No slow start this time. The San Clemente Tritons JV met up with the Trabuco Hills Mustangs in a semi-final matchup Thursday night. The Tritons opened with a mix of offensive and defensive weapons ready to face the fast running Mustangs. The Mustangs like to run. The Tritons crushed that. The Tritons like to shoot. They did. At the end of the first quarter the lead was 10 with San Clemente up 17-7. Trabuco Hills, not to be contained, returned the favor and chomped away at the Triton lead to come within 4 by halftime trailing San Clemente 27-23. An explosive third quarter from the Tritons both in the paint and beyond the arc broke the game open.

At the end of the third quarter San Clemente saw it's lead extended to 14 leading 48-34. The Triton defense was there whenever the Mustangs tried to break free.
