Solano drops Showdown opener to Shasta

Shannon Rankin goes up for a jump shot through the Shasta defense Friday night.

The Solano women’s basketball team dropped the first game of the Solano Showdown 59-54 to Shasta College.

The Falcons fell behind 12 in the second half before rallying to cut the lead to two with just less than 6 minutes remaining. Shasta tightened up its defense and got second-chance opportunities on offense to secure the win.

Shannon Rankin led the way for the Falcons with 12 points, 9 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 assists. Kayla Campora added 12 points, 4 assists and 3 steals while Ruby Leon chipped in 10 points, 3 steals and 2 blocked shots.

Sophomore point guard Presley Neufeld had a well-rounded game with 9 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals.

Solano (4-6) falls into the consolation bracket of the tournament and plays at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
