Carpinteria Fights Back, Beats Santa Clara in Overtime

Carpinteria stormed back in the fourth quarter and make some big plays in overtime to pull out a 61-60 basketball win over Santa Clara on Friday night.

Jax Montgomery scored a team-high 19 points and Rayshaun Moore toss in 16 points to lead the Warriors (15-9, 5-4).

Santa Clara controlled the game for 3 1/2 quarters, coach Johnny Ward said. "Their defensive scheme and inside attack on offense had us struggling to find our rhythm. Credit to my guys for never letting the game get out of reach."

The Warriors finally took the lead in the fourth quarter. But Santa Clara was able to tie the game down the stretch and force overtime.

"In the extra session, we were able to get some stops and some big offensive rebounds to get back to the line. We sunk our free throws and held on for the one-point win," said Ward.

Aaron Vargas stepped into the starting lineup for an ill Eli Correa and played well, Ward noted. Correa came off the bench "and had some incredible rebounds and got himself to the line."

Ward also praised Terrell Richardson, Jacob Garside, and Malcolm Gordon for their energy and defense. "Malcolm Gordon contributed to ball handing and free throws while their defense keyed on Ray."

Brandon Jacobs was a force on the glass and scored nine points.

The Warriors are home on Wednesday against Nordhoff.

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!
