The San Clemente varsity team lost 51-54 to Newport Harbor in the Third Place Game of the Godinez Tournament. After trailing by 10 early in the game, the Tritons came alive and dominated the second and third quarters. However, the fourth quarter was a struggle, and down by 1 with less than 15 seconds left, a layup and two tip-backs by San Clemente players wouldn’t fall. After an intentional foul, and with only .6 seconds left, a final full-court pass and shot attempt failed, and the Tritons lost a winnable game to a quality opponent. Scoring for the Tritons were Jacob Nemeth with 18, Max Marshall 12, Anthony Smetona 9, Chris Kane 6, Jay Baggs 3, Nick Martino 2 and Mario Medrano 1.
