Rodriguez girls rally to top Vacaville in OT

VACAVILLE — Janessa Boling poured in 25 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter and three in overtime as the Rodriguez High girls basketball team closed the regular season with a 69-62 Monticello Empire League victory, Tuesday.

Boling also had 10 steals and four assists as the Mustangs (16-10, 8-2 MEL) outscored the Bulldogs (14-10, 6-4 MEL) 23-11 in the final quarter to force the overtime.

Briana Hayles added 17 points, including four in the extra period, along with six assists, while Daraja Carroll contributed 12 points, six rebounds and two blocks, and Destiny Greenwood scored eight points.

With the win the Mustangs nailed down sole possession of second place in the MEL. Both teams qualified for the upcoming Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs, the brackets for which will be released, Wednesday.

Vanden 62, Fairfield 9: At Ronald D. Thompson Gymnasium, the Vikings (21-5, 10-0) completed their second straight unbeaten Solano County Athletic Conference campaign and fifth in the last six seasons with their 24th straight SCAC victory.

Kiana Moore led Vanden with 20 points, while Mariah Williams had 11, Kayla Blair nine and Chantell Greer seven.

According to Vikings coach Allison Johnson, her players were also thinking about the Vanden boys, who won the SCAC title with a win over Fairfield.

“The girls were just as excited for the boys,” Johnson said, adding that 1995-96 “was the time (boys and girls teams) hung (championship) banners together. It was a chance for the boys to make history.”

Vanden JV 60, Fairfield 8: At Ronald D. Thompson Gymnasium, the Vikings (18-6, 8-2 SCAC) finished the season with a victory.

Krystal Gonzalez led Vanden with 11 points, while Derreca Simms had 10, Macie Saunders eight and Shaelie Burgess six.

Armijo 43, Vintage 38: At Fairfield, the Indians (10-16, 4-6 MEL) won their season finale on Senior Night behind 12 points and 13 rebounds from Passion Ware.

Noemi Manzo added six points for Armijo.

“I’m real proud of the improvement the girls showed throughout the year,” Indians coach Lawrence Trigg said. “They got double-digit wins, that’s something they worked hard for and should be proud of.”

Buckingham Charter 52, Sacramento Country Day 28: At Vacaville, Jasmine Gonzalez poured in 32 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as the Knights (7-12, 5-5 Sacramento Metro Athletic League) closed the season with a victory.

Buckingham also got nine points and five rebounds from Jasmine Coutee, and eight rebounds and three steals from Carissa Williams.

“They came out and performed well and went out on a good note,” Knights coach Tessa Threets said.

Tyree Carrie topped Armijo (5-19, 3-7 MEL with 18 points, followed by Jordan Allen with 16 and Bryce Lumpkins and Victor Caldwell with nine each.

Falcons get by Sierra College in 8 innings

ROCKLIN — The Solano Community College softball team improved to 5-1 on the season with a 4-3, eight-inning victory over Sierra College, Tuesday.

The Falcons scored after starting the extra frame with the international tiebreaker rule, which automatically places a runner on second base.

Aleyna Benipayo was the runner at second and was sacrificed to third on a bunt by Stefanie Chainurux. Shannan Mestas then drove in Benipayo for the winning run.

Benipayo, Mestas, Emile Goode and Jade Bactad were all 1 for 4 on the afternoon, with each player driving in a run.

Solano plays at American River College in Sacramento, Thursday.
