• Breakers Cruise Past Spartans in Girls Hoops

    Jon Charron –

    Pacific Grove played great team ball on their way to their third straight victory Friday night, defeating Gonzales 44-30. [01-23-15]

    Assistant coach Bo Buller attributed the Breakers recent win streak to focusing on the defensive end. “We got away from that, that’s kind of our bread and butter. Last year was playing great help side defense and great man to man defense. We got a week of practice and it’s really paid off in the games so far.”

    Jessica Matthews, who scored 12 points for the Breakers, had 4 first quarter points. Including a basket at the buzzer that put them up 10-9 over the Spartans after one quarter of play.

    The Breakers started the second quarter on a 10-0 run, to extend their lead to 11. After Gonzales made a 3-pointer, Jessica Matthews stole the ball, which led to a Natali Baratashvili basket that put the Breakers up 22-12. Another Gonzales 3-pointer right before the half, cut the Breakers lead to 7.

    After leaning more on Jessica Matthews’ 35 points in Wednesday’s victory over Stevenson, the Breakers had a more balanced attack. “We have 11 good players and we got them the ball today,” Buller said. “Jessica is still our rock, and she’s the person we look to, but she also distributes and can do it all. She had a great game today, not as many points, but a great game all around.”

    The balance was evident in the third quarter with Jessica Matthews, Lela Hautau, Allie Patton, Christina Lucido, and Mackenzie Bell all scoring for the Breakers. After the Breakers extended their lead to 31-20, Gonzales was able to steal the ball from Matthews and score at the buzzer to cut the lead back to 9.

    The Spartans would not get any closer though, as the Breakers were able to go on an 8-0 run that was capped off by a Christina Lucido basket.

    Allie Patton finished with 8 points and 5 steals, while Lela Hautau added 4 points and 7 rebounds in the Breakers victory.

    The Breakers (10-6, 4-2) next play at Santa Catalina (9-3, 5-1) on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.
