The Homecoming crowd was all smiles after the Forest Lake Christian girls basketball team’s 86-15 win over Faith Christian (Yuba City) Friday.

They saw the two-time defending Central Valley Christian League champion Lady Falcons win their 30th-straight league game and clinch at least a share of the league title.

Lauren Jackson, a freshman, led the way for the hosts with 15 points and four rebounds.

Fellow ninth-graders Brittany Allen, Taylor Kilgore and Olympia Jacobs also turned in big-time performances.

Allen finished with four points along with seven assists and seven steals. Kilgore and Jacobs combined for 24 points.

Jacobs also chipped in seven steals.

FLC (21-4 overall, 12-0 CVCL), which had a scare at Woodland Christian four nights ago, can take the league title outright with a win at Victory Christian (Carmichael) Tuesday.

“We had a wake-up call at Woodland Christian. That game was a lot closer than we would have liked,” Lady Falcon head coach Rob Hodges said. “Now we have Victory at their place. That should be a

good tune-up (for the playoffs).”
