Cloverdale 54, St. Helena 39
The Saints looked to spoil Cloverdale’s Senior Night on Friday by continuing their hot shooting from their own Senior Night on Wednesday, when they scored 35 points in the first quarter in a 71-44 rout of Fort Bragg. But it was a different story in the opening stanza of this North Central League I game. St. Helena (11-15, 4-10 NCL I) couldn’t find its shooting range and went 0 for 5 from the free-throw line, and trailed 14-4 after one quarter.
In the second quarter, the Saints got 3-pointers from Ethan Battistini and Jonathan Gamble but still trailed by 10 at halftime, 27-17. In the third, despite threes from Christian Iano, Gamble and Battistini, they couldn’t get enough defensive stops. The Eagles took a 41-29 lead into the fourth, when – with a home playoff game on the line – they made nine of 10 free throws to seal their 15-point win.
Battistini finished with 11 points, Gamble nine, Iano five, Zac Flood four, Olie Russum and Nick Jeworowski three apiece, and Ryan Rockwood and Collin Darrall two each.
