Parker Sports Wrap for the Week of February 20-24 "Playoff Edition"

Girls Basketball

Our girls were seeded #4 into the CIF DIII playoffs after compiling a 19-4 overall record. On Tuesday, February 21, the Lancers hosted Holtville in their first round game and came out with a 59-31 victory over the Vikings.  Sofia Carrillo led the way, finishing with 17 points and 16 rebounds.  Giselle Alota had 9 points, 8 assists and 5 steals.  Mackenzie Parker playing her best game of the year, finished with 8 points and 10 rebounds.

With the victory, the Lancers hosted Patrick Henry, on Friday,  before a “frenzied” crowd, in the CIF Quarterfinals.  The Patriots jumped out to a 12-8 first quarter lead.  The Lancers responded by outscoring Patrick Henry by nine in the second quarter to take a 25-20 halftime lead.  The game was close throughout the second half with several lead changes.  After being down by four with two minutes left, the Lancers staged a furious comeback and won 63-57.  Giselle Alota finished with 22 points and 7 assists.  In addition, she went over 1000 points scored in her Parker career.  Meredith Wiggins had 13 points and 4 steals. Sofia Carrillo scored 9 points and “pulled down” 10 rebounds.  Jula Harrington finished with 7 points and 9 rebounds.  Finally, Emily Morfoot had 8 points including two crucial 3 pointers late in the game.

The Lancers will travel to Lincoln on Tuesday, February 28, for their 7pm. semi-final game against the Hornets.

Boys Basketball

Our boys’ team travelled to El Camino for their CIF DI game against the #5 seeded Wildcats.  The Lancers fell behind 14-2 to start the game, but kept the game close after that by attacking the basket offensively and by “flying around” on defense against the taller Wildcats.  The Lancers cut their lead to three in the third quarter before ultimately losing 62-47.

The Lancers were led in scoring by sophomore, Jacob Jovien who finished with 22 points.  Jack Brady finished with 14 points including 4 long range three pointers.  Alec White also had 14 points and battled the Wildcats under the basket the entire game.
