MPS went back to the first string unit to start the second half and Kacey Monahan scored his milestone on a trey. He led the team with 11 points while 8th grader, Slavik Sukhostev added 10 points respectively. Senior Dylan Christoffels finished his basketball career for MPS with 1,066 points. It was a great honor to see two players hit their milestone in the same season. Only one player will leave the team next year and MPS boys basketball looks promising and brighter for next season.

fremontLaytonsville 44 Fremont 31 - NCS Division 6 Semifinals

The road to the North Coast Section Championship game was 193 miles away from 39350 Gallaudet Drive to play #2 Laytonville (24-3) at their home court. It was a tough playoff environment for us to be in and Laytonville started fast by having a 9-2 lead. We finished the quarter on a 5-3 run to make it 12-7.

We could not have picked a worse time to have our worst quarter of the season as Laytonville outscored us 16-1 to make it 28-8 at the half. The team had no answer to everything they did on defense. We missed open shots, free-throws, and made uncharacteristic turnovers which left us 20 points behind. Laytonville played slow and used every second of the shot clock wisely while getting 10 points on fast breaks and second-chance put-backs.

Our team was not going down without a fight, and tried our best to stage a comeback but Laytonville kept pace with us. We managed to get three of their starters in foul trouble early in the third quarter but their backups stepped up big time and handled themselves well.

In the end, we ran out of time and Laytonville earned their way into the CIF NCS Championship game, snapping our 14-game win streak. They will play #1 Rincon Valley Christian (Santa Rosa) this Saturday. RVC defeated our long-time rival #4 Emery 56-48.

What made this loss difficult was knowing that we outscored Laytonville 23-16 in the second half, Not counting the second quarter, we had a 30-28 point advantage over them in three quarters. We did not help our efforts any bit as we shot 9-25 from the free-throw line and 10-47 from the field.

However our 24-7 season is not over, as we have qualified for the 8-team NorCal State Division 6 Playoffs which is a tougher bracket. It is quite an achievement as we are considered top 8 of 76 Division 6 schools in NorCal and SoCal.

We will find out our seeding and matchup by Sunday, March 4 and play the first round game on Wednesday, March 7.
