Falcon girls keep up streak
Move over Sacramento Waldorf, there’s a new sheriff in town.
SW, whose 109-game Central Valley Christian League girls basketball win streak was broken by Forest Lake Christian last season, were beaten for the third time in four outings by the very same Lady Falcons Friday.
FLC (22-1 overall, 10-0 CVCL) got a team-high 15 points from Brooke Hodges and 10 rebounds from Julia Hall in a 57-48 win.
The win ups the Lady Falcons’ unbeaten streak to 19.
With score knotted at 14-14 going into the second quarter, FLC’s Chrysten Cotney, who finished with 10 points and a team-high four assists, got the visitors on track with a pair of long distance dial ups.
“Chrysten hit those big threes, and we finally started taking care of the ball in the second,” FLC head coach Rob Hodges said.
Jaime Laughlin finished with eight points and three assists. Katelyn Gilfillan totaled six points and led the team in steals with four. Braeden Huusfeldt snagged nine rebounds.
BR snags win
Steve Sacher sank a pair of free throws with 5.4 seconds left in regulation and the Bear River boys basketball team held on for its third-straight win, 55-54 win at Del Oro Friday.
Bear River (9-12 overall, 4-6 Sierra Foothill League) led by a point with time running down when Sacher scored his only points of the game.
“It’s always a battle down there. I’m very pleased to get out of there with a win,” said Bear River coach Jack McCrory.
Matt Logue led the Bruins with 14 points. Dylan Mitzel and Dean Wibbenhorst finished with 12 points each.
FLC boys finish with a flourish
Max Botner scored a team-high 24 points and Adam O’Brien drained a pair of key fourth quarter treys as the Forest Lake boys basketball team came from behind to beat host Sacramento Waldorf, 51-44 Friday.
“We were down by seven going into the fourth quarter and Adam came off the bench and made two clutch threes,” FLC head coach Davin Johnson said.
Colin Harman finished with seven points, seven rebounds and five assists. Taylor Lawrence and O’Brien totaled six points.
