The South Fork Cubs won two of their three games at the West Coast Jamboree this week, placing third in the Topaz bracket in girls basketball.

The Cubs opened with a 50-28 win over Chowchilla, before falling 79-31 to Benicia and then bouncing back to beat Redding Christian 59-51 in the third-place game.

The South Fork girls, who had just seven players on hand, trailed for much of the final game before Summer Contreras and Caidence Young both got hot from 3-point range to key a late rally.

Young finished with a game-high 22 points, while Contreras added 18, and both players were named to the all-tournament team.

Kylee Cotter also had a good tournament for the shorthanded Cubs and scored 11 against Redding Christian, as did teammate Shawnessy Conway-O’Neill, who chipped in eight points.
