The game was the first for any Triton team this season, and the victory lifted the Tritons to a quarterfinal matchup at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4 against the winner of the Aliso Niguel/Santa Margarita game.
After a sluggish first quarter ended with the Tritons leading 9-4, they took control for good in a 21-12 second quarter. They were paced early by Dylan Hauser, who scored or assisted on all but two Triton points in the second quarter, with eight points and five assists. But that's all the Tritons got out of him, as he sat out the remainder of the game with a strained lower back. He is hoping to rehab in time for Wednesday's game.
From there Dillon Waikle took over the scoring load, and wound up with a game-high 11 points, which is more than Tesoro scored in any quarter except for the 12 it recorded in the fourth.
Aidan Butler and Steven Depallens each scored six points. Butler's came with a game-high nine rebounds. Chase Gutierrez had five, while Brad Ross and Lukas Katsandris each got four.
