BOYS BASKETBALL PLAYOFF ROUNDUP : Saugus Produces 1 More Surprise, 59-56

February 28, 1987|ED HAGEROTT

After watching his team win its first three playoff games by a total of 12 points, Saugus High Coach John Clark was unsure of what to expect from the Centurions on Friday night. He simply didn't know how much more his players had left.

Afterward, Clark was all too happy to announce that he still didn't have an answer.

Greg Weber scored eight of his game-high 18 points in the fourth quarter to lead Saugus to a come-from-behind 59-56 win over Tustin (21-6)in a 3-A Southern Section quarterfinal at College of the Canyons.

Saugus trailed, 43-37, at the end of the third quarter but came back behind an aggressive defense and solid free-throw shooting. The Centurions (20-9) made 10 of their 13 foul shots in the fourth quarter, including six of eight by Weber.

This is the farthest a Clark-coached Saugus team has advanced in the playoffs.
