Bishop Diego outscored Carpinteria 22-9 in the third quarter and pulled away to a 73-35 non-league girls basketball win on Saturday night at Carpinteria Middle School.
Clara McDonald and Lily Simolon each scored 16 points and Elliot Redkey added 12 to pace the Cardinals to their third straight win.
“I was pleased with our transition offense,” said Bishop Diego coach Jeff Burich. “Clara and Lily did a great job running the floor and Elliot had several assists, getting them the ball before the defense had a chance to set up.”
The Cardinals got eight points and good defense from freshman Jiali Coronado, said Burich.
Bishop also knocked down eight three-pointers from five different players.
Carpinteria’s Jasmine Gilbert made five three-pointers and led the Warriors with 21 points.
“The second half got away from us, and we weren’t able to sustain a high level of execution on offense or defense,” said Carpinteria coach Henry Gonzales. “However, our effort never wavered and we finished the game strong.”
The Warriors are 0-3 on the season.
