EASTLAKE 59, SANTANA 52

The Santana Sultans traveled down to the South Bay to take on the Eastlake Titans in a Grossmont Winter Tournament contest and unfortunately came out on the wrong end.

The Titans led early on behind Christian Buenviaje who scored five points in the first quarter as they outscored the Sultans 13-7.

Santana would turn the heat up in the second quarter as Dylan Finkey would drop 3 three balls from behind the arc as the Sultans would outscore the Titans 21-18 but trail 31-28 at the break.

Despite the five three-pointers on the night for Finkey he was held scoreless in the final period but Desmond Williams would pick up the slack as he scored 10 of his 12 points in the quarter.

However, both the double-digit scoring of Finkey who finished with 15 points on 5 three-pointers and Williams couldn’t propel the Sultans as the Titans outscored Santana 28-23 in the second half.
