VALLEJO — Jumping to a 21-3 lead in the first quarter wasn’t enough as the Fairfield HIgh boys basketball team saw Bethel come roaring back for a 72-63 on Friday night that left both teams tied for first place in the Solano County Athletic Conference with one game remaining.

“We started well and then relaxed and we couldn’t contain the basketball,” Falcons coach Tony Bryant said. “They were able to penetrate and get second shots. We didn’t close hard so they had a lot of easy 3-balls. That was the difference in the game.”

DeMoriaye Hart-Spikes led Fairfield (14-11, 7-2 SCAC) with 24 points, while Sean Gray added 16.

Fairfield closes the regular season by hosting Vanden, while Bethel (13-13, 7-2 SCAC) is at Vallejo, Tuesday.

Wood 61, Vacaville 49: At Wood, the Wildcats (18-10, 6-3 MEL) outscored the Bulldogs 25-3 in the fourth quarter to overcome a big deficit to pick up a key MEL win.

Wood got a game-high 24 points from Davis Wade, the only Wood player to score in double figures.

Dakota Dixon led the Bulldogs (11-15, 6-3 MEL) with 13 points, with Jake Pearlstein adding 10 points.

Vacaville Christian 55, Rio Vista 10: At Vacaville, the Falcons (7-11, 5-6) were led by Austin Barker’s 15 point and Andrew Grabowski’s 10 points.

Buckingham is back in action Tuesday at Sacramento Adventist.

Defense, balance propel Solano past LMC

ROCKVILLE — The Solano Community College women’s basketball shrugged off an early 4-0 deficit with solid defense and balanced scoring in cruising to a 68-44 Bay Valley Conference victory over Los Medanos on Friday.

“We played intelligent defense, we had good ball pressure,” Falcons coach Matt Borchert said. ” They have a 6-2 center that’s pretty tough, so ball pressure is the key. We did that pretty well. We harassed their guards, which helped us get some easy baskets.”

Taylor Hamilton led Solano (12-10, 9-3 BVC) with 13 points, followed by Ariella Harper and Ariel Clay with nine, and Kristina Kountouris and Necole White with eight.

The Falcons return to action on Wednesday at College of Marin at 5:30 p.m.

ROCKVILLE — The Solano Community College men’s basketball team tried its best to cough up a 24-point halftime lead but instead came away with an impressive 83-71 victory over Los Medanos in Bay Valley Conference play on Friday.

Mike McKinney and Lequan Gomes led a balanced attack for the Falcons (10-14, 5-8 BVC) with 14 points each, followed by James Givens and Jamarae Moss with 13, Mike Stockton with 11 and Corey Doran with 10.

Solano travels to College of Marin on Wednesday.
