The San Clemente Tritons JV faced off against the J Serra Lions in a re-match Monday night. The Lions must have taken notes from the first match-up. They managed to contain San Clemente's offense and take advantage of their size in the paint and some open looks beyond the arc. With the score tied at 15 after the first quarter, the Lions lead by 4 at the half, keeping San Clemente to only 7 points in the second. The coaches Montecinos flipped some switches and turned a few dials at half time because the Tritons unleashed a torrent of threes from beyond the arc starting with three from Nate Gerkin and another from Andrew Herbert for good measure outscoring J Serra 19-9 in the third quarter. Now leading 41-35 the storm beyond the arc continued but this time it was Andrew Herbert crushing any hopes the Lions had of a comeback with four threes and 16 points in the fourth quarter. To add insult to injury San Clemente only allowed 2 points from J Serra in the fourth in a statement win with a 65-37 final. Andrew Herbert lead all scorers with 27 followed with 20 from Nate Gerkin and 12 from Ethan Sherrell. Other scoring came from Monshietehadi (2), Carlin (2) and Tomlinson (2).
