Game summary:

After coming out on a terror and going into halftime with a 45-26 lead, the Falcons nearly saw their BVC title hopes diminish but squeaked out the win over Laney on Friday night.  It was a game of opposite halves; Solano owning the first and Laney commanding the second.  The 70-69 win, however, keeps the Falcons only one game back of first place Contra Costa.

Contra Costa last night…

January 29, 2009

The growth that this team has seen since our last game with Contra Costa has been incredible.  These women battle now.

It was fun to watch them respond and act when they got down, when before they would have just crossed their fingers and hoped for the best.  With most of the crowd screaming against them, they never quit last night.

I was unable to go to the game last night because of family obligations, but I can’t wait to watch the film.  A.D. taking over the game!  Nicole hitting shots.  Soroya boarding like the crazy rebounder she is.  Can’t wait to see it!
