Washington works OT for 1st win

Stephanie Truong’s 3-pointer with 4.5 seconds remaining forced overtime and the host Washington girls’ basketball team outscored Oakland 6-3 in the extra period to win their first game of the season 48-45 Tuesday.

Truong led the Eagles (1-9) with 11 points, and Tierney Jones added nine. Tatanisha Brown scored 17 points for Oakland (0-5) to lead all scorers.

“[When Stephanie hit that 3], the girls went crazy,” Washington coach Vince Wong said. “The key was we never gave up.”

Sacred Heart Cathedral 69, St. Patrick-St. Vincent 41

Ki-Shawna Moore scored 15 points and Tierra Rogers added 13 to help the host Irish (6-0) defeat the Bruins (5-1) of Vallejo.

After St. Patrick’s Alex Cowling (21 points) opened the contest with a 3-pointer, the Irish responded by scoring the game’s next 13 points, eventually finishing the first quarter ahead 19-5.

The Irish, using a full-court man-to-man defense, continued to pull away against the Bruins in the second quarter, increasing their lead to 38-11 at the half, before cruising to their sixth straight win of the year.

This was Sacred Heart’s first game of the season without starting point guard Faihza Hill, who is out with a potentially season-ending knee injury. In a show of their overwhelming depth, the Irish got scoring contributions from nine players to atone for Hill’s absence.

“Our depth is our greatest strength,” Irish coach Brian Harrigan said. “We send 10 or 11 bodies at teams constantly and eventually we are able to wear them down.”

HALF MOON BAY — Dominic and Marseilles Stewart combined for 49 points and 26 rebounds in their season debut, leading the Cobras

(2-3) to a convincing road win over the Cougars (2-7).

The twins dominated from the opening tip as Dominic Stewart scored 12 of his game-high 28 points in the first quarter and Marseilles Stewart poured in 10 to help the Cobras to a 31-11 lead after one period. Marseilles Stewart finished with 21 points and led all players with 20 rebounds.

Piedmont Hills (San Jose) 77, Burton 56

Tyre’ Ellison’s 12 points and 11 rebounds were not enough to lift the host Pumas (2-5) over the Pirates (4-3).

Daniel Lindsey hit a 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer to bring Burton within 39-31 at the intermission, a shot that seemingly gave the Pumas the momentum. The Piedmont Hills defense responded, however, and did not allow a Burton basket until almost midway through the third quarter.

Devon Mynhier led Piedmont Hills with 24 points and six rebounds, while Lonnell Britton added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Pumas.
