Vikings sail past Jaguars in SCAC opener

VALLEJO — The Vanden High girls basketball team began its quest for a 13th straight league title by using a 23-point second quarter to roll past Bethel 64-33 in their Solano County Athletic Conference opener on Thursday.

“That was a pretty explosive second quarter,” Vikings coach Allison Johnson said. “We had eight diff people score in that quarter, it was a little bit of everybody. . . . We just capitalized on opportunities our defense created and were able to finish.

Chantell Greer scored 13 points and Kayla Blair 10 to lead Vanden (13-3).

Vanden also won big in the JV game, prevailing 57-20 as the Vikings (9-7, 1-0) got 18 from Brittney Livingston and 10 each from Krystal Gonzalez and Brooklin Crawford.

“Obviously, the second quarter helped us, we outscored them by 10 (22-12) to take the lead for good,” Wood coach Bob Fernandez said. “We turned up the defensive pressure and Hardin got hot. She had 12 of  her 29 and hit two 3s. That stretch kick-started us.”

Tichina Crocker was next with eight for the Wildcats.

Wood dropped the JV game 33-22 with the Wildcats (4-14) getting eight points from Donjanaye Washington and six from Ashanti Randle.

Wood hits the road to play at Armijo on Tuesday.
