The Mountain House Girls Varsity squad upset #3 seed Sonora High 64-63 in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section 1st round playoff game 64-63 on Tuesday February 12, 2019.

This was an up and down game with both squads answering the opponents run. The Mustangs led 38-34 at halftime on a 5-0 run led junior Katelyn Larson’s key corner 3. The first half highlight was junior Kayleen Ramos taking a charge that forced her out for the rest of the half. But that charge fired up the Mustangs!

In the second half, Sonora went on a 10-0 run, but give Mountain House credit for withstanding their run and going on a 8-0 run of their own to take 46-44 lead midway through the third. It was back and forth all game that came down to the last 11.9 seconds of the game when Sonora took possession on a Mustang turnover.

Give Mountain House credit, they played tough defense with Sonora missing a midrange. Sophomore Maya Gorman secures the defensive rebound as time ran out.

Junior Natalia Moore-Raygoza led the scoring with 24 points on eight 3 pointers. Senior Andrea Garcia hit 22 points consistently fighting through double teams. Katelyn Larson hit 9 pts off the bench. Everyone played and contributed to the win with tough defense and hard work and effort.

Mountain House now prepares for Round 2 of the playoffs against El Dorado High in Placerville on Thursday February 14, 2019.

Congratulations to the Lady Mustangs!
