FLC girls win

Brittany Allen had a huge game for the Forest Lake Christian girls basketball team Friday night, lifting the Falcons to a 64-49 victory at Woodland Christian.

Allen led the team with 19 points while dishing out nine assists and snagging five steals. Brooke Hodges added 14 points while Taylor Kilgore and Olympia Jacobs each poured in 11.

Lauren Jackson pulled down 11 rebounds while scoring six points.

The two teams were tied at halftime, but FLC (15-2 overall, 6-0 Central Valley Christian League) stepped up its defense in the second half, holding the hosts to just nine points in each of the final two quarters.

The Falcons, meanwhile rattled off 18 in the third and 17 in the fourth for the convincing victory.

“We really stepped up our defense in the second half,” Falcon head coach Steve Kellar said. “Brittany and Lauren were both in foul trouble in the first half. But we shut down two of the premier scorers in the league.”

Kellar said that coming into the game Woodland Christian was ranked second in the section in the power ratings while his own Falcons were third.

The Falcons return to action tonight in Lafayette for the Acalanes Shootout. Forest Lake faces off with Piedmont which, Kellar said, is ranked 24th in the nation by USA Today.

FLC boys drop road game

The Forest Lake Christian boys basketball team got a season high 15 points from Chris Keller, but it wasn’t enough in a 69-57 loss to host Woodland Christian.

The Falcons dropped to 10-6 overall and 4-2 in Central Valley Christian League play.

FLC leading scorer Mark Boatman, who sat out the second half due to an apparent broken nose, was held to a season-low five points.

“We made a run in the second half and not having out leading scorer was kind of a factor,” Falcon head coach Steve Gonet said.

Sam Matteer finished with 13 points and a team-best six rebounds for FLC.

The Falcons will play at Victory Christian (Carmichael) 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
