Redondo Union Battle @ the Beach

Etiwanda vs Bishop Montgomery 6pm

Kimora Sykes
The Etiwanda Eagles and Sr. Forward Kimora Sykes have been licking their chops on defense this season. Bishop Montgomery will get a chance to test the shark infested waters tonight during the 2018 Battle @ the Beach Tourney. Tip set @ 6pm.

Etiwanda is on a mission.  The Eagles make you earn every single point, smothering you with pressure from baseline to baseline. 2nd year coach Stan Delus keeps his team focused and playing at an extremely fast pace,  forcing opponents to execute or else. The back-court running mates of Kayla Padilla and Kayla Williams (UC Irvine) of Bishop Montgomery were special during their 61-57 upset victory over #1 Ranked Windward (Cal Hi-Sports). Both will have to bring their A game if The Lady Knights have any chance of pulling out the victory.

The Pick:

8th Annual Mark Keppel Gary Houston Invitational
Sierra Canyon vs Mark Keppel 9pm

Jr. PG Vanessa De Jesus pulls the trigger against Centennial November 21, 2018. The Trailblazers will contend for a title this season but must take care of business along the way. Image taken during the 8th Annual Mark Keppel Gary Houston Invitational.

Coach Alicia Komaki and the Trailblazers are playing very good basketball.  The back-court play of Chevalier and De Jesus should be too much for Mark Keppel to handle. Both guards are playing at a high level but consistency will be a determining factor as the season progresses.  Alexis Mack is the X factor, as she commands respect on the defensive end of the floor.   It’s always interesting when the host team of the tourney makes it to the ‘ship.  Strange things seem to happen.  The Trailblazers will come away with the W and set their sights on their own upcoming tourney in early December.
