And it wasn’t just that the Cardinals rallied from an 11-9 first-period deficit, but how they did it. Whittier’s suffocating defense forced the Lancers into eight turnovers in the second quarter and held them to just six shots. Meanwhile, Rick Kamayatsu scored all 10 of his points, including a pair of 3-point baskets, the first giving the Cardinals a 16-14 lead and the second making it 27-15. The Cards eventually increased their lead to 18 points before taking a 35-19 halftime advantage. La Serna coach Randy Villegas should bottle whatever he told his players in the locker room. They responded with a 15-2 run midway through the third quarter that featured Mike Acosta’s eight points and a 3-pointer from Eric Navarro to close the gap to 41-34. Zozaya had a three-point play and two 3-point baskets and was the only Lancers player who scored in the fourth period. It was his steal and transition basket that finally tied the score 47-47 with 1:10 remaining in regulation. Whittier then missed on three close-in attempts to win it in the final seconds. La Serna is 18-5 overall and 9-0 in league. Santa Fe is 19-7 and 8-1. Whittier held a 35-19 lead over La Serna at halftime, thanks to a 26-7 scoring advantage in the second period. WHITTIER – Eddie Zozaya scored 13 of his game-high 17 points in the fourth quarter to gain a tie for La Serna High School, and the Lancers went on to defeat host Whittier 51-49 in overtime in their Del Rio League boys basketball game Wednesday night. The win clinched at least a tie for the league championship and set up a showdown with Santa Fe, which trails by a game after defeating winless El Rancho on Wednesday. Zozaya continued his string of points with two free throws to start the extra period, but Whittier’s Michael Hudak tied it again off Kamayatsu’s assist. La Serna’s John Castillo missed the front end of a bonus free-throw opportunity with 1:18 to play, but a Whittier turnover set up Vinnie Hiatt’s layup with the winning points with 26.1 seconds left. Whittier had one last chance with four seconds remaining. Hudak attempted to inbound the ball from near midcourt with an alley-oop pass to Ed Kim, who had circled the perimeter to the backside. But the pass was too high and too long. [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
