SONOMA VALLEY 46, HEALDSBURG 13

Sonoma Valley, playing one of its best defensive games of the season, defeated host Healdsburg, 46-13, to clinch at least a tie for the Sonoma County League regular-season title.

The Dragons (10-1) will win the championship outright with a win over Elsie Allen on Thursday.

Sonoma’s defense was so intense, the Greyhounds didn’t score from the field in the first half. It was 26-3 at intermission.

“The girls wanted this one bad,” coach Sil Coccia said. “They locked down Healdsburg completely in the first half. This was one of the best, if not the best, defensive game of the season for us.”

Another bright spot for the Dragons was the rebounding of Jenny Eggers. She snared 17.

Renee O’Donnell led the offense with 10 points.

Healdsburg’s leading scorer was Hailey Roux with six.

Sonoma is 20-5 overall.
