After three quarters, host Santa Margarita finally found the key to lock up Mater Dei's Maile Shimoda, which helped the Eagles rally to a 44-39 Serra League victory Tuesday night. Shimoda had 23 points and six three-pointers in propelling the injury-plagued Monarchs to a 34-24 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Santa Margarita tried a continuous full-court press to neutralize La Puente Bishop Amat's height advantage, but the Lancers proved to be capable ballhandlers and won, 56-49, Saturday in a Southern Section Division II-A girls' basketball semifinal at Irvine Valley. "I thought our press would bother them more, but their point guard did a better job than I thought," Santa Margarita Coach Richard Schaaf said. "I just thought we'd get more turnovers and we didn't."
