VACAVILLE — The Rodriguez High boys basketball team led 71-52 after three quarters and had to hold off a late Vacaville surge to escape with a 77-70 Monticello Empire League victory on Tuesday.

“We just continued to run our plays, to execute, that was it,” Mustangs coach Nate Rankin said. “Defensive-wise, we let down. We had some mishaps we’ve got to correct.

Rodriguez (9-11, 4-0 MEL) was led by David Shelton and Kyle Williams with 13 each, while Tim Moore Jr. had 12 and Ronnie Glover 10.

In JV action, the Mustangs (15-3, 3-1 MEL) fell to the Bulldogs 54-47.

Courtund McLean led Rodriguez with 15 points and Elijah Lawson added 12.

The Mustangs next play on Thursday at Armijo.

Vanden 70, American Canyon 60: At Fairfield, the Vikings (13-8, 2-2 SCAC) managed to solve the Wolves’ zone to get to .500 in conference play.

“We started to really attack,” Vanden coach Micheal Holloway said. “They played a zone for most of the game. We were able to attack the zone, get it to the middle and break it down.”

Jordan Collier and Demaree Walker each scored 17 points to lead the Vikings, while Jaimon Robinson netted 11.

Vanden dropped the JV game 66-40 with the Vikings (9-8, 2-2 SCAC) getting 13 points from Rashad Fisher, 12 from Anthony Anchante and 11 from Javin White.

The Vikings entertain Fairfield on Thursday.

Armijo 61, Vintage 45: At Napa, the Indians (9-6, 2-2 MEL) jumped on the Crushers for a 23-14 lead after a quarter and never let up.

Troy Anderson led with 17 points, followed by Bryce Lumpkins and Terris Brooks with 10 each.

Armijo also closed it out with a 15-5 fourth quarter in which coach Carly Perales said the team did its best work.

The Indians host Rodriguez on Thursday.

Wood 65, Napa 57: At Vacaville, the Wildcats (14-8, 3-1 MEL) rallied from a five-point halftime deficit with a 19-4 third quarter to hold on to second place in the MEL standings.

Davis Wade led Wood with 17 points, while Lejon Sewell added 11. Darius Washington and Jamal Brown each scored 10.

Wood is at Vacaville on Thursday.

    It's good to see Rodriquez in the MEL. Hope to see Armijo & Wood move over to the SCAC.
