PASADENA – On an ordinary night, scoring 15 points in a half would not be a very promising sign. But the way the Westridge girls basketball team’s defense was playing, scoring was an afterthought. The No. 2-seeded Tigers (17-4) will ride that hard work into Saturday’s second round, where they will travel to No. 11 seed Irvine, a 39-37 winner over Riverside Notre Dame. “We haven’t been to the second round of CIF in my four years so it’s pretty exciting,” Tigers guard Elizabeth Chang said. Poor shooting prevented Westridge from getting excited in a first half in which they managed just 15 points to lead 15-10 at the break. “We came out really slow and we didn’t feel a sense of urgency,” Clark said. “Coach \ told us at halftime that we need to push it up and get better shots. We started converting more.” Clark converted to open the second half with a layup and a short jumper. Her putback of a missed shot capped a string of 11 unanswered Westridge points to give the Tigers a 26-10 advantage midway through the third. Clark led all scorers with 15 points, while Chang and Sharon Woo each had 11. “\ was a big goal for the seniors the last four years, and it’s exciting because we know we have great things ahead of us,” Clark said. Great things could come if the Westridge defense continues to dominate the way it did against the C-Hawks (8-11). “I knew coming in that they had a height advantage and we wanted to try to cause turnovers and get our transition game going,” Horn said. “And I must say, we caused a lot of turnovers.” The Tigers can advance to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1997 with a win Saturday. email@example.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4456 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

We could have won by more,” said Deschamps.“We did what we had to do, even if we relaxed a bit at the end.”The easy win was a good end to a night that started off in bizarre fashion, with the match kicking off late after the hosts mistakenly played the Andorran anthem, leading to the bemused Albanian players refusing to play until the right tune was played.“It was a big thing.

Having watched their side lose yet again in their third match in charge last week, the new Harps management team of Peter Hutton and Felix Healy will be hoping to end that run against Athlone Town.Athlone have also lost their last three fixtures and the sides meet at Finn Park this evening (kick-off 8.00pm).Harps currently sit bottom of the First Division pile without a victory to their name in 2011. And after watching his new side lose their first two games against Wexford Youths and Mervue United, Peter Hutton again looked on as they went down 1-0 to Limerick in Jackman Park last Friday. “It was the manner that we conceded that was again very disappointing,” said Hutton.“It was very sloppy defending from a set-piece where your man has nipped in and let go by a defender to head home unchallenged.“It was something we spoke about at half-time that the only way they would score would be from a set-piece, so it was very frustrating then the way they got it.”Result aside, Hutton was pleased to see that his team is starting to improve and feels the first win will come soon. “The performance wasn’t too bad, we didn’t start the best but as the game progressed we started to play much better. We had one great chance when Kevin (McHugh) went through one-on-one and opted for power instead of maybe going for placement.“We couldn’t fault the players’ efforts once again, there were positives to take. Young Aaron McElwee came in for his first start and looked unfazed while Gareth Harkin returned from a couple of weeks through injury to get a good hour or so under his belt.”So is Thursday’s game against Athlone a must win game for his side?“Every game is a must-win as far as I’m concerned”, said Hutton. “We’re not really looking at the positions in the league table, we’re more concerned with seeing an improvement in the performances and getting everything right on the pitch first of all.“We’re still trying to get a feel for things and seeing where we can improve the squad come the transfer window. Every game is going to take on more of an onus in terms of us trying to get that first win. Hopefully, we can get it very soon and get that monkey off our backs, allowing us to relax somewhat,” he said. As Harps look to end a seven game losing streak, they will hope to continue their unbeaten run against Athlone Town at Finn Park. Athlone have failed to register a victory in the last twenty outings in Ballybofey – a run that stretches back to October 1992.On the team front, Gary Whoriskey is back in training again, but Thursday’s game will come too soon for him. Conor O’Grady (ankle) and James Doherty (groin) will again miss out.Suspended: None.Doubtful: None.
