on top for the first time. Crosby

Comets hold off upset bid by Coast
MARCOS (2-24-2017) -- Visiting
Orange Coast College gave Palomar
the scare of its life in the teams'
second-round Southern California
Community College Regional game on
Friday night in The Dome.
The Pirates led 15-4 late in the
first quarter, were on top with just
left in the game and stuck around
until the very end.
But a late 3-pointer from the left
corner by Kendall Crosby (left),
followed by a key monster block by
Roshell Lamug and two free throws
each by Lamug, Christina Ellis and
Kaylee Pucket in the closing seconds
made the difference as the Comets
(26-2) held off the Pirates 80-77.
Crosby led all scorers with 23
points and knocked down 7-of-11
shots from behind the 3-point arc.
Regina Sheffield scored 13 points
and pulled down 7 rebounds. Ariana
Hernandez drained 4 threes and
finished with 13 points. Monica Todd
had 8 points and 7 rebounds before
fouling out. Lamug and Ellis each
added 7 points.
Palomar, which defeated Orange Coast
70-46, 74-44 and 90-53 in three
regular-season games, will play the
winner of Saturday night's
Cypress-Moorpark game next Saturday
in one of four SoCal regional
championship games for a spot in the
CCCAA State Tournament elite eight
March 10-12 at Las Positas College
But coach Leigh Marshall hopes the
Comets learned something from
"Orange Coast College deserved to
win (the) game," Marshall said.
"They came out on fire and never
dropped off. They had some big-time
shots and I thought they outplayed
"We are supposed to hang our hat on
defense but definitely did not win
the defensive battle tonight. They
handled our press perfectly and we
were out of position and out of
rotations all night. We got lucky to
get away with this one."
Danielle Obong (19 points), Sarah
Nunes (18) and Chyann Pendergrass
(17) led Orange Coast scorers.
If Moorpark beats Cypress on
Saturday, the Comets will host the
Raiders in the regional championship
game next Saturday. If Cypress wins,
Palomar will be on the road at the
Cypress College gym.
