SPRING VALLEY – The Monte Vista Monarchs beat visiting San Diego Academy 72-53 on Thursday, but something was missing for the Monarchs.

“Our energy wasn’t where it needed to be,” Monte Vista coach MIKE TULLY said. “It was lacking for most of the game. We need to continue to grow as a team.”

Still, Monte Vista looked sharp enough by the second quarter, scoring 24 points in the second stanza.

DEONDRE MCAYLE led Monte Vista with 21 points, while JAIDEN DAWN added 12 points for the Monarchs.

The aptly-named Jordans – JORDAN STEVEN and JORDAN BRAMER – both scored 11 points for Monte Vista.


CHINO HILLS 92, FOOTHILLS CHRISTIAN 74 – Top-ranked Foothills Christian has had a rough time at the BattleZone in Corona.

On Thursday, the Knights lost their third-straight at the high-profile tournament, falling to regional rival Chino Hills.

This time, a cut above his eye, kept him on the bench for much of the first half. FCHS trailed 49-27 at intermission.
