Capistrano Valley Christian collects victory over rival SVC

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

MISSION VIEJO – Capistrano Valley Christian coach Zach Brogdon was animated on the sideline during his team’s 68-60 victory over San Joaquin League rival Saddleback Valley Christian on Friday at Saddleback College.

The Eagles matched their coach’s intensity and it showed on the defensive end, especially in limiting the county’s fifth-leading scorer, Trey Smith, in the second half.

“He is a phenomenal player, probably the best player in our league,” Brogdon said. “We put another guy on him and played a little Mickey Mouse defense as we call it.”

Smith, whose 14 first-half points had the Warriors (13-11, 3-1) up by two at the half, was limited to four points deep into the fourth quarter, and by that time the Eagles had a seven-point lead.

The Eagles (18-7, 3-1) surged thanks to 15 second-half points by Amazon Nwoye. Nwoye and Spider Adetunji provided an athletic advantage for the Eagles, getting to the basket nearly at will in the second half. Nwoye finished with 25 points.

When the game ended, the Eagles were swarmed by students who wanted to celebrate the Eagles’ first San Joaquin League win over the Warriors.

“It has been a long time,” Brogdon said. “(There’s been) a lot of blowouts, a lot of rough nights for us.”
