Much on the line for area girls teams

The regular basketball season ends in exciting and important fashion for the Petaluma and Casa Grande high school girls basketball teams Thursday night.

Petaluma's T-Girls have already clinched a share of the Sonoma County League championship going into their home court game against Sonoma Valley. What is at stake for the Petalumans is a perfect SCL season and total possession of the league title.

Petaluma goes into the game with a 21-4 record and are an 11-0 mark against league opponents. Sonoma Valley has a less glittering 13-10 overall mark, but has only one league loss (with a game pending against Analy) going into its visit to Petaluma.

Sonoma Valley's only SCL loss was 56-42 to the T-Girls in a contest played in Sonoma.

A concern for Petaluma going into Thursday's game is Sonoma senior point guard Kendall Ashe, who hit four 3-pointers and scored 18 points in the first meeting between the two longtime rivals.

Sonoma, for its part, will have to find a way to defense Petaluma's 6-foot, 2-inch post player Allison Scranton. The sophomore scored 18 in Petaluma's win at Sonoma and has been a dominant player ever since.

Meanwhile, Casa Grande's Lady Gauchos conclude their first North Bay League season at home Thursday night against Montgomery.

Going into a Tuesday night game at Santa Rosa, Casa Grande stood at 14-10 overall and 8-4 in league play.

Heading into a Tuesday home game against Maria Carrillo, the Lady Vikings were 10-2 in league and 19-5 overall.

Montgomery handed the Lady Gauchos their worst loss of the season in an earlier game at Montgomery, dominating Casa, 52-24.
