| Roundup: Wildcats win consolation championship in Nevada Union Tournament
The Will C. Wood boys basketball team visited the Nevada Union Tournament in Grass Valley and returned home with a consolation championship.
After routing Enterprise High School (2-4) to the tune of a 54-39 score Friday night, Wood (3-2) slid past River Valley 61-53 thanks to a three-point barrage spear-headed by seniors Michael Wudel and Jay Nagle.
Wudel, who was selected to the all-tourney team, scored five of six three-pointers in the second half and finished with a team-high 20 points. Nagle connected on four of his five long range jumpers and scored 19 points with six rebounds. Ricky Holland added a team-high eight boards in the win.
On Friday versus Enterprise, Nagle led the team with 20 points and three steals. Wudel tallied nine points and five boards in the win, while Ricky Holland, Landon Seaman and Therese Carson collected 5 rebounds apiece and played intense defense.
The Wildcats are slated to return to their home hardwood Tuesday versus Vallejo (6-2).
Esparto 64, Buckingham 56 >> The Spartans outlasted the Knights Friday night at Esparto High School.
Buckingham’s Max Gibson and Jasper Zollinger stepped up amid the losing effort. Gibson registered a team-high 11 points, while Zollinger added four points and four rebounds.
“It’s good to see Max starting to come into his leadership role,” said head coach Dan Curry. “Jasper continues to impress me with his consistent improvement. We need to clean up our defensive rotations and handle pressure from defenses better. Once we can do that, we will see a much different team.”
Vacaville Christian 54, Armijo 29 >> The Falcons cruised past the Indians at Armijo High School Friday evening.
Vac Christian’s Ashley Jones dominated the paint with a game-high 14 rebounds and 13 points. Allie Torres led all scorers with 16 as she went 4-for-7 from downtown.
Falcons’ freshman guard Addison Alsbury chipped in with 11pts and fellow freshman Mirah Jackson finished with eight points and eight steals.
“I think our pressure was just a little too much for them tonight,” said head coach Mike Morris. “We were able to convert some easy baskets in transition off of turnovers.”
The Falcons return home to face Winters on Wednesday.
Buckingham 32, Esparto 12 >> The Knights served up a blowout to the Spartans Friday night in Esparto thanks to big games from Ruthie Bowen, Trinnity Hogenmiller and Hope Arana.
“They were very effective in their roles tonight,” said head coach Tessa Threets. I appreciate their passion and effort for their team.
“All in all, we’re proud of the girls for bouncing back after the loss to VCS on Wednesday.”
Buckingham will play its next game Monday as they visit Rocklin, Calif. to face Western Sierra Collegiate Academy.
Vanden 4, Will C. Wood 0 >> The Vikings faced the Wildcats on Friday night and saw a bevy of players step up in the lopsided victory.
Vanden’s Tai Wilson led the way with two goals in the home victory.
Fellow Vikings Meilani Cron and Danielle Powell each found the back of the net as Bailey Norman picked up the clean sheet.
Buckingham 8, Willows 0 >> Buckingham’s overwhelming attack and stout defense fueled the Knights’ blowout victory over the visiting Willows Honkers.
Buckingham’s Jordyn Bingaman continued her torrid scoring pace as she slotted home five goals and added an assist. Fellow Knight Jenny LeCheminant scored three goals and added two assists in the win.
As the game transpired, everyone played meaningful minutes. Tatum Wurzbach, Uma Kamath and Taylor Alvarez played fantastic in their first extended look of the season. Marisol Torres looked strong in her midfield play, and Bingaman, Ashley Horan and Kayla Arias linked well in the midfield. Goalkeepers Anna Glynn and Liz Deards combined for the shutout.
The Knights play defending section champs Ben Holt in their next game on Wednesday.
