The last league basketball game took place at Foothill High School Friday with the gym packed and the energy was high.
The hometown rivalry game, where anything can happen, was going to be a good one. The Foothill Falcons were out to win the battle and maintain their home court win streak, but the Amador Valley High School Dons were there to sweep the game.
The first two quarters were tough. The Dons had trouble on their shots and scored only 8 points and 9 points respectively in each quarter. Luckily, the Falcons were not on a tear and the Dons were defensively strong. At the end of half time, the score was Dons 17, Falcons 26.
The Dons came out in the second half re-focused on the mission of beating the Falcons. For the next two quarters they outscored Foothill and held them to 10 points or less!
The crowd was going wild when in the fourth quarter the Dons tied the game up and then took and kept the lead.
The swarming of the court was amazing, so exciting and such fun. Way to go Dons! Final score: Dons 52, Falcons 45.
High score goes to Dons sophomore Goose Persin with 14 points. Right behind him was Stokley Chaffee with 13 points. Rod Hajian had a great night and 6 points. Ja'Maun Charles, Brandon Ruotolo and Scott Rasnick all got 5 points. James Charles put up 4 points.
