FAIRFIELD — Hosea Barfield and Troy Anderson celebrated Senior Night by scoring 16 points each to help the Armijo High boys basketball team claim part of a four-way tie for the Monticello Empire League title with a 66-45 win over Vintage, Tuesday.

“At the halfway point (of league play) we were three games out,” Indians coach Carly Perales said, “and we pretty much at that point focused our energy on winning out to make the playoffs. To be sitting here on the last night sharing piece of the championship, I feel like we deserve a piece of it,”

As a league champion, Armijo (14-7, 7-3 MEL) automatically qualifies for the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.

Armijo won the JV game 53-42, getting solid play from Isaiah Stewart and D’Mario Johnson.

Wood 73, Napa 61: At Napa, the Wildcats (18-10, 7-3 MEL) claimed their portion of the league title by outscoring the Indians in each of the first three quarters.

“It’s better than not being in the four (teams tied for the title), that’s for sure,” Wood coach Mark Wudel said. “It’s just one of those things that happened this year, a weird aberration. All the things had to line up for it to work and it actually did. The kids played well enough and got things done tonight so we got part of it.”

Davis Wade led the way with 28 points, followed by Jamal Brown with 20, Cameron Moore with nine and Khalid Harrison with seven.

Vanden 73, Fairfield 55: At Fairfield, the Vikings (17-10, 6-4) dashed the SCAC championship hopes of the Falcons (14-12, 7-3), who finish a game back of Bethel, 74-72 winners over Vallejo.

“The second and third quarters we were able to get a lot of layups and finish around the basket,” said Vanden coach Micheal Holloway, whose team outscored Fairfield 41-20 over the two middle periods.

Jordan Collier led the Vikings with 25 points, while Jaimon Robinson added 14. DeMoriaye Hart-Spikes led the Falcons with 14 with Sean Gray next with nine.

Buckingham Charter 74, Sacramento Adventist 39: At Carmichael, Josh Niccum poured in 21 points and Drew Sherman added five points and seven rebounds as all 11 players scored for the Knights (18-5, 8-2), who finished second in the Sacramento Metro Athletic League.

Vanden, Armijo finish unbeaten league seasons

FAIRFIELD — Adrianna Jones scored 15 points, all on 3-pointers, as the Vanden High girls basketball team outscored Fairfield 44-10 in the first half en route to a 76-22 win that secured an unbeaten Solano County Athletic Conference campaign, Tuesday.

“We’re proud, obviously, proud of the girls and what they’re trying to accomplish,” Vanden coach Allison Johnson said. “Now we begin the third part of our season (with the playoffs). The girls are working hard trying to put all the components into place.”

Mariah Williams added 10 points for the Vikings, while Alexis Hines led Fairfield with 11.

Vanden cruised to a 53-21 win in the JV games as Bria Barnette led the SCAC champion Vikings (18-7, 10-0) with 14 points, while Monet Lewis and Brittney Livingston each added 10.

Armijo 57, Vintage 31: At Napa, the Indians (21-6, 10-0) ran their MEL winning streak to 30 games, completing their third straight unbeaten league campaign.

Marshanique Hall and Melaya Gaines each scored 13 points to lead the Indians.

Armijo won the JV game 51-34 with the Indians (17-7, 7-3 MEL) getting 18 points from Azanae Lewis.

Napa 63, Wood 49: At Vacaville, the Wildcats (8-19, 1-9 MEL) were outscored 24-6 in the third quarter and never recovered. Reana Hardin closed her career with a team-high 21 points.

Napa won the JV game 49-33 with the Wildcats (4-23, 0-10 MEL) being led by Donjanaye Washington with 15 points and Aira Shankles with nine.

Vacaville 72, Rodriguez 63: At Fairfield, a tough season came to a close for the Mustangs (13-14, 5-5 MEL) Tuesday.

Leading 22-6 after a quarter, things fell apart for Rodriguez in the 27-9 second quarter and the Mustangs never recovered.

Jophiea Irvin led Rodriguez with 24 points and Raeona Ford added 11.

Rodriguez coach Lou Collier said the season didn’t go the way he though it could have.

“We came into it thinking we were going to do a lot better this season, but we hit adversity early and then midway through we hit some more,” Collier said. “But the girls who were left – they did play hard.”

Sometimes it was just bad luck.

“The tall just didn’t go in the bucket at times,” Collier said. “(Looking ahead) this team could be one that could be reckoned with if we play good, team basketball. I’m proud of the girls.”

The Falcons (2-1) erased a 1-0 deficit by pushing across five runs in the bottom of the third inning.

Solano is at San Jose for a doubleheader on Thursday.
