VACAVILLE — Everything must come to an end.

The Armijo High girls basketball team’s 30-game Monticello Empire League winning streak ended with a 63-57 loss to Vacaville in the MEL opener, Friday.

But not without a fight.

The Indians (6-11) were down by 23 points with 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter and went on a 18-1 run to end the game – holding the Bulldogs (9-6) to five points in the quarter.

In the first quarter, there were three ties and five lead changes as the game looked to be a nail-biter. Armijo had the lead three times – the last at 10-8 after a Kira Wilson 3-pointer with 3 minutes left in the quarter.

Vacaville then went on a 13-0 run to end the first to take a 21-10 lead into the second quarter, never trailing again.

The Bulldogs were 8 of 22 (36 percent) from the field in the first quarter, hitting 4 of 11 (36 percent) shots from beyond the arc. Senior Capriana Christian had nine points – all on 3-pointers.

The Indians turned the ball over 11 times to Vacaville’s five.

“One of the things we talked about coming in was that they press a lot,” Armijo coach Lawrence Trigg said. “That forced us to pick up our pace.”

Armijo committed 32 turnovers in the game.

The Indians cleaned up their play a bit in the second as they didn’t commit a turnover until 5 minutes were left in the second quarter – ending with eight in the period.

The second quarter was evenly matched as Vacaville only outscored Armijo 13 to 12. Armijo was 5 for 20 from the field (25 percent), though 0 for 5 from beyond the arc.

Passion Ware had six points in the quarter, while Mackenzie Shrock had seven for the Bulldogs.

The second period was the opening act of the Shrock show as she went on to score 10 in the third quarter – leading all scorers for the game with 21 points.

Vacaville had its biggest lead of the night at 62-39 in the beginning of the fourth, after a basket from Lizzy Roark.

Armijo’s Jada Williams began the 18-1 run after a layup at the 4 minute 37 second mark. She scored 12 in the Indians’ run and led the team with 17.

Ware scored the Indians’ final points on a pair of free throws. Tiffini Mestas stole the ensuing inbound from Vacaville, but stepped out of bounds, giving the Bulldogs back the ball – and sealing the win.

Ware had a quiet double-double as she grabbed 11 rebounds and scored 12 points.

“Hopefully we can build on this,” Trigg said. “We’re making leaps and bounds of progress. Hopefully they’ll stay proud of themselves and recognize what they did.”

In JV action, Armijo grabbed a 47-31 victory.

Sierra Chapman led all scorers with 13 points, while Audrey Parker had 12 and Keyaunna Harrison nine. Alex Dinsdale led the Bulldogs with with nine.

The Indians travel to Will C. Wood on Tuesday.
