But Woodbridge got hot from three-point range, and San Clemente got into foul trouble. Starting small forward Joey Spurgeon fouled out in third quarter, and fouls hampered the play of starting power forward James VanGinkel until he was eliminated in the first overtime.
The two teams traded the lead thoughout the fourth quarter, with starting guard Chris DeGrazia scoring all of his 14 points in the fourth quarter and overtime to keep the Tritons in it.
San Clemente had open looks at the end of the first two overtimes, but they rimmed out. Finally, in the third extra period, Blake Birmingham and Isaac Rex hit clutch threes, helping the Tritons pull away and forcing Woodbridge to foul. The Tritons were solid from the free throw line to close it out.
Birmingham led the Tritons with 19 points, including three three-pointers. Rex and DeGrazia each had 14 points and a pair of threes. Spurgeon had 13 before fouling out; Ricardo Ashe, 4; and VanGinkel, 2.
