Mission Prep had too much firepower for Dos Pueblos, as the Chargers fell 70-42 in a non-league boys basketball game in San Luis Obispo on Friday.

“Today was a very good experience for us against a top program like Mission Prep,” said DP coach Joe Zamora.

Dos Pueblos fell behind 22-12 in the first quarter but battled back and pulled to within one, 26-25, by halftime.

The Royals pulled away in the third quarter, outscoring the Chargers 26-8.

Zamora praised the play of Cole Collins and Ethan Parrish. 

“Cole Collins was active all over the floor, collecting rebounds, playing defense and scoring 11 points,” Zamora said. “Ethan Parish was thrust into a starting position and he did not disappoint us. He played a big role for us on defense and was aggressive on the offensive end from the perimeter.”

He added: “Kael Rillie, Joaquin Riker and Alex McCeney did a great job as well but, unfortunately, we were not able to sustain our momentum for 32 minutes,”

Dos Pueblos falls to 1-4.
