FAIRFIELD — It was the tale of two quarters.

The Fairfield High boys basketball team went on a 15-0 run in the third quarter and used the surge to open Solano County Athletic Conference play with a 67-58 win over Vallejo at Ronald D. Thompson Gymnasium, Thursday.

The Falcons (15-3) looked as if they were on the way to an easy victory with a 22-9 lead after the first quarter, hitting 8 of 14 (57 percent) of their shots, 4 of 6 (66 percent) from beyond the arc.

The Falcons also won the turnover battle, committing only three to Vallejo’s eight.

Demoriaye Hart-Spikes had seven points – all in the first four minutes of the period.

There was a put-back dunk by Javon Adams after a Robert Harrison missed layup with 35 seconds left and a corner 3-pointer from John Jones – leaving 14 seconds left and Vallejo to do nothing but put up a prayer before the buzzer.

“This team is really good in chaos,” Fairfield coach Eddie Wilson said. “When things break down, we have so many guys that can dribble it and pass it. We always seem to find the right shots. That’s them understudying the game.”

The Apaches (9-7) were not done, though, as they were able to hold the Falcons to 13 second-quarter points to their 19, clawing back to a 35-28 deficit.

Devin Bracy had six of his 18 points in the second, including a dunk.

In the second and fourth periods, Vallejo outscored Fairfield 38-23 and were 15 of 36 from the field while the Falcons were 10 of 24 in the same quarters.

“We didn’t take care of the ball,” Wilson said. “We turned it over a bit too much. We still have spurts where we are too aggressive in times where we don’t need to be. It was us turning it over and it was us allowing them to get second and third shots.”

With 5 minutes to go in third quarter, Vallejo found itself within two points at 37-35 after a Jason Dickson free throw. That was the closest the Apaches would get to the Falcons the rest of the game.

After starting the third 1 of 6 from the floor, Fairfield made six straight baskets, going on a 15-0 run over 3 minutes. Sean Gray had 10 of his 13 points in that span, including a pair of 3-pointers.

The Falcons outscored Vallejo 22-11 in the third period, essentially sealing the victory.

Hart-Spikes led all scorers for Fairfield with 20 points, while Adams had 12.

In JV action, the Falcons took a 55-49 victory with Cameron Ross-Reed leading the way with 14 points with G’angelo Jenkins adding 10.

Fairfield travels to American Canyon, Tuesday.
