• Breakers Boys Basketball takes two out of three games

    The Breaker Basketball team had a very successful week, as they won two out of three games, including their league opener in King City. Last Thursday, Dec. 29, the Breakers traveled to Monterey to take on their local rival. Monterey prevailed 52 to 26, but the Breakers had several bright spots in their play. Defensively, the Breakers held Monterey scoreless for 5 minutes in the second quarter as they cut Monterey’s early lead to 17-11. Monterey had an 11-0 run to finish the half and took a 28-11 halftime lead. Pacific Grove was led by James Liu with six points, including two three pointers. On Friday, Dec. 30, the Breakers took on Harbor High School in Santa Cruz. The Breakers, led by Khalid Ismail’s 15 points, won 55 to 39. The team’s play was highlighted by a 19 to 9 fourth quarter run to seal the win. Sophomore Luke Lowell had 12 points, knocking down 3 three pointers. Junior Miles Cutchin chipped in 10 points and provided excellent defensive play. Sophomore Mitch Barr provided steady point guard play and strong defense. On Wednesday, Jan. 4, the Breakers started Mission Trail Athletic League play against King City High School. The road-tested Breakers made the one hour drive south and pulled out a gutty 36-26 victory against the Mustangs. The Breakers packline defense did an outstanding job of contesting shots and limiting the Mustangs high octane offense. Senior Khalid Ismail led the Breakers with 10 points, while Junior Miles Cutchin added 8 points. With the win, the Breakers went to 1 and 0 in Mission Trail League play. In the week ahead, the Breakers host their rival Carmel on Jan. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Next Wednesday, Jan. 11, the Breakers will travel to Soledad followed by hosting Stevenson next Friday, Jan. 13.
