The Lady Warriors nearly held Cal City scoreless in the first half in an eventual 65-5 win last Tuesday in their home opener.

Tehachapi (11-4) built a 34-0 lead in the first half, with Cal City recording their first points with a basket at the 1:30 mark before halftime.

Laney Ricker was the leading scorer for the Lady Warriors with 13 points (three steals), followed by Dani Peacon with 12 points (six steals) and Alyssa Garcia with 10 points (seven rebounds, four steals).

Brooke Boyd also had a strong game with eight rebounds and six points and Daisy Moran had seven points, five steals and four rebounds. Kelsey Vance was also the second leading rebounder on the night with seven boards, also chipping in with four points and three assists.

Shelby Ricker also had five points, five steals and four assists, Lexi Garrett had five steals, four rebounds and three points and Brandi Davidson had seven steals, four points and three assists.

Leja Jakstaite also had three rebounds and two points and Noemi Lorenz had an assist.

Before starting their league schedule, Tehachapi will have a rematch of their first game of the year against Golden Valley this Thursday in Bakersfield, starting at 4 p.m. The contest is a make-up game for the championship of the Golden Valley Invitational, which was postponed due to inclement weather last month. Tehachapi also had an away game against Frontier this past Tuesday and highlights of that game will be available next week.

The league season will start next Tuesday at East Bakersfield, with the varsity scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m., right after the jayvee (5:15 p.m.) and frosh-soph (4 p.m.) games.
