Chino Hills Tom (he actually went to Workman), checks out games all over the I.E., tonight he was at Glendora-Ayala. Here’s how it went down
Despite a game high 21 points from Calvin Smith, Glendora fell to Ayala 54-43. Smith had 12 points in the second half but the Tartans were outscored 34-20. Ayala applied constant pressure to force turnovers and used an 8-0 run in the last three minutes of the game to seal it.
Ayala was led by soph forward Jared Ponce who scored 5 of his 12 points in the 3rd qtr, and led his team from a 23-20 halftime deficit, to take the lead 38-34 at the end of the 3rd qtr. Justin Scheerer and William Hougan pitched in with 8 points a piece for the Bulldogs.
The win by Ayala gives them sole possession of 2nd place and improved their record to 4-1, 14-8, and sets up a show down with Chino Hills (5-0, 19-2), who beat Chino tonight. Glendora fell to 2-3 and 15-6 overall.
