ELA COMES FROM 10 DOWN AT HALF FOR A 72-70 WIN, TITLE

CYPRESS (12-04-2016) -- Unbeaten East Los Angeles, trailing by 10 points at the half, came back to edge Palomar 72-70 on a Gloria Ortiz buzzer-beater in Sunday's championship game of the 34th Lady Charger Classic.

ELA advanced to 9-0 on the season, while the Comets fall to 8-2.

"We fall behind, tie the game and their ball with 4 seconds left," Palomar coach Leigh Marshall said. "We get them to take a tough shot, we don't rebound and they recover and shoot with .04 seconds left on the clock and win the game.

"Championship teams make championship plays and we didn't make them at the end of this game."

Roshell Lamug scored 16 points, Kaylee Puckett 12 and Christina Ellis 11 for the Comets. Cheyenne Ertz had 9 points and 8 rebounds. Ariana Hernandez contributed 8 points, 6 rebounds and 3 steals.

DEFENSE GETS PALOMAR 90-45 VICTORY IN TOURNEY

CYPRESS (12-02-2016) -- Palomar's women's basketball team played without two starters on Friday but still opened play in the 34th Lady Charger Classic with a 45-point victory over Santa Monica.

The Comets rocked the Corsairs 90-45 behind Regina Sheffield (19 points, 11 rebounds), Christina Ellis (14 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 7 steals) and Cheyenne Ertz (10 points, 5 rebounds).

Ariana Hernandez and Monica Todd each added 9 points as Palomar advanced to 7-1 on the season. Roshell Lamug tallied 8 points and Kaylee Puckett added 7 points and 7 rebounds.

The Comets (7-1) will play Orange Coast, an 88-74 winner over Grossmont, in a championship semifinal game on Saturday at 5 p.m. The Pirates have gone 6-0 since Palomar beat Coast 70-46 in the Pirates' season opener back on Nov. 11.

EL CAJON (12-02-2016) -- Palomar took a two-point lead at the half on Friday but dropped its opening game in the 45th Grossmont College men's basketball tournament to Moorpark 65-62 at Griffin Gym.

WRESTLING: Southern California Regionals

Comets take second in SoCal tournament

SAN LUIS OBISPO (12-03-2016) -- Palomar wrestled to a second place behind state No. 1-ranked Cerritos on Saturday in the Southern California Regional Championships at Cuesta College.

The Falcons scored 205 points to hold off the Comets' 171-point total. Mt. SAC was third with 148.5 points, followed by fourth-place Bakersfield (104.5), fifth-place West Hills Lemoore (81.5), sixth-place Santa Ana (74.5), seventh-place Rio Hondo (60.5), eighth-place Cuesta (57), ninth-place East Los Angeles (46.5) and 10th-place Victor Valley (31).

Three Palomar wrestlers brought home first places -- heavyweight Chance Eskam, 184-pounder Bruce Valdez (left) and 133-pounder Alberto Garcia (right).

Eskam decisioned Bradon Sotomayor from East Los Angeles 3-2 in the 285-pound championship match. BruceValdez defeated Cerritos' Bryant Vasquez by forfeit in the 184-pound title bout. And Garcia recorded his third straight pin of the day against Adrian Marrufo of West Hills in the championship bout at 133.

Defending state heavyweight champion Seville Hayes from Palomar sustained an injury in a semifinal match vs. teammate Eskam and in a huge surprise did not qualify for the CCCAA State Championships this upcoming Friday and Saturday at Victor Valley College.

The Comets got a second-place finish from Alex Gomez at 184 pounds. Alex Gomez (197), Chris Campbell (149) and Jake Schaeffer (133) took home third places. Eric Reyes (141) and Robert Garcia (125) recorded fifth places. Braucilio Banuelos (174) and Jesse and Jessy Diaz (157) both place sixth. Hayes, who attempted to wrestle back at heavyweight after the injury, battled back for a sixth place but didn't qualify for a return to state as Victor Valley's Jon Peterson was awarded a true sixth finish under wrestling rules.

Fresno City College, Sacramento City College and Chabot placed 1-2-3 in team scoring Saturday in the Northern California Regional Championships at San Joaquin Delta in Stockton.
