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.

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.
