Carpinteria Can’t Keep Pace With St. Bonaventure in Second Half

Carpinteria stayed close to CIF-ranked St. Bonaventure in the first half, but the Seraphs dominated in the second half and beat the Warriors, 75-44, in a Tri-Valley League boys basketball game on Monday night.

The Warriors were down by only five points before St. Bonaventure hit a pair of three-pointers to to up 38-27.

"I felt good about our focus and effort in the half," Carpinteria coach Henry Gonzalez said. "The second half was a struggle for us as the Seraphs slowly pulled away."

St. Bonaventure (8-0 in league) is ranked 10th in Division 4AA.

Gonzalez said Roderick Hutchinson played well off the bench, scoring nine points and providing solid defense.

He said the team needs to step it up if it wants to make the playoffs. The Warriors are 2-7 overall and 2-6 in league.

"We need to put two good halves together the next two games versus Santa Clara and Santa Paula.  These games are pivotal for us to be able to make the playoffs. We look forward for the challenge," Gonzalez said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
