Edison puts it together in OC/SD Challenge


Edison was at full strength for the first time in a long time Saturday, and the Chargers are a team to be reckoned with when they have all their starters on the court.

Karlie Samuelson, who had missed 10 games because of a sprained ankle before returning Thursday, knocked down four 3-pointers and finished with 28 points and her younger sister, Katie Lou Samuelson, made three 3-pointers and 26 points to lead Edison to a 75-59 victory over The Bishop's of La Jolla in the OC/SD Challenge at Santa Margarita High.

"Everybody is all healthy at the right time," said Edison coach Dan Wiley, who guided the Chargers to the CIF-SS Division 1A title last season.

Edison (16-2) came into the came ranked No. 3 in Orange County and No. 7 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports, while the Knights (13-5) were ranked No. 2 in San Diego County.

"That was a tough game," Wiley said. "We've been wanting some of those. We've got Troy next Saturday at our place, so that's a good tuneup for us. That's another good game before CIF starts up."

The Chargers also got solid production from point guard Geena Gomez, who made two 3-pointers, dished out 10 assists and grabbed five rebounds, and Monay Lee, who had 10 points, eight rebounds and three assists.

The Bishop's was led by 6-foot-3 sophomore Imani Littleton, who finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds and three assists.
