Falcons fall to Comets
The Contra Costa Comets pulled away in the second half outscoring the Falcons 41 to 26 and winning the game 70–52 on Jan. 27. Center Issac Jackson, with 15 points, and guard Justin Pollard, with 10, led scoring for the Comets.
The Solano men’s basketball team came out strong, showing positive signs and optimistic that they would beat the Comets. During the first half, the Falcons kept pace with the Comets scoring basket for basket and only trailed by three at half, 26 – 29.
Leading scorers for Solano during the first-half were forward Chris Edens with six, nine total for the game. James Givens scored two three-pointers.
Dustin Aubert scored four in the first half, leading the team with 10 overall.
“First half we played really well, second half, unfortunately, we had a long offensive drought,” Falcons coach John Nagle said.
“We were able to slow them down and took them out of their strength and abilities to attack the basket so I thought we competed really well and made some shots.”
“We’ve just got to keep getting better, we’re young, growing and developing, still overcoming a lot of injuries, et cetera. Still developing chemistry,” Nagle said.
