FLC beats up Eagles

Forest Lake Christian’s girls basketball team did what they do best – score from beyond the 3-point arc and play strong defense – as the fifth-seed Falcons buried No. 4 Mountain Oaks 49-20 in the second round of the Division V Sac-Joaquin Section Playoffs at Calaveras High School Thursday.

“Actually, we didn’t shoot very well,” FLC coach Ken Holt said after the game. “But we were good enough to beat this team.”

The Falcons (18-9) held the Eagles to five points in each quarter of the contest.

Mountain Oaks (23-4) ran a 2-3 zone, which was perfect for the Falcons’ offense, Holt said.

“We missed three, after three, after three,” he said. “We could have had 100 points if we made our shots.”

Katie Fletcher had 12 points on three 3-pointers. Lindsey Engbrecht had 10 points, while Kelsey Yates and Kate Hoge each scored eight points with two 3-pointers each.

Kayla Campora had seven points, seven boards, six assists and five steals while working in foul trouble. Hoge added another eight boards. Morgan Pomeroy chipped in four points.

FLC will play Bradshaw Christian on Tuesday in the semifinals of the section playoffs at Galt High School. Bradshaw Christian, the No. 1 seed in the bracket, beat Sacramento Waldorf 69-45 to advance to the third round.
