PREP BASKETBALL: Forest Lake Christian girls extend win streak, clinch share of league title

The Union staff

The Forest Lake Christian girls basketball team extended its winning streak to 13-games and clinched at least a share of the Central Valley California League title after knocking off Victory Christian, 49-30, Tuesday.

The Lady Falcons are now 15-5 overall and 8-0 in CVCL play. A win over Foresthill next Tuesday would give FLC the league crown outright. The last time the Lady Falcons won a league title was in 2008 when they shared it with Vacaville Christian. FLC hasn't won a league championship outright since 2007.

The Lady Falcons have been dominant in league play this season, beating their CVCL opponents by an average of 24 points. FLC's closest league game was a 12-point victory over Woodland Christian.

The Lady Falcons have three contests left in the regular season, starting with a non-league game against Futures at home Friday, a home league game against Foresthill Tuesday and a road match with Delta Wednesday.

The Lady Miners (11-13, 1-8 SFL) have three games left in the regular season. They will host Granite Bay at 6 p.m. Friday, travel to Rocklin Monday and return home to face Oak Ridge at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday for Senior Night.
