VIDEOS: Etiwanda girls basketball advances to CIF-SS championship game

Etiwanda never trailed in the game, or was even tied, although Millikan twice whittled down the deficit to a single possession (32-31 in the second quarter, 53-51 in the fourth), but could never get over the hump.

Etiwanda junior Dominique McLaughlin, speaking above, is the sister of Jordan McLaughlin. Normally, you’d think the McLaughlin family would be distracted Wednesday with Jordan’s USC team playing UCLA. But Jordan was out with an injury, allowing the family to presumably concentrate on Dominique.

CIF State Wrestling brackets: San Bernardino County wrestlers highlighted

And yes, I know the name of Rancho Cucamonga’s Cody Fahamokioa’s name is misspelled on the 220 bracket. Really, CIF, is it that hard to spell?

Is a 26-0 game in soccer excessive?

What constitutes an excessive blowout that crosses the line for good sportsmanship?
Earlier this season, the discussion was about Arroyo Valley girls basketball’s 161-2 win over Bloomington.
While it doesn’t involve a local team, but what about Hemet Tahquitz’s 26-0 boys soccer victory over Los Angeles Summit View West?
Which is worse? Well, the girls basketball game probably should never have been scheduled by the athletic directors, but the soccer was a Division 5 playoff game.
The girls basketball score was 104-0 at halftime, and the leading scorer in the game, Tamera Trigg, scored 43 points compared to her season average of about 27.
In the boys soccer game, it wasn’t reported what the score was at halftime.   Marcos Rojo led the way for Tahquitz with seven goals. He had scored only 11 on the season before that. But the team had 14 different players score goals, and two others had assists.
So are they both bad? And if so, which is worse? To be honest, I’d really need to see tape of both games. I’m sure something could’ve been done in both instances to hold the game down a little, but I don’t exactly know how excessive it was.
I once reported about the aftermath of a game now nearly 20 years ago, a girls soccer game between Bonita and Ganesha. I believe the final score was 19-0 in favor of Bonita, in a league game. The problem was, the  coach left his star player, Kendra Payne, in the game for too long and she set a CIF-SS record with 13 goals in the game (which I believe still stands).  The consensus seemed to be that this was excessive, because they were scoring goals just so Payne could get the record.
But 26-0 and 161-2? Whether excessive or not, it didn’t do the winning teams much good. Arroyo Valley girls basketball lost in the first round of the playoffs, while Tahquitz lost in the next round to Rialto. Did those teams get what they deserved? Some might say so, but I don’t think so, just that playing that kind of opponent isn’t really going to help in the long (or short) run.
