Amat beats Yosemite a third time

first_imgLA PUENTE – Each of the past two seasons, Bishop Amat High School’s girls basketball team used Oakhurst Yosemite as a steppingstone on its way to capturing a CIF State Division III title. Last season, the Lancers topped Yosemite in the Southern California Regional final. In 2005, Bishop Amat defeated the Badgers in a regional semifinal contest. The two teams met again in the Division III regional semifinals Saturday night and, for the third consecutive year, Bishop Amat ended CIF-Central Section Division III champion Yosemite’s season with a 55-42 victory. That puts the Lancers (26-5) two steps away from achieving their ultimate goal of claiming a third consecutive state championship. First things first, however. Bishop Amat’s next obstacle will be Santa Margarita in the Southern Regional final Saturday at 10 a.m. at Pauley Pavilion. Santa Margarita upset top-seeded Mt. Miguel 47-41 in the other regional semifinal. In Saturday’s win, Amat used a 21-9 fourth-quarter advantage to blow open a close game, ending the contest with a 16-4 run. Junior guard Kristen McCarthy sparked the Lancers, scoring 17 of her team-high 21 points in the second half, including nine in the third quarter to help erase a 25-21 deficit. Senior Candice Brown, who faced double teams all night, scored six of her 14 points in the decisive final period. She had 11 rebounds. center_img “I think they (Yosemite) may have worn down in the fourth quarter,” Lancers coach Richard Wiard said. “We were able to get more offensive rebounds and drives to the basket. “We missed a lot of easy shots, but you’ve got to give some credit to their defense. We were much better in the second half. Kristen did a lot of things that were key for us. She’s a very talented player.” Badgers guard Katie Menton also qualifies as a talented player, and Wiard had concerns coming in about the senior, who was averaging 24.2 points. Menton didn’t disappoint. She scored 30 of Yosemite’s 42 points, including five 3-pointers. She scored all nine of her team’s fourth-quarter points. She hit three quick 3-pointers to stake her team to a 9-4 lead. A Menton 3-pointer in the second quarter helped the Badgers match their biggest lead of the night at 19-14 before the Lancers closed the half with a 7-0 run. “Any time a team has a great player, and Menton is a great player, you have to be concerned because she can carry the team on her back,” Wiard said. “She’s (Menton) excellent,” McCarthy said. “The big players are going to get their points. You just have to make sure no one else catches fire. Our defense won it for us. “In the third quarter, we played more as a team and started moving the ball around. We got the ball inside to Candice, which in turn opened things up offensively. We really came on strong. “We only had 21 points in the first half and had turnovers galore. I thought we were fortunate to be up at the half.” With the Lancers leading 34-33 entering the fourth quarter, Brown opened the period with back-to-back field goals. Later in the quarter, McCarthy scored eight points in a two-minute span. Senior guard Amanda Alvarez had 12 points for the Lancers, 10 on free throws.
