Redondo Union Battle @ the Beach
Etiwanda vs Bishop Montgomery 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.
8th Annual Mark Keppel Gary Houston Invitational
Sierra Canyon vs Mark Keppel 9pm
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.
