Solano Women drop thrilling contest at COS

Valley Dec. 4 in the consolation semifinals of the Tom Gilcrest Invitational at College of Sequoias. Borchert said the crowd in attendance was cheering the entire game as Solano went on a 12-2 run in the final 49 seconds of the first overtime to force the extra period. But defensive breakdowns and turnovers at crucial times on offense sent the Falcons out of the tournament. Welana Toki led the way for Solano (3-5) with 23 points and 11 rebounds while Alitrinette Scott scored 15 points and added six rebounds, Marian Murphy had 11 points and five rebounds and Arielle Salvador added 10 points. With 49 seconds left in overtime the Falcons were down 63-53. Solano hit two free throws with 39 seconds left and Murphy was fouled on the box out sending her to the line with 39 seconds still remaining. She hit one attempt to make the score 63-57 and the Falcons fouled immediately. L.A. Valley made two free throws with 37 seconds on the clock and Murphy was fouled again on Solano's next possession. She hit both free throws to make the score 65-59. Murphy was fouled again on the box out and hit another pair of free throws to cut Solano's deficit to four, 65-61, with 32 ticks left. L.A. Valley missed its free throws and Toki made one free throw the next time down to make the score 65-62 with 18 seconds left. L.A. Valley came up empty on its next possession and Angelica Negron nailed a 24-foot 3-pointer with 10 seconds left to tie the game at 65-65 and send the crowd into a frenzy. "Everybody was yelling," Borchert said. "It was awesome." In the double overtime, Murphy's attempt at a game-winning 3-pointer graced the front of the rim as the buzzer sounded. Solano now prepares for its own Solano Showdown which opens Dec. 10. The Falcons open with DeAnza College at 8 p.m.
