FAIRFIELD — Sometimes a crosstown rivalry brings out the best in a team.

The Armijo High girls basketball team proved to be too much for Fairfield as the Indians blew the Falcons away 63-21 at Ronald D. Thompson Gymnasium, Friday.

Armijo (5-10) achieved its highest point total of the season and also enjoyed its biggest margin of victory of the season, keeping the Falcons (1-14) scoreless in the first period.

Fairfield missed its first seven shots of the period, finding itself down 10-0 as coach Mike Gilliard called a timeout with 2 minutes 29 seconds left.

“Transitioning and getting back on defense,” GIlliard said of the Falcons’ biggest challenges. “I have a lot of young players not understanding the game. We didn’t really get into our offense at all.”

The Falcons were 0-for-10 from the field and did not get to the free-throw line.

Seven of the 10 points for the Indians came from junior Passion Ware, who capped off her run a three-point play under the rim.

Ware grabbed four of the Indians’ nine rebounds in the period. She had a double-double by the third quarter, ending the game with 15 points and 17 boards.

“It was a good win,” Armijo coach Lawrence Trigg said. “Lots of assists, lots of steals. They rebounded well and they shot well.”

The Indians continued shooting the ball well as they were 8-of-16 from the field in the second quarter, scoring 15 points to put them up 29-6 at the half.

In a 2-minute span Armijo made four straight shots – two of which were mid-range jumpers and one which would have been a 3-pointer but Destiny Blueford’s foot was just on the line.

Blueford had six points in the quarter and ended the game with nine.

The Falcons’ first points came in the second quarter on an inside basket from RJ Johnson. She had four points in the game and her effort was notable, though her aggressive pressure on the ball caused her to get into foul trouble early.

The third quarter was highlighted by Jada Williams and Ware as they scored all of Armijo’s 15 points in the period.

Williams had nine points, all coming from beyond the arc. She had 14 points in the game.

“We haven’t shot this well in a long time,” Trigg said. “I think they started to believe in our offense. They saw certain things that we ran and ‘Hey, it worked’.”

Fairfield scored eight in the third period. Ebony Hughes started the scoring and Lia WIlliams led the quarter with six points.

Lia Williams led all scorers for the Falcons with nine points.

Other scorers for Fairfield were Kayla Farr, Fay Anderson, Ebony Hughes – with two apiece – and Grace Carter with one point.

The Falcons had 24 turnovers and were outrebounded 39-19.

“Basically, you gotta practice hard,” Gilliard said. “They’re young. Hopefully we come out and play hard and there will be a difference.”

The Indians shot nearly 50 percent as they finished the game at 46 percent, going 27-of-58.

“I’m hoping they saw how we can read and react and if there is pressure, we can make adjustments,” Trigg said.

Armijo will play Benicia, Tuesday, in its last game before Monticello Empire League play at Vacaville, next Friday.

Fairfield opens up Solano County Athletic League play as it travels to Vallejo, Thursday.
