FALLBROOK – For the third game in a row the El Capitan Vaqueros come out on the right side of the scoreboard as they down Pruess 81-45 in the Grossmont Thanksgiving Tournament.

El Capitan again was able to throw their might around as they ran away early leading 21-7 after the first quarter and would eventually lead 44-18 at the break.

Randy Tucker who accumulated a double-double led all scorers as he had 25 points and grabbed 14 boards and blocked 3 shots and had 3 steals, Jacob Pfitzner scored 13 points and dished out 6 assists and had 5 thefts, and Harrison Morton chipped in with 10 points.

Overall the Vaqueros shot fifty percent from the field including almost sixty percent from two.

Coach Bickford was pleased with the effort “We started off 0-2 and ended on a three-game winning streak. Randy had the best game of his high school career tonight. Everyone on our team scored except one player. We had 2 Division 4 victories over Fallbrook and Preuss which is good for us down the road.”

The Vaqueros would outscore Preuss 37-27 in the second half and outscored them in every quarter of the game.

El Capitan continues their season on Friday against Pacific Ridge at 7:00 PM.
