Fairfield boys hang on to edge Logan at De La Salle tournament

CONCORD — The Fairfield High boys basketball team won its second straight game Thursday with a 50-47 victory over James Logan of Union City at the Chris Von Toure Spartan Classic at De La Salle.

The Falcons (3-2) led 38-36 after three quarters and outscored the Colts 12-11 over the final eight minutes to seal the win.

DeMoriaye Hart-Spikes led Fairfield with 21 points – his second 20-point game in two games he’s played this season. John Jones added 17, with nine coming off 3-pointers.

Fairfield plays again today at 8 p.m., against the winner of Thursday’s De La Salle-Richmond game.

Armijo 55, Vallejo 48: At  the Vacaville tournament, the Indians (5-0) led by 10 at the break before the Apaches closed the gap in the waning minutes of the game.

“It was a bit of a grind. We didn’t play our best basketball tonight, but we found a way to hang on to the lead there at the end,” said Armijo coach Carly Perales. “We were up 10 at the half and pushed it to 12 early in the third. Then late the in the game, they made a push cut it to three.”

Perales said a big 3-point play by Davontre Thompson ran the lead to six points and forced Vallejo to start fouling.

Armijo will face the Vanden-Davis winner at 8 p.m. today.

St. Joseph 53, Rodriguez 42: At Alameda, the Mustangs (2-4) got nine points from Johnny Shelton, but that wasn’t enough offense to keep up with the Pilots.

Still, coach Nate Rankin saw improvement.

“The guys played hard. I saw things tonight that were really positive,” Rankin said.

Rodriguez plays the loser of Thursday’s Encinal-University game today.

McQueen 71, Wood 64: At Grass Valley in the Nevada Union Invitational Tournament, the Wildcats (3-2) were outscored 11-4 in the final two minutes, giving up 31 points to Kody Eckert, including eight 3-pointers, and 21 to Bryce Harnack.

“They did a great job with offensive driving and kicking,” Wildcats coach Mark Wudel said. “They got to the point where they always found the open man. The other guys who didn’t shoot kept passing until they found one of the two guys (Eckert or Harnack) that did.”

Wood, which got 13 points from Jeremiah Burks and 12 from Jamal Brown, plays the loser of Thursday’s West Campus-River Valley game today at 3:30 p.m.

Vacaville Christian 39, Colusa 36: at Maxwell Tournament, the Falcons (1-0) got their season off to a good start with a win in a low-scoring affair.

Colusa led 18-7 at the break before Vacaville Christian put up 32 second-half points.

The Falcons face Pierce today at 7 p.m.

Vanden JV 73, Vintage 46: At Vacaville, the Vikings (3-3) blasted the Crushers behind 24 points from D’Marre Walker.

Javin White added 17 point, Rashad Fisher had 14 and Tony Perry scored 12.

Vanden plays again today against the winner of Thursday’s Wood-Dixon game.

Rodriguez JV 63, Fairfield 42: At  Fairfield on Tuesday, Nique Shelton scored 12 points and Courtlund McLean 11, while Elijah Williams pulled down 17 rebounds to lead the Mustangs to victory.

Balanced Vikings rip Mira Loma 106-30

ANTELOPE — Mariah Williams scored 18 points to lead five players for the Vanden High girls basketball team in double figures as the Vikings mauled Mira Loma 106-30 in the first round of the Claude Brock Invitational at Center High on Thursday.

The Vikings (3-0) outscored the Matadors 66-12 over the second and third quarters as Aleseana Whitney netted 16 points, Lanissa Belk 14, Kiara Beacham 13 and Kayla Blair 10.

With her team up 54-14 at the half, Vikings coach Allison Johnson said the opposing coach requested that Vanden keep up its press in the second half so that his team could get some practice against such pressure.

“It was good communication, a good productive night for both teams,” Johnson said.

The Vikings play either Wood or Antelope today at 6:30 p.m.

St. Mary’s 93, Vanden 52: At Sacramento in the Kennedy Tournament, Monet Lewis scored 11 and Krystal Gonzalez nine in a losing cause for the Vikings (2-3). They play Casa Robles today at 5 p.m.
