Sierra Canyon is 17-1, 1-0
By Jacob H. Pollon
The Sierra Canyon boys basketball program is well on its way to securing another Open Division playoff berth.
The Trailblazers won three games this week, including a big 51-42 victory against St. Pius-St. Matthias of Downey on Saturday night in Cerritos.
Bryce Cofield had 16 points, Noah Williams 11 and Isaiah Elohim nine to lead the Trailblazers.
The game was marred by 43 fouls called.
David Mack scored 17 points to lead St. Pius, Doug Langford scored nine points and Tyrone Riley had seven points.
Riley, a 6-foot-7 wing headed to San Francisco, fouled out with three minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Warriors were hampered from there.
St. Pius had beat the only team Sierra Canyon had lost to a few weeks ago.
Against Chaminade, Bryce Cofield was the “man” with 24 points, including 18 in the third quarter and six slam dunks. Cofield helped Sierra Canyon increase a 14-point halftime lead to 24 points and put any thoughts of a Chaminade upset bid to a halt.
Noah Williams scored 16 points, Justin Pippen had 12 and Isaiah Elohim 11.
Jonas Thurman and Bryce Goldman led Chaminade with 16 and 14 points, respectively. Chaminade was within 20-18 early in the second quarter before a 17-5 run created too much separation for the Eagles to tackle.
In a noleague win against Pilibos, CSUN-bound Noah Williams scored 18 points and Isaiah Elohim added 16 points in his season debut. Elohim had been nursing a knee injury.
Justin Pippen scored 15 points and dished out 10 assists.
Bryce James and Jayden Alexander scored 10 and nine points, respectively, for the Trailblazers.
