Ceres High School's junior-varsity girls basketball team lost 29-24 to Central Valley on Jan. 9 at Phil de la Porte Gymnasium.

The Bulldogs won the Western Athletic Conference crosstown rematch, 30-26, versus the host Hawks last Thursday.

"We struggled to score," Central Valley head coach Kevin Dupree said. "Everything was off. And our defense was bad. We weren't guarding anybody and we were giving up easy shots. It just wasn't a good night for us. We didn't play with a sense of urgency. We were overconfident."

Ceres High (5-1) moved into a tie for second place with the Hawks in the WAC standings.

Adryana Knights paced the Bulldogs with a game-high 10 points.

Ariel Knights and Rayohna Sagapolu added seven and five points, respectively.

Jade Moore and Kaylee Holloway both contributed four points.

Alyssa Costa and Celest Lepe both scored a team-high eight points for the Hawks.

Jadah Jackson tallied four points.

Teresa Diaz and Angelika Pe chipped in with two points each.

Ceres High led 21-20 at the end of the third quarter.

The Bulldogs outscored the Hawks 9-6 in the final period. Adryana Knights had six points.
