• Breakers Get Revenge on Carmel in Girls Hoops

    After falling just short of victory a couple weeks ago against Carmel, the Breakers not only got revenge against the rival Padres on Friday night, but moved within one game of first place in the MTAL. [02-06-15].

    Just like the first time these two teams met, Carmel came out of the gates strong. The Padres took a 24-14 lead into half and looked as though they were going to stay undefeated in league play. The Breakers however, who have been playing strong defense of late, turned it on and only gave up 7 second half points to secure a 44-31 victory.

    Jessica Matthews led the way for Pacific Grove with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Allie Patton also got a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds of her own.

    Three weeks ago, the Breakers were sitting in fifth place, but with a strong defense, they have been able to reel off seven straight victories. Carmel, who was undefeated in league play must now watch their backs, as the Breakers seem on a mission to try and repeat as MTAL champions.

    The Breakers (14-6, 8-2) next play at home against Soledad (1-17, 1-9) on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.

    The last time these two teams met, Pacific Grove won 38-25.
