Merced girls hold off late Rodriguez run for playoff win

In the past, Merced’s Oleachea Bowers may have passed up a shot in key moments of the game. The Bears senior didn’t lack the confidence on Friday. Not in the playoffs. Boweres scored the Bears’ first nine points of the fourth quarter to help No. 16 seed Merced hold off No. 17 Rodriguez’s late charge in a 67-57 win in a Sac-Joaquin Section Division 1 outbracket game at Clemons Court.
