Girls Top 20: Miners snap Del Oro's 63-game league win streak

It had to end sometime.

No. 11 Del Oro's 63-game Sierra Foothill League girls basketball winning streak came to an end tonight with a 44-42 loss to unranked Nevada Union in Loomis.

It was Del Oro's first league loss since a 34-23 defeat to Placer on Jan. 9, 2006, so long ago that the Hillgals now play in a different league.

Sydney Porter led Nevada Union (11-10, 5-0) with 18 points. Brianna Ruiz had 22 for Del Oro (12-9, 4-1).
