Monday's Other Results Around SoCal--(Dec. 2, 1998)

Monday, we published that insanely long list of games and tournaments, never thinking for a minute that we'd possibly find much information the next day on the results. We only managed to get scattered results for the many games played Monday, and actually by week's end may have a more complete picture once we are able to get all of the box scores for the season openers.  For now though, here's what we have:

Loara Tournament:

Loara 64, Esperanza 62--Loara's Trevor Holton hit a 17-foot shot with 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter to clinch a 64-62 victory over Esperanza in the first round of the National Sports Grill boys' basketball tournament Monday at Loara.  Holton's shot gave Loara a 64-60 lead. Esperanza rallied from a 53-41 deficit going into the fourth but missed a shot at the buzzer. Esperanza's Patrick Lefler had 17 points and Jonathon Steven 16.  Herbert Garcia scored 13 points for Loara (1-0).

Woodbridge 72, Lakewood 38--Brent Weiss scored 18 points and Josh Burgess had 12 to lead Woodbridge (1-0) in the first round.
