The Tritons actually seemed to outplay Western in the early minutes of the game, but uncharacteristically missed a number of wide-open layups, and it snowballed from there.
No San Clemente player scored more than six points, which was accomplished by Nick
Crankshaw, Scott Herrod and Sam Darnold. Joe Mann had 5; Cole Fotheringham, 4; Cade Grffin, 3; and Austin Miller and Rico Young, 2 each.
The Tritons return to action at 4:45 p.m. Saturday vs. LACES at Tustin High School.
