The Lady Dragon cagers opened their Sonoma County League schedule Wednesday, beating Healdsburg, 44-34.

Sonoma broke out of the gate taking a 13-4 lead at the end of the first quarter, and held on for a 10-point win.

“It’s a good start to league,” said Dragon Coach Jann Thorpe. “We did a nice job on the boards again tonight.”

“In the third quarter, we had a bit of a slow start and didn’t score until half-way into the quarter,” Thorpe said. “We will continue to work on being consistent with our attack to the basket and finishing inside.

Friday night, in their last tune-up before starting SCL play, the Lady Dragons traveled to Pacifica to take on the Terra Nova Tigers, and came home with a 49-24 win.
