FAIRFIELD — The Vanden High girls basketball honored Vallejo Police Officer Jim Capoot, who died in the line of duty in 2011, before the game and then demolished Vacaville on the floor with an 85-35 nonleague victory at Jim Boyd Gym on Wednesday.

Capoot’s widow, Jennifer Capoot, was the guest of honor of the Vikings.

“Tonight’s game was dedicated to Officer Capoot and his legacy and memory,” Vanden coach Allison Johnson said. “I thought our girls were intense. . .  until the final buzzer. Tonight’s game was special for our guest of honor.”

Kayla Blair had 14 points to lead the Vikings, who scored as many points in the second quarter as the Bulldogs did the entire game.

“We just exploded that second quarter,” Johnson said.

Julia DePonte led the Bulldogs with 10 points, while Capriana Christian added nine.

Briana Hayles led the Mustangs with 17 points, hitting a key 3-pointer down the stretch in the fourth quarter. Jophiea Irvin was next with eight points, while Alijahnae Lockett added seven.
