Falcons win fourth straight; win nailbiter over Marin

January 18, 2013

The Solano College women’s basketball team got a bit of a scare after leading 13 at the half but pulled out a 63-51 win over College of Marin in Bay Valley Conference action on Tuesday night.

The game was the only one of the week for the Falcons who won’t play again until a January 23 contest against Contra Costa.

Solano got one of its most balanced scoring efforts of the season as every player scored in helping the Falcons hit the .500 mark for the first time since November 29.

Ariel Clay and Taylor Hamilton each scored 13 points for the Falcons while Cheyenne Shepherd added 11 points. Taylor added five assists and five steals while Ariel grabbed 11 rebounds and three steals.

Stephanie Saelee chipped in eight points for her second straight solid effort off the bench for the Falcons. Necole White hit three 3-pointers and finished with nine points.

Solano (5-1 BVC, 8-8) led 38-25 at the half before College of Marin blasted out of the gates in the second half, eventually tying the game at 40 before going up 41-40. The Falcons answered right back with a huge run and pulled away over the remainder of the game to secure its fourth straight win.
