Pinewood falters in 4th quarter

Once the momentum swayed Woodside Priory’s way, it seemed there was nothing the Pinewood School boys basketball team could do to stop it.

Priory erased a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, tying the game with 12 seconds to play on an NBA-range 3-pointer from Ayo Aderboye. The 6-foot-6 junior then made a steal near midcourt and raced to the rim for a dunk with two ticks left, lifting his team to a 58-56 home win.

Games often don’t end well for basketball teams that make just four field goals in the second half. But the Mountain View High girls not only survived a 4-for-20 shooting slump, they actually increased their lead to beat Homestead 48-37 Friday.

Eighteen games into the season, the St. Francis High boys basketball team has yet to have everyone healthy enough to play on the same night. But as the Lancers showed Friday – with ankle injuries sidelining two players and limiting another – they keep finding ways to win.

St. Francis beat Valley Christian 66-56, improving to 15-3 overall and 6-2 in the West Catholic Athletic League.

The Pinewood School girls basketball team routed rival Woodside Priory 68-51 Friday night, yet the Panthers were far from satisfied with their performance. It wasn’t good enough for a squad with championship aspirations.

“Honestly, I think we could have played a lot better,” Pinewood senior Akayla Hackson said. “I think we shot 26 percent from the 3-point line – not the best – and also shot poorly from the 2s.”
