"We love playing for coach (Schefter), and didn't want to let him down," said guard Jimmy Varos after the victory. Varos certainly didn't, as his two made free throws in the final minute gave San Clemente a one-point lead. Then, when a Dana Hills player got two free throws on a call many Triton fans deemed "questionable," San Clemente's sixth man stepped up. A boisterous home crowd provided enough distraction for the Dolphins player to miss both shots.
Kai Hadsall led San Clemente scoring with 11 points. He was supported by a quartet of Tritons with six: Trevor Ankrom, Luke Melby, Michael Moran and Varos.
