• Girls Basketball: Pacific Grove Easily Wins Their Tenth Game in a Row

    Pacific Grove continued their hot streak on Monday night, by defeating Gonzales 48-28. [02-16-15]

    The Breakers maintained their strong defensive play against the Spartans, making it the ninth time that they have allowed less than 30 points on the season. During these ten straight wins, the Breakers have given up an average of only 24 points a game.

    Jessica Matthews led the Breakers again in their victory, with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Allie Patton added 8 points and 12 rebounds, while MacKenzie Bell contributed 10 points.

    Pacific Grove will now look to their season finale on Wednesday night against third place Santa Catalina. Last time these two teams met, the Breakers won the tightly contested game 34-33.

    The Breakers however, have won their last five games by double digits. Including, a 13 point victory over rival, and first place Carmel.

    As of now, it looks like Pacific Grove’s chances of repeating as MTAL champions are pretty slim. The Breakers need to win, and get help from King City, who play Carmel on Wednesday night. If the Padres lose and the Breakers win, then they will split the MTAL. However, if Carmel handles King City like they did the last time they met, then the Breakers will finish in second.

    Still though, no matter what happens on Wednesday night, the Breakers will be punching their second straight ticket to the CCS playoffs.

    The Breakers (17-6, 11-2) next play at home against Santa Catalina (14-5, 10-3) on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.
