Laguna Blanca sophomore Carson Stewart scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, including 10 free throws down the stretch, to hold off a Rio Hondo Prep rally for a 60-50 Owls win.
Stewart scored 34 points for the game.
Laguna Blanca maintained a lead for most of the game, until Rio Hondo rallied for a one-point lead with four minutes left in the contest.
Then Stewart took over.
“Carson put the team on his back in this game, scoring 16 fourth-quarter points,” Owls coach Phil Sherman said.
