Battle of the Beach finals set after tonight’s semifinals

Semifinal results of the Redondo Union High School girls basketball tournament yesterday and today have resulted in tomorrow’s schedule:

Bronze Bracket
12:00 Vista Del Lago vs. AB Miller (3rd place, Bronze)
01:30 Palos Verdes vs. Peninsula (1st place, Bronze)

Silver Bracket
3:00 LB Millikan vs Serra (3rd place, Silver)
4:30 South Torrance vs Redondo (1st place, Silver)

Gold Bracket
6:00 St. Anthony vs Bishop Montgomery (3rd place, Gold)
7:30 Inglewood vs Santa Monica (Championship)

Inglewood beat St. Anthony’s in tonight’s first semifinal game, 51-47. The Sentinels lead comfortably all game long when the Saints made a run with about three minutes to go, but Inglewood held them off. Senior point guard Hazel Ramirez had 19 points, and junior center Deajanae Scurry put up 12 points and pulled down 11 rebounds.

Pictures from the second semi – Santa Monica (dark uniforms) vs. Bishop Montgomery, are below. It was a fast-paced and exciting game for the first two quarters, and I think SM lead by two at the half. I left at that point, and somehow the score ended up being 63-44, SM. Perhaps they benefited from a halftime butt-chewing.
