CHULA VISTA, Calif. – Scoring a season-high 92 points should get a team the win. But unfortunately for the Hawks, Vanguard scored nine more as the Lions defeated SDC 101-92 Tuesday night in an important game regarding playoff possibilities.
With the loss, the Hawks fall to 9-10 overall and 2-7 in GSAC play. The Lions improve to 15-6 on the season and 4-5 in conference, two games ahead of the Hawks for the sixth and final spot in the GSAC standings.
Mark Eden led the game off with a layup to give SDC a 2-0 lead, their only lead of the game as the Lions wouldn't relinquish it.
Down 6 with 2:24 remaining in the half, the Hawks closed the deficit down to one as Dunklin scored a bucket with 55 seconds left.
After VU scored a layup to open the second half, English converted on one of his threes to tie the game at 50-50. But the Lions then would go on a 9-0 run to set the pace for the second half. The Hawks would get the score within six with 10:28 to go. Vanguard would lead by as much as 21 in the half.
The Lions shot 58 percent from the floor. Zach Allmon led all scorers with 39 points and 16 rebounds.
The Hawks are back on the court against Menlo on Saturday at Grossmont College starting at 3 p.m.
