With less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter South Pasadena forced three straight turnovers and scored 10 unanswered points to take a 68-56 win over Temple City Wednesday night at Temple City High School.
“We just hunkered down on defense,” said Tigers head coach David Lutzeier. “It was a lot of good defense stops mixed with great shooting.”
“South Pasadena came out with a lot of energy, they made shots and I don’t think we were ready to play,” said Rams head coach Eric Chin. “They played well and it’s a learning experience for us.”
South Pas jumped out to a quick 18-9 lead at the end of the first quarter with all five starters scoring at least once. The trend continued throughout the second and most of the third quarter.
Temple City was able to make a run and scored 22-points in the third. Rams guard Goren Lee scored a team high seven points in the period. Lee lead TC in scoring with 16-points.
South Pas was led by Kyler Lee’s game high 20 points.
With the win, the Tigers (9-8, 4-3) are now tied for second with the Rams (13-8, 5-2) and two games behind La Canãda for first place.
