Boys Basketball Roundup: Beverly Hills can not catch up to Serra’s speed at the Westchester Tournament
Beverly Hills had a surprising 29-25 lead on Serra at halftime and pushed the lead to seven in the early moments of the second half.
Then it all went down hill from there.
The Cavaliers sped up the pace of the game and the Normans broke down on both side of the ball in a 66-53 loss in the first round of the Westchester Tournament.
Beverly Hills’ center Ronan Massana had 12 of his 18 points on the first half, but the pace forced them to rely too much on outside shooting and away from their inside presence leading to numerous fast break opportunities for Serra.
Hamilton catcher Dalton Blumenfeld has committed to LMU.
The junior was named to the All-City Division I team after hitting .403 with five homeruns and 24 RBI’s last season, leading the Yankees to the Western League title.
He batted .434 as a freshman.
Here is the score for the single westside game that was play on Thursday, September 26th.
LA City Section:
View Park 26, Hamilton 13
Hamilton’s Kyshawn Richards scored six touchdowns as the Yankees rebounded from an opening season loss to defeat South Gate Legacy 67-0 on Friday afternoon.
Richards rushed for four scores including long runs of 48 and 40 yards as well as catching two touchdown passes. The junior had 163 yards on the ground in on only nine carries and 67 yards on five receptions.
It was the most touchdowns he has ever scored on the football field going back to his days in pop warner.
Most importantly, they wanted to make a statement after an embarrassing 20-17 loss to Windward last week.
Windward’s players were exhausted.
Their bodies battered from the three-hour football battle while using every person imaginable including the 17 freshman and sophomores on the 30 man roster.
However, no amount of pain could stop them from celebrating the biggest upset in school history with a 20-17 victory over Hamilton, Thursday afternoon
“This is the best first game we have ever played,” said senior Drew Bryant, who had 104 yards receiving and an interception.
Windward head coach Alvin Cowan was concerned about his depth and it did not help the four starters went out on the first two series of play.
“Felt like we were holding this together with scotch tape,” Cowan said. “We had everyone cramping and playing though pain at some point.”
With the size advantage, Hamilton seemed to have taken control of the contest when senior Janic Pablo kicked a 28-yard field goal to take a 17-14 lead with 8:30 left.
Then Windward quarterback Connor Simpson went to work.
Culver City pitcher Jay Sterner and Hamilton’s All-City catcher Dalton Blumenfeld are among the westside players that will take part in the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities World Series beginning this week in Minnesota.
Both players are represented by the Boys and Girls Club of Venice baseball teams that will try to sweep the senior (16-18) and junior (13-15) titles. Venice qualified after winning the regional championship at Angel Stadium last month.
There has been a mystery in the air ever since Palisades hired Crepsi defensive coordinator Tim Hyde as their new football coach in January.
Part of the reason is that Hyde is truly an outsider on westside were nine of the 13 head coaches are in charge of their alma mater or had been previously on staff at the school.
In fact, the question I get almost every single day from fans, players and coaches is what are they doing over at Stadium-by-the-Sea has if Palisades suddenly turned into a high school version of Area 51.
