Dos Pueblos came from behind in the second half and beat Santa Paula, 45-35, on Thursday at the Fillmore Girls Basketball Tournament to improve to 6-0 on the season.

“This was a good experience for the kids,” coach Phil Sherman said. “Our shots were not falling and we had to really grind out this game and earn the win.”

A determined defensive effort by Ashley Gerken and Lelia Chisholm sparked the DP comeback.

The Chargers tied the scored at 32 with five minutes left and they took the lead for good on back-to-back three-pointers by Sadie Subject and Gerken.

Dos Pueblos plays a strong Thousand Oaks team on Friday.

“It will be a good learning experience,” said Sherman.
