HS Girls Basketball: Great Oak Runs Over Temecula Valley, 66-28 – Wolfpack Faces Downey in 1st Round of CIF Playoffs

The girls’ varsity basketball team from Great Oak had only three seniors –Adrianna Carrillo, Abby Welch, and Roya Rustamzada — recognized at Senior Night, a good sign for the Wolfpack future. The Great Oak team had little trouble with the undersized Temecula Valley team as they came out shooting, leading 21-6 at the end of the opening period. Senior Abby Welch scored eight and Mikayla Williams had six.

The second quarter was more of the same as eight TV turnovers gave the fast-breaking Wolfpack offense more opportunities to score. Senior Roya Rustamzada accounted for ten points; Welch added another seven. The score was 49-17 at halftime.

The final score was 66-28 Great Oak. Welch led all scorers with 17; Rustamzada had 13; Williams had 12.

Alexis Collins was leading scorer for the Lady Golden Bears with 11.

Great Oak finished the regular season at Murrieta Mesa (13-12, 3-6) with a dominant 23-3 first quarter on the way to a 44-28 win to bring their record to 20-3, 8-2 in league.

In the February 22 first round of CIF-SS playoffs, the Lady Wolfpack host the Downey Vikings (14-12, 5-5) who finished third in the San Gabriel Valley League.
