Lancers From page 5 Christian. This game was played at a much higher level and I'm sure the fans appreciated that. This was a stressful game for the Lancers because they had three key players in foul trouble the entire game: Danny Jimenez, Jose Silva, and Ernesto Gomez. Jimenez and Gomez both fouled out in the 4th quarter, leaving Avalon with only five players. Luckily, Silva avoided his 5th foul and the Lancers pulled away in the end for 67-43 victory. Silva made 11 of 13 freethrows and finished with 15 points, eight assists, and eight rebounds. Danny Jimenez also had 15 points, and five rebounds. The game ball, however, has to go to Miguel Bonilla who led Avalon with 19 points and four steals. Bonilla played the best game of his young career, as did Harrison Hobbs, who contributed 10 points and 10 rebounds to the cause. The Lancers will travel to the San Fernando Valley on Saturday, Jan. 24 to play their next game against Vaughn High School in a non-leauge contest. The Lancers played Vaughn earlier in the season in the Catalina Classic and lost 69- 57, mostly due to many turnovers. The Lancers have improved in that area and look forward to having another chance at their new non- league rival. Avalon returns home to play three important league games against TVT on Tuesday, Jan. 27 at 5:30 p.m. and Webb On Friday, Jan. 30 at 4:30 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 31 at 2 p.m. Graduating senior Danny Jimenez will be honored in a brief pre-game ceremony before Friday night's game. There will also be an annual free throw contest between the Lions Club and the Rotary Club during the halftime of Friday's game. Please come on up and support your local basketball student/athletes in their quest for a playoff berth in the 2014-2015 C.I.E Southern Section Tournament. Show us some of that Lancer pride !
