GBK: Royals rally to bring down Santa Paula

San Marcos locked down Santa Paula for the final five minutes of Wednesday’s non-league clash and claimed a 28-25 victory as a result.

The Royals held the Cardinals scoreless for much of the fourth quarter while Megan Cunnison, who led San Marcos in scoring with 11 points, sank a pair of baskets to lift the Royals to victory. Juliet Dodson added eight points.

It was a much different outcome than four days ago when Santa Paula defeated San Marcos 40-27. Now with the third win of the season under its belt, San Marcos enters the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions on Saturday.
