Woodcreek High School’s 9-6 victory over Granite Bay on Friday, coupled with Roseville’s 4-2 win over Rocklin, vaulted the Timberwolves into first place in the Sierra Foothill League softball standings.

The Timberwolves (13-6 overall, 7-1 SFL) scored six runs in the top of the second inning against the Grizzlies (6-14, 2-6) to overcome six errors.

Frankie Orlando went 3 for 4 and drove in three runs for Woodcreek. Jessica Nogosek went 2 for 3 with a double and scored two runs, drove in one and stole a base. Jenna Curtan and Christal Vierra each scored two runs.

Freshman Jacy Boles, getting another heavy dose of work, allowed two runs and three hits in relief of senior Amanda Horbasch, who allowed two earned runs and six hits in two innings.

Woodcreek moved a half-game in front of Rocklin (14-2, 6-1), which suffered its first SFL loss as Roseville senior Kayla Fields scattered six hits, a walk and a hit batter in a complete game. She struck out nine, and both runs were unearned.

Fields also led the Tigers (13-6-1, 5-3) at the plate with a solo home run and a sacrifice fly. Junior Taylor Brewster-McDowell and sophomore Naomi Monahan drove in a run each for Roseville.

Vacaville-Buckingham Charter 13, Valley Christian Academy 7 — Grace Magni went 3 for 4 with a triple and double, and Katie Urban had a triple and a single, but the Lady Lions (3-2, 1-1 Sacramento Metro Athletic League) couldn’t stop the Knights (5-2-1, 3-0) after scoring five runs in the top of the first.
