VALLEJO — Denise Johnson scored 11 points and three other Falcons scored in double figures to help the Fairfield High girls basketball team to its first Solano County Athletic Conference victory of the season, trouncing host Vallejo 56-38.

Alexis Hines, Shawntanea Moten and Casara Vaughn each scored 10 as the Falcons (4-17, 1-4 SCAC) spread the ball around.

Hines and Johnson each sank a 3-pointer to help Fairfield snap a four-game losing streak.

The Falcons return to action Thursday when they host Vanden.

Armijo 55, Vintage 32: At Fairfield, Justice Robinson-Kroon scored 13 points toe lead the MEL-leading Indians (15-6, 4-0 MEL).

Only in the fourth quarter did the Crushers score in double figures, while the Indians did so in every quarter, leading 33-16 at the break.

Marshanique Hall added 12 points and Sade Ware scored 10 for Armijo.

In JV action, the Indians (13-5, 3-1 MEL) edged the Crushers 35-30 behind 14 points from Azanae Lewis and 11 from Destiny Blueford.

Armijo heads across town to face Rodriguez on Friday.

Napa 52, Wood 40: At Napa, the Wildcats (8-13, 1-3 MEL) fell behind 17-4 after a quarter and that was it.

Reana Hardin led Wood with 14 points and Selena Lopez added 12.

Wood lost the JV game 56-27.

Ashanti Randle led the Wildcats (4-17, 0-4 MEL) with 17 points.

Donjanaye Washington added six and Brittany Schuenemann had four.

The Wildcats host rival Vacaville on Friday.

Rodriguez 51, Vacaville 36: At Vacaville, the Mustangs (11-10, 3-1 MEL) outscored the Bulldogs 15-3 in the fourth quarter to break open a close game.

“Holding them to three points (all on free throws) in the fourth quarter was really the key, the defense really stepped up,” Rodriguez coach Lou Collier said.

Jophiea Irvin paced the Mustangs with 19 points, while Briana Hayles added nine.

Rodriguez entertains Armijo on Friday.

Vanden 67, American Canyon 22: At American Canyon, the Vikings (18-3, 4-0 SCAC) allowed just one free throw the entire night in cruising past the Wolves

“One thing that was impressive to me was to hold a team, that is much improved, to one free throw,” Vanden coach Allison Johnson said. “We moved our feet and not sending a team to the foul line, I’m proud of that.”

Toni Taylor led the Vikings with 14 points, followed by Lanissa Belk with 12 and Mariah Williams with 10.

Vanden’s JV team won a thriller as Brooklin Crawford drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to pull out a 36-35 victory. The Vikings (12-7, 4-0 SCAC) got 10 points from Bria Barnette, nine from Crawford and seven from Kaily McDaniel.

The Vikings are at Fairfield on Thursday.
