Open Division

The Open Division saw plenty of fireworks, as expected, from Chino Hills and Birmingham. Unfortunately for the Patriots, a dream season that saw them win their first LACS Open Division title ended after a barrage of points from the Huskies — 130 to be exact — sunk the Patriots’ dreams of a state championship. Chino Hills will face Southern Section Open Division champion Bishop Montgomery on Tuesday at 7 p.m., while Mater Dei lurks on the other side of the semifinals bracket with a date with San Diego St. Augustine and an eye on a potential regional final opponent. The Monarchs fell to the Knights from Bishop Montgomery in the Southern Section final, but could get a shot at redemption if the chips fall in their favor.


Mater Dei 74, Westchester 60

San Diego St. Augustine 88, Sierra Canyon 81

Bishop Montgomery 67, San Diego Torrey Pines 49

Division I

Fairfax had an unexpected performance from junior Shawn Booker lift it to a 54-49 win over Long Beach Poly, but the party ended two days later for the Lions. A meeting with top-seeded Damien brought Fairfax’s season to a close after a third-quarter outburst separated the Lions from the Spartans, who advanced to face Corona Centennial in the semifinals Tuesday. Centennial defeated Redondo by eight points to reach the semifinal. In the other semifinal, Taft will face Eastvale Roosevelt after edging Vista by one point in the quarterfinal.
