Bolsa Grande Tournament Final Results--(Dec. 6, 1998)

Starting in reverse order, we'll pick up a couple of games which preceded the final. We may have done a couple of these on Friday, and we're just not sure. Here they are anyway:

Savanna 72, Santa Ana Valley 56-- This was a pool play game, but the Orange County Register was reporting it yesterday, so maybe we missed it too.  If we did, then here it is, if not, then you'll find this one was reported on Friday. Solomon Brown, a guard, and forward Alan Purnell each scored 24 points for the Savanna Rebels. Santa Ana Valley fell to 0-3 with the loss.

We know we didn't get this one yet, so are some Friday's semifinal results:

Guard Robert Abercrombie scored a game-high 30 points, 20 of them coming in the first half, to lead the Knights (3-0). Bolsa Grande fell to 2-1, and forward Brandon Jordan scored 12 points for Katella. in the losing effort.
