Falcons tip visiting Woodland Christian in basketball tilt
Sachi Botner scored nine of her team-high 14 points in the fourth quarter to lead the host Forest Lake Christian girls basketball team to a 68-55 win over Woodland Christian Tuesday.
FLC, which improved to 23-1 overall and 11-0 in the Central Valley Christian League, moved its unbeaten streak to 20 games.
Woodland Christian trailed by 11 points after three quarters, but cut the lead to three midway through the fourth quarter.
FLC head coach Rob Hodges put the ball in Botner’s hands and the freshman hit a field goal and went seven-of-eight from the free throw line down the stretch.
Braeden Huusfeldt, who tallied a team-high 10 rebounds, and Katelyn Gilfillan scored 10 points each.
Thomas leads Bruins to blowout win
Briana Thomas scored 13 points and grabbed a career-high 24 rebounds in the Bear River girls basketball team’s 62-34 win over host Roseville Tuesday.
The 24 boards was also second most in a game in Lady Bruin history. Kylee Keroher set the record with 25 during the 1997/98 season.
Bear River (18-7 overall, 10-1 Sierra Foothill League) trailed by four points a the half, but turned up the juice in the second half.
“We were hurrying too much in the first half. But we were much more deliberate in the second,” said Bear River head coach Duwaine Ganskie.
Meaghan Noud led Bear River with 14 points. Amy Pistone chipped in 13 points.
Falcon boys win
Forest Lake Christian’s boys basketball team posted a 49-35 victory Tuesday night over host Woodland High School.
The margin of victory was similar to an earlier win against Woodland; the style of play, however, was quite different in the first matchup, in which Forest Lake scored 75 points.
“We played real good defense in the second half, and they played good defense on us, too,” Forest Lake Christian coach Davin Johnson.
Max Botner led the Falcons Tuesday with 13 points. Teammate Sam Koopmans added 12, and junior forward Taylor Lawrence contributed 10 points and six rebounds.
The win improves Forest Lake to 9-2 in league, 17-8 overall.
