Varsity Boys Basketball

Five games into the regular season, Calistoga has already equaled its win total from all of last year.

Varsity Girls Basketball

Vintage 57, Vacaville 25

Alyssa Andrews scored 16 points and had five assists and three steals, Ellie Savage had 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting on 3-pointers, Kate Ilsley had 11 points and five rebounds, and Nicole Gleeson had nine points, five rebounds and seven blocks, leading Vintage in a nonleague win over Vacaville on Monday.

Vintage trailed 10-8 after the first quarter. A strong defensive showing led to Vintage outscoring Vacaville 18-5 in the second quarter.

Vintage had a 45-19 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Dellaina Morse had six points, six rebounds and three assists.

Mo Groves had three points and three rebounds.

“Our shots weren’t falling early and we got a little frustrated, but as usual our defensive effort wasn’t affected by our struggles, and we played our way out of it over time,” said Vintage coach Joe Donohoe.

Tamalpais 44, Justin-Siena 38

Justin-Siena (2-2 overall) could not overcome cold shooting or its turnovers. However, down 31-9 late in the third quarter, the Braves rallied and went on a 22-7 run to pull the game within seven points at 38-31 midway through the fourth quarter.

The Braves were led by Ashlee Whittemore with 16 points, three assists, two rebounds and two steals, Isabella Wright with seven points, four rebounds and two assists, Kiran Monteverdi with six points and three rebounds, Sarah Reynolds with three points, Lexi Rosenbrand with two points and nine rebounds, Karlie Wells with two points and eight rebounds, and Ella Thatcher with two points, two rebounds and two steals.

“Definitely a frustrating and disappointing game for everyone on our team,” said coach Andy Bettencourt. “We did not come out with the intensity or focus we needed to from the start, and then compounded that with missing some shots that we would usually make. That being said, the second half was much better, and all 10 players played with a purpose and attitude that had been missing in the first half. We must bring that to the entire game going forward if we are to be successful.”

Tomales 38, Calistoga 35

The Wildcats’ 2018-19 season has gotten off to a slow start. They dropped to 0-2 on Monday with a 38-35 loss at Tomales.

Calistoga scored 18 points in the first three quarters before staging a late comeback, scoring 17 points in the fourth quarter alone. But the hole was too deep to climb out of and Tomales hung on for the win.
