The Tritons hung close, 18-16, through the first quarter. But an ankle injury to San Clemente forward Luke Melby in the second quarter appeared to deflate the Tritons, and it was all Warriors from then on.
In the loss, Trevor Ankrom led Triton scorers as the only one in double figures with 14. Kai Hadsall had eight; Michael Moran and Jimmy Varos, six each; Jake Bang, three; Eric Ord, two; and Zach Cochran, one.
San Clemente will play in the third-place game of the Fountain Valley Tournament at 3 p.m. Saturday.
