The Kimball High girls basketball team's playoff run ended with a 49-29 loss at Napa High in the second round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I playoffs on Tuesday.

Kimball coach Mike Granillo said the Jaguars (25-4, 13-1 Valley Oak League) kept up with Napa (26-1,10-0 Monticello Empire League) in the first quarter, playing to a 15-15 tie. Napa pulled ahead 26-21 at the half.

Granillo said the Napa team brought accurate shooting to the second half while the Jaguars had scoring opportunities but were unable to finish on their offensive drives.

It end the best season yet for the Kimball girls, who won the VOL title last week before heading into playoffs, which opened with a 64-25 win at home over Lodi on Friday.
