NAPA — The Solano Community College women’s basketball team continued its unbeaten streak in Bay Valley Conference play as it rallied to defeat Napa Valley 72-63, Tuesday.

The Falcons (12-4, 3-0 BVC) were down 42-34 at the half against the Storm, but made a 38-21 run to end the game with a victory.

“We made a slight adjustment on the press and got some turnovers off of that,” Solano coach Matt Borchert said.

Borchert added the Falcons played better half-court defense in the second half and that led to some turnovers and easy baskets.

Denisha Lundy led Solano with 18 points, while Taylor Hamilton added 17. Nikki Andaya and Laura Lawson had 10 apiece.

The Falcons will play at Mendocino College, Thursday, at 5:30 p.m.

Armijo falls on road to Franklin

ELK GROVE — The Armijo High girls basketball team saw its scoring drought continue as only three of its players scored in its 41-33 loss to Franklin, Tuesday.

The Indians (4-10) outscored the Wildcats 20-18 in the second half, but it was the first half – specifically the second quarter – that kept Armijo from the win.

Armijo netted only four points in the second quarter and was outscored 22-13 in the first half.

“We only had seven turnovers in the second half,” Indians coach Lawrence Trigg said. “We’re taking baby steps, but we have to shoot better.”

Passion Ware had a double-double as she led Armijo with 12 points and 16 rebounds. Jada Williams added 12 points, while Tiffini Mestas had nine points and 11 boards.

The Indians will travel across town as they play at Fairfield, Friday.

Buckingham Charter 23, Faith Christian 22: At Vacaville, the Knights (4-5, 1-0), led by Jasmine Gonzalez with 13 points and four steals, opened up Sacramento Metro Athletic League play with a victory.

Cilease Hathcock had nine rebounds, while Channing Ward added seven.

Buckingham will play Sacramento Adventist at Vaca Peña Middle School, Thursday.
