SOUTH PASADENA — In a game dominated inside by the South Pasadena High girls' basketball team, the outcome was ultimately clinched by a clutch three-pointer that held off a valiant comeback attempt by Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.
The Tigers led by double-digits in the second half before the Tologs came within a basket late, only to give up an open three-point basket to South Pasadena's Amber Partida with 1:30 remaining in a 37-31 win for the Tigers in the South Pasadena summer league on Monday.
The pick-and-roll that set up the corner three was the bread-and-butter for the Tigers all game, as the Tologs had trouble stopping it. Partida attempted and hit both of the team's attempts from behind the arc, with the play usually going to Sophia Hathaway inside.
Hathaway led the Tigers with 12 points, with 10 of them coming in the first half. The Tologs adjusted in the second half, which allowed Partida to score eight of her 10 points in the final 20-minute frame.
