The Week Ahead: Crosstown rivalries hit the court

From page B1 | January 06, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — Three crosstown rivalry games, all of which figure to be barn burners, highlight this week’s action.

Rodriguez hosts Fairfield in boys basketball with the Mustangs (12-1), winners of 10 straight, looking for their first ever win over the Falcons (13-2), who have won 12 in a row.

Rodriguez then entertains Vanden (6-5) on Thursday, rekindling a rivalry from when both were in the Solano County Athletic Conference.

The Armijo and Fairfield girls basketball teams have both struggled this season, especially on the offensive end, making Friday’s clash at the Falcons’ Ronald D. Thompson Gymnasium crucial for both teams.

Here’s a look at the rest of the week:

Tuesday

The Solano Community College men’s and women’s basketball teams continue Bay Valley Conference play at rival Napa Valley.

The Armijo boys head to Dixon, while Indians girls travel a bit further down the road to Franklin of Elk Grove.

Wednesday

League dual matches begin in wrestling with Rodriguez hosting Vintage, Armijo traveling to Wood and Vanden heading to Benicia.

The Vanden girls basketball team heads to Napa for an interesting SCAC-MEL clash.

Thursday

The Solano basketball teams again hit the road, this time traveling to Mendocino of Ukiah.

The Fairfield boys conclude their nonleague schedule by entertaining El Camino of Sacramento.

Friday

Armijo boys travel to Heritage of Brentwood to wrap up its nonleague schedule.

The Wood boys head down Peabody Road to play at Vanden.

In wrestling, the Rodriguez and Vanden girls are at the Napa Valley Classic, which concludes Saturday.

Saturday

The Solano men’s and women’s teams wrap up their three-game week by hosting Los Medanos.

In their final game before the start of SCAC play, the Vanden boys are at Stagg of Stockton.

The Rodriguez wrestling team battles in the Trojan War at Oak Ridge of El Dorado Hills.
