PREP BASKETBALL: Nevada Union boys have 5-game SFL win streak snapped by Folsom
The Nevada Union boys basketball team had its five-game Sierra Foothill League winning streak snapped Friday night after falling to Folsom, 55-50.
The Miners (16-8, 5-4 SFL) trailed the league leading Bulldogs by 11 points at halftime, rallied to get within two in the second half, but that was as close as they would get to handing Folsom its first league loss.
Gary Menary led NU with 14 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. David Menary had a team-high 15 points to go with eight rebounds and Jahn Chensee added eight points for the Miners.
Nevada Union remains in third place in the SFL standings behind Folsom, second-place Woodcreek and ahead of fourth-place Granite Bay.
Nevada Union hits the court again at 7 p.m. tonight at Granite Bay.
Delta 73, Forest Lake Christian 54
The Falcons and Saints battled closely in the first half, but in the second half the Saints took over.
After Delta took a 28-27 lead into halftime, it ran away from Forest Lake Christian in the second half, outscoring the Falcons 45-27 across the final two quarters.
Forest lake Christian was led by Alex Schneider with 19 points and Brett Soria with 14 points. Senior post player Garrett Reader added three points to go along with a strong rebounding effort, grabbing 11 in the game.
The Falcons (8-14, 2-7 Central Valley California League) closes the regular season Tuesday at Foresthill. The CVCL tourney opens Friday.
