Two quarters not enough in Armijo girls basketball loss

From page B1 | January 25, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — It was too little, too late for the home squad.

The Armijo High girls basketball team was outscored 45-4 in the first and third quarters, negating a 31-23 edge held by the host Indians in the second and fourth in a 68-35 Monticello Empire League loss to Napa at E. Gary Vaughn Gymnasium, Friday.

Armijo (7-12, 1-2) was held scoreless in the first quarter by Napa (18-1, 3-0), which held a 24-0 advantage after the first eight minutes.

“I don’t think we were ready to play,” Armijo coach Lawrence Trigg said. “Because we weren’t able to get our offensive end going and we weren’t patient enough to look for quality shots, we tried to rush everything in our offense.

“They kept trying to force the issue. We can’t do that by forcing everything and quick-shooting everything. We have to slow down and work.”

Armijo was 0 for 10 in the first quarter and Napa caused the home team to turn the ball over 10 times.

Jasmine Washington had 10 points in the quarter for Napa, while Madison Van Zandt had eight.

It was the second quarter where Armijo’s players – and crowd – came alive as Destiny Blueford opened with a corner 3-pointer.

After a Napa miss and Passion Ware rebound, Kira Wilson scored Armijo’s next basket, giving the home team some hope.

“That excitement of the first point and the crowd helped them,” Trigg said. “They play better with excitement.”

Play better they did as they outscored Napa 17-12 in the second quarter. Armijo shot 61 percent (8 of 13) in the second, while Napa was only 5 of 13 (38 percent).

The home team also cleaned up its overall play, only committing 5 turnovers. The two teams were even in rebounds with 16 apiece.

Tiffini Mestas of Armijo contributed to the second quarter scoring with six points.

Armijo’s Ware grabbed eight rebounds in the first half, while Van Zandt had five for Napa.

Going in to halftime, Armijo clawed its way back to a 36-17 deficit.

The home team looked to bring its second quarter momentum into the third period as it scored a quick four points in a 2-minute span, but those would be its only points of the quarter, being outscored 21-4 by Napa.

Napa’s Kelsey Maday had 10 points in the third quarter – ending with a team-high 21 for the game.

After Armijo’s last basket at the 6:17, they were 0 of 8 from the field and didn’t even attempt a shot until the 3:18 mark.

The fourth quarter was a bit like the second as Armijo outscored Napa 14-11, but too little, too late.

Six different players scored for Armijo in the fourth, including four more points from Mestas, who led the team with 12.

Mestas said it felt good to lead the team in scoring. As for Napa, she added, “They’re the best in the league right now, so it would have been nice to beat the team that is No. 1.”

Ware ended the game with five points and 10 rebounds, while Blueford added seven points.

Van Zandt had 14 points and seven boards, while Washington had 14 points.

“We played two good quarters, but we have to play four,” Trigg said. “We have to be better prepared coming out (for the) first and third quarters.”

In JV action, Armijo fell 60-20. Sierra Chapman led with eight, while Danee Lockhart had six.

Armijo travels to Vintage, Tuesday.
