Lady Honkers hand Colusa home loss
Colusa High's girls basketball team had its hands full with Willows' Ally Brunner on Friday, as the 5 foot, 10-inch senior scored a season-high 29 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to lead the Lady Honkers to a 58-35 win in Colusa on Friday.
Brunner sank one from long distance and went 8 of 12 from the charity stripe, as Willows (9-2, 2-0 Sacramento Valley League) led 14-6 after one period and 29-16 at the half.
With Brunner shouldering the bulk of Willows' scoring load, Baneli Lomeli and Cristina Villarruel both scored five points, with Villarruel wrapping up six rebounds. Teammates Kaylin Renfro and Lexy Weber fought for five rebounds each.
Salley Loeza's 13 points paced Colusa (4-10), with Yasmin Moreno also reaching double figures with 10 points.
Andrea Thomas found on the glass for a team-best 11 rebounds, but the RedHawks were out-boarded 42-29.
Willows played in Esparto on Tuesday, and continues their road trip in Gridley today before playing in Hamilton City on Thursday.
Colusa hosts East Nicolaus tonight and plays in Biggs on Thursday.
