• Breakers Keep Streak Going With Their Fourth Straight Win

    – Jon Charron –

    Pacific Grove used a 21-0 run in the first quarter to help them blow out the Greenfield Bruins 59-16 on Friday night [01-30-15].

    In their last two games, the Breakers have only given up a combined 41 points. “We tried to get better and we tried to clarify some principles,” coach Dan Powers said of his teams’ defensive prowess over the last two games. According to Powers, the most important part of the improvement is that “the team is taking pride” on the defensive side.

    Unlike the beginning of the season, when the Breakers lived and died by the scoring of Brad Sendell, the Breakers have had a more balanced team of late. In their last two games, they have had eleven different players chip in on the score board. Ball movement was key for the Breakers, as they used multiple passes on many occasions to find the open man.

    Midway through the second quarter with the Breakers leading 31-6, Zack Miller helped lead the way for the play of the game. Miller raced down the court after a Greenfield steal and blocked the shot, which led to a Noah Dalhamer basket on the opposite end.

    With most of the starters done for the night, the Breakers continued to keep their feet on the gas as they grew their lead to 38, at the end of the third quarter.

    “It was good to get home and get two good wins,” coach Powers said. Adding, “We got a big week next week.”

    The Breakers do have a big week ahead, as they will travel to King City on Wednesday, and then come back home for a rematch with Carmel. A game that could very well decide the MTAL championship.

    Josh Wren led the Breakers with 10 points, while Chip Wagner added 8 points and 6 rebounds in the victory.

    Pacific Grove (12-5, 7-1) will next play at King City (8-9, 4-3) on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

    Last time these two teams met, Pacific Grove edged King City in overtime 63-54.
