Ocean View overpowers Segerstrom in league opener

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

SANTA ANA – Ocean View opened Golden West League play with an 87-51 victory at Segerstrom on Friday night.

The Seahawks (13-4) controlled the game almost from the start, but the Jaguars (10-6) hung around for most of the first quarter. However, 12 first-quarter points from sophomore guard Paul Head and the team shooting 8 of 8 from the free-throw line enabled Ocean View to take a 29-17 lead after the opening quarter.

Four Ocean View scorers finished in double-figures – Head had 18 points, senior forward Christian Anderson and sophomore guard Bryson Betti both had 15 and senior guard Zamir Kelly finished with 17 despite not scoring in the first quarter.

Junior center Isaiah Bolden-Robinson, one of Segerstrom’s top scorers, was held scoreless, thanks in large part to Kelly.

“(The game plan was to) make (Bolden-Robinson) work for everything, that’s why we put Zamir on him,” Ocean View co-head coach Roger Holmes said. “(Kelly) is quick and fast. He’s a little smaller, but he’s just real strong. … We had a lot of help on the inside. (Sophomore center) Mehkel Harvey blocked some shots inside, too.”

Kelly, Harvey and the rest of the Seahawks frustrated Bolden-Robinson throughout, namely when he was blocked twice in one possession on two occasions. He finished 0 for 10 from the field.

Segerstrom’s frustration peaked in the second quarter against Ocean View’s full-court press. The Jaguars turned over the ball three times before they could get past half court.

Senior forward Chris Rios and sophomore guard Abraham Negrete led the Jaguars with 11 points each.

Senior forward Jordan Petty hit three straight field goals in the fourth quarter and finished with nine points. Senior forward Andre Reynolds, the first Seahawk off the bench, scored eight.
