Sonora women’s basketball remains undefeated with win over shorthanded Woodbridge – Orange County Register


IRVINE — Larissa Robles scored 25 points with five assists to lead the Sonora women’s basketball team to a 59-46 victory over Woodbridge in a nonleague game Friday night at Woodbridge High.

Sonora (8-0), ranked No. 8 in Orange County, will face Woodbridge (5-3) again on Monday in the Sunny Hills Showcase.

“We had to play good defence,” Robles said. “We had to stay calm in attack and take care of the ball. We had to adjust our screens to get by with a lot of threes. I had to push myself tonight. I didn’t want to lose this game. »

Woodbridge was without star forward Lexi Gadea, who was out with the flu. His status for Monday’s rematch is questionable.

Without Gadea, Hana Watanabe took charge and led the Warriors with 24 points.

Sonora, who led by eight at halftime, took control in the second half, leading as far as 22 points thanks to their defensive play.

“We’re really proud of our kids for their defensive effort,” Sonora coach Melissa Barajas said. “We know Woodbridge is a very tough team and they have some very good shooters. Teagan Burrus can attack and she’s great on the boards. She was a priority for us as well as stopping Hana Watanabe. I think we did a very good job in the second half.

Burrus had five points and seven rebounds for Woodbridge while Milan Heisdorf added five points and six rebounds.

Maddie Yasui scored six points for the Warriors.
