Conklin takes over for San Juan Hills

THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

Abby Conklin scored 22 points, and San Juan Hills shut down Tustin in taking the championship game of the Lady Panther Classic, 42-30, Saturday at Orange.

The frenetic pace of the game certainly warranted the two teams' appearance in the finals. In the first half, however, their shooting did not resemble that of a pair of title contenders. Tustin made just one basket in the first quarter.

The Stallions (6-2) would have mirrored the offensive struggles of the Tillers (7-3), but Conklin was on a mission early, driving to the basket with authority in scoring 16 first-half points.

"She finally clicked," Stallions coach Taryn Guillen said of the way Conklin took over the game.

After an early 3-pointer from Mersadez Barajas, Tustin did not knock down any more shots from behind the arc.

In the South Coast Classic:

Woodbridge 56, San Clemente 49: Kelli Robinson scored all 12 of her points in the fourth quarter as Woodbridge pulled away against San Clemente in the championship game of the South Coast Classic at Concordia.

Tournament MVP Sarah Lipton overcame foul trouble in the first half to add 23 points – 18 in the second half – for the Warriors (5-0), who broke a 34-all tie through three quarters to pull away for the win.

Woodbridge coach Pete Belanto said his team, which trailed 17-16 at halftime, missed Lipton while she was on the bench with three fouls in the second quarter.

"When she was out we struggled trying to figure out how to run the offense a little bit. We had a lot of younger kids on the court. But when she comes back, she gives the other kids a lot of confidence," he said.

San Clemente (3-2) held a 39-37 lead after Natalie Tye scored off a rebound with 6:40 to go, but the Tritons would not score from the floor again until the last minute of the game.

Wendy Shiga had 15 points for San Clemente.
