The Solano Community College women’s basketball team fell to Laney College in Oakland 62-58 on Friday. The game was a back-and-forth battle between two extremely competitive teams. The Falcons had the chance to tie the game at 60 but missed a jumper with about two seconds left to go in the game. Solano was forced to foul and Laney hit a pair of free throws to seal the victory.
Ariel Clay scored 17 points in the loss and added four rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots while fellow forward Ariella Harper added a double double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Freshman point guard Taylor Hamilton just missed out on a quadruple double, scoring nine points and adding 10 rebounds, 8 assists and 8 steals.
Solano heads into a busy week next week with three conference games on the schedule. The Falcons take on Napa Valley and Mendocino at home on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively and then travel to take on Los Medanos College in Pittsburg on Saturday.
