Forest Lake Christian adds two wins to records

The Forest Lake Christian girls basketball team upped its win streak to 14 with an 82-29 home-court win over Sacramento Country Day School Friday.

The Lady Falcons improved to 16-1 overall and 6-0 in the Central Valley Christian League.

“We knew coming in this (wasn’t going to be a tough game). We just treated it like a tune up for tomorrow,” FLC head coach Rob Hodges said.

The Division V Lady Falcons will face off against Division I Elk Grove in Saturday’s Metro/Delta League Challenge at Cosumnes River College. Tip off is 2:30 p.m.

Tracy Malone tallied a team high 15 points.

Brooke Hodges, Lindsay Hayward and Chrysten Cotney finished the game with 10 points each for Forest Lake.

Hodges also tallied four assists and five steals. Cotney finished with four assists and four steals.

Braeden Huusfeldt, a senior, chalked up nine points and a team-high 10 rebounds in the game.

Falcon boys blast Country Day

Max Botner scored a team-high 22 points and Colin Harman chipped in 21 more as the host Forest Lake Christian boys basketball team defeated Sacramento Country Day 90-37 Friday.

Despite the lopsided outcome, FLC head coach Davin Johnson said his boys kept their heads in the game.

“They did a good job of staying focused,” he said. “Sometimes it’s hard to keep focus in a game like this.”

James Belch scored 12 for the Falcons and Jared Fore added eight points in the win.

FLC (13-7 overall, 5-1 Central Valley Christian League) will get a chance to avenge last season’s Sac Joaquin Section Division V finals loss when Victory Christian of Carmichael comes to town Tuesday at 8 p.m.
