San Clemente also got double-digit rebounding games from Brad Ross, with a team-high 14,
many of them offensive, and from Aidan Butler with 11. The duo chipped in 6 and 2 points, respectively. Butler was hampered by foul trouble throughout the game
San Clemente pulled away to a 14-8 lead at the end of the first period. But complacency set in during the second as Laguna Hills chipped away at the margin to close within four, 22-18 at the half.
Then the Tritons exploded for 23 points in the third quarter, more than they scored in the entire
first half. They put up another 20 in the fourth, meaning San Clemente's second-half scoring nearly matched the Hawks' total for the entire game. Andrew Frohner with 9 points and Donte Harrington with 4 rounded out the Triton scoring.
The sophomores return to action in their season finale at 5:30 p.m. Thursday when they host Trabuco Hills.
