Chabot sports roundup (Jan 9 edition)


After a wild roller-coaster ride of a week to open play in the Coast-North, the Chabot women’s basketball team is looking for solid ground in Week 2.
The Gladiators (13-6, 1-1) endured a disappointing 76-69 loss at City College of San Francisco (15-3, 2-0), and then rallied past visiting San Jose (8-9, 1-1) after trailing most of the game.
Chabot will hit the road for two games this week, visiting Skyline (8-8, 0-1) on Wednesday and district-rival Las Positas (6-10, 1-1) Friday.
The loss to the Rams was a crusher, especially because CCSF rallied late with four 3-pointers from an unlikely source. Chabot led by 10 points entering the fourth quarter, but couldn’t nail it down. De’Zire Hall paced Chabot with 34 points and 10 rebounds, and Tylore Bell, the state leader in assists, had a double-double with 10 assists and 16 points to go with four steals.
“We played really well and led for 35 minutes,” Chabot coach Mark Anger said. “It was a very frustrating loss for us, but we feel like we can play with them and we can get them next time around.”
Conversely, it was a feel-good ending against San Jose. The Gladiators found a way to win a game that might have gotten away the previous season. A hangover from the CCSF loss was probably in full effect in the first quarter as Chabot trailed 14-2. But sharp-shooter Aiyanna Gallegos drained back-to-back three-pointers late in the game to erase a 46-42 deficit.
Gallegos had nine three-points over the two games, including five against San Jose. Hall had her usual double-double with 11 poinbts and 13 boards.

The young Gladiators (3-13, 0-2) lost their first two Coast-North games, falling against CCSF 111-61 and Foothill 72-52. Chabot football player Amu Aukusitino had 15 points against San Francisco.
Elliot Harris had 15 points, 20 assists and five steals against Foothill. Marcus Booker had nine rebounds, and Dalvin Guy had seven boards and nine points.
The Gladiators are at Skyline Wednesday and at district-rival Las Positas Friday.
