the line a lot,” said Jeff Bickmore.

Juniors Aubrey Horne and Lindsey Harter had 10 and eight points, respectively. Cassidy Best, also a junior, added five assists and four steals.

Bear River (19-5 overall, 8-2 PVL) hosts Whitney in the final regular season game Wednesday.

The Lady Falcons fought off a strong challenge from host Woodland Christian Friday night, thanks largely to a 20-point night from Maggie Aubuchon.

Molly Huusfeldt had 11 points, while Sterling Marich added 10.

“It was a hard-fought battle,” FLC coach Linda Clough said. “The officiating was pretty tough. They let it be a physical game. But I’m very proud of our team.”

FLC (14-9, 6-5) travels to Foresthill Dec. 19.

JV: Del Oro 58, Nevada Union 54

The last time NU and Del Oro crossed paths at the JV level, the Miners handed the Golden Eagles their first SFL loss at Ali Gymnasium. This time around Del Oro evened the series.

“We lost two games by six points this week,” NU coach Craig Strohm said. “That’s a tough week. But that’s the SFL right now. Everybody is able to beat each other.”

Garrett Strohm led NU with 16 points and Conner Fuller had 15. Christian Cortez scored eight points, while Mikey Cordova and Josiah Paye five.

NU slipped to 12-12 overall and 4-6 in league.

Frosh: Del Oro 54, Nevada Union 47

Nevada Union’s freshmen fell for the first time in SFL action Friday, after trailing 36-23 at halftime.

“In the second half we came out and outplayed them in every aspect of the game, but couldn’t buy a bucket,” NU coach Dallas Wivholm.

The Miners were held to a season-low 28 percent from the floor, Wivholm said.

Cody Gardner led NU with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Jason Mickell scored 11. Sean Zuccaro scored seven and Jared Cook five.

NU stands at 21-3 on the season and 9-1 in the SFL, while Del Oro improved to 8-2 in league. NU’s frosh can claim the SFL title with wins over Woodcreek on Wednesday and Oakmont on Dec. 19.
