Highlanders suffer a critical setback

first_imgLa Habra slipped to 15-12 and 6-4. For the Highlanders, it was a game of short periods of impressive play mixed with periods of careless passing and some questionable decisions with their shot selection. “They made the plays at the end, and we didn’t,” La Habra coach Mark Stewart said. “Too many unforced turnovers. We have to realize the value of learning to take care of the ball.” Stewart also cited the impact of Troy’s stretch of 3-pointers. “Our kids had worked hard to cut the score to one point,” Stewart said, “and then they hit those 3s and it goes from one to 10 in no time at all. Thirty seconds later, Jonathan Lam nailed a 3-point basket and over the next two minutes, Jake Wagner added another and Derek Berkley made two to give the Warriors a 62-49 advantage with 59.5 seconds remaining. With the victory, Troy clinched the league’s second spot and improved to 19-8 overall and 8-2 in league. LA HABRA – A deadly stretch of turnovers coupled with a string of 3-point baskets by Troy High School proved a fatal equation for host La Habra, which lost, 64-55, in its bid to gain a share of second place in the Freeway League Thursday night. Trailing 45-37 to start the fourth quarter, La Habra battled back to cut the deficit to 50-49 with 4:30 to play, but then lost its inside presence when Dominique Moreno was called for his fourth and fifth fouls back-to-back and left the game. center_img “It’s disappointing because I think our kids played with a ton of courage in coming back.” Troy led, 12-8, after one quarter, and La Habra rallied from a 16-11 deficit to lead 17-16 midway through the second period. The teams matched 3-point baskets before Randy Nygren scored from behind the 3-point line and Kevin Pitzer scored a tip-in to bring the Highlanders to within 25-24 at halftime. The third quarter was when La Habra struggled most in handling the ball, committing 10 of its 18 turnovers, five of them during an 8-0 run that gave Troy a 41-30 lead with 2:50 left in the period. Sophomore Jordan Sach led La Habra with 21 points, 15 of them coming in the second half and 10 of those in the fourth quarter. Troy was paced by Berkley with 21 points. In the girls game, La Habra junior Whittany Radcliffe scored 18 points and had 11 rebounds but Troy’s powerhouse team rolled to an 81-29 victory. La Habra finished the regular season with 9-16 and 2-8 records. Troy is 22-1 and 10-0. roger.murray@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
