Photo Essay: Boys’ varsity basketball wins a nail-biter to advance to the MCAL championship

On Feb. 7, the boys’ varsity basketball team played a highly anticipated game against the Archie Williams Falcons for the right to compete in the Marin County Athletic League (MCAL) championship game. The Giants previously played the Falcons last Thursday, taking them down by a score of 50-47. Redwood came out the doors hot, using fuel from their previous win to take an early 16-8 lead at the end of the first quarter. With the help from senior Jake Vasquez, the Giants were able to extend that lead to 34-15 going into halftime. The Giants were able to keep this momentum coming out of the half, finishing the third with a 12-point lead. But quickly, the Falcons mounted a comeback, starting the fourth quarter with 13 unanswered points to take a one-point lead. However, senior BJ Fisher quickly responded, hitting a three of his own to regain the lead. From there, the Giants did not look back, finishing the game with a 58-56 victory to advance to the MCAL championship. Vasquez finished with a game-high 26 points. The Giants will take on the Branson Bulls this Friday, Feb. 9, at home, seeking revenge for their previous two losses this season against the Bulls.
