Solano demolishes the Comets
Jan. 27 — Extending the Solano College winning streak to three games beating Contra Costa, the Falcons conference record through January is 6 – 1. Solano, led by forward Marissa Dunn scoring 15 and guard Tara Cooley scoring 14 played the Comets, led by guard Alley Roberts who scored six. The Falcons started the game scoring what ended up being the first 18 points of the game. With 9.45 seconds left in the first half, the Comets finally scored their first two. The Comets head coach Paul Debolt announced right before the shot that if they were to make two, he would give his girls a timeout. First half ends Solano 37, Contra Costa 9.
Solano started the second half scoring 13 points, preventing Contra Costa for seven minutes and 15 seconds of game play before the Comets scored. Falcons defense, led by forward Shannon Rankin, who caused multiple jump balls, helped restrain the Comets to only scoring 13 points the entire game.
Well there’s really not much to say about it,” Debolt said. “We’ve had three, four injuries, it’s not an excuse and we’re just trying to get through the season the best we can.”
“We’re always happy that we win,” Solano coach Matt Borchert said. “We accomplished our goal of going 2-0 in the week.”
When asked about the upcoming playoffs, Borchert said, “We’re not even thinking about the playoffs, we’re just thinking winning conference.”
