After opening the season 8-0 and winning a pair of tournaments, the Forest Lake Christian boys basketball team has had its struggles. The Falcons have lost three straight, including Tuesday night’s 85-64 loss to San Juan.
The Falcons were no match in the paint against the taller San Juan and that led to the Falcons getting crushed in the rebounding department, said FLC head coach Jason Camacho.
In the loss, Chase Augustino led the Falcons with a team-high 18 points, Brandon Camacho added 17 points and Charles Negus chipped in 10.
The Falcons (8-3) will look to find their winning way again Dec. 27 when they head to the Vacaville Christian Tournament.
JV: Bear River 60, Pioneer 40

JV: Forest Lake Christian 40, Foresthill 31
The Lady Falcons had three players in double figures as they defeated Foresthill by nine.

The Lady Falcons (2-5) are off until Jan. 3 when they open league play against Sacramento Waldorf.
