Charter Oak’s Marissa Suarez scored 10 of her game-high 17 points in the fourth quarter, including the final six to lead the Chargers to a dramatic 47-46 victory over San Dimas in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 3A playoffs at Northview on Saturday night.
Charter Oak missed two free throws trailing by 3-points with just over a minute to play, but Suarez grabbed the rebound and scored. After San Dimas turned the ball over on the inbounds, Charter Oak fed Suarez under the basket, and she scored to put the Chargers in front, 45-44. After San Dimas scored, Suarez came back and scored again with 14 seconds left, scoring the final six points for the Chargers to go back up, 47-46. San Dimas had a chance to win on the final possession, but a lay-up at the buzzer rimmed out. Check the for story and reaction in tomorrow’s paper.
