FAIRFIELD — Alberto Martinez and Jesse Martinez each earned pins and the Fairfield High wrestling team took advantage of six forfeits to snap a league 25-match losing streak with a 48-32 win over Vallejo in its return to the Solano County Athletic Conference at Ronald D. Thompson Gymnasium, Wednesday.

The Falcons last league win was a 35-30 triumph over Armijo in the Monticello Empire League on Jan. 31, 2007.

Alberto Martinez won at 126 pounds in 5 minutes, 22 seconds, Jesse Martinez at 179 in 2:51. They are not related.

“Alberto and Jesse did their technique perfectly,” Fairfield coach Kyle Holsworth said. “They didn’t make mistakes. That’s why they got their pins.”

Prevailing by forfeit for Fairfield were Robert Correia (106), Apai Baumbuttim (132), Damarri Gulley (145), Xavier Bolden (160), Kyle Martinez (182) and Kahlid Walker (195).

The Fairfield varsity is at the Valley of the Moon Classic at Sonoma Valley High on Friday and Saturday, while the JV team is the St. Patrick’s of Vallejo Crossface Classic on Saturday.

Benicia 55, Vanden 15: At Fairfield, the Vikings opened SCAC competition on a losing note.

Winning for Vanden were Kyle Tygart with a 2-1 decision at 160 with Alberto Bernales at 170 and Brandon Dontongan prevailing by forfeit.

“The struggles continue,” Vikings coach Lloyd Wilson said.

Vanden is at the St. Patrick’s of Vallejo Crossface Classic JV tournament on Saturday.

Rodriguez 74, Vintage 6: At Napa, the Mustangs returned to the MEL with an easy win over the Crushers.

Jasiah Sta Maria (138), Ralph Carios (152), Jacob Cross (160), Josh Weiss (170) and Patrick Ferrer (heavyweight) all won by pin for Rodriguez, while Jarros Guinn (145) won by technical fall.

The Mustangs are back in action Friday and Saturday during the Valley of the Moon Classic in Sonoma.

Rough start too much to overcome for Falcons

GRANITE BAY — The Fairfield High boys basketball team outscored Granite Bay in each of the final three quarters but couldn’t overcome a 22-9 deficit after the first in falling 67-63 to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

“We were a little rattled at the beginning, but we found a way to gain some composure,” Falcons coach Tony Bryant said. “We defended a little bit and we started to make a few shots. Our energy level started to pick up.”

DeMoriaye Hart-Spikes led Fairfield (7-9) with 24 points, while Sean Gray added 15.

The Falcons host Armijo on Friday.
