Great Oak cruised to victory in their first round game of the CIF Southern Section Division 1AA Tournament. Downey was shaken as they ventured into the "friendly" confines of the Wolfs Den, AKA the "dungeon" by visiting teams.

The home town crowd helped rattle the visiting Vikings as the Wolfpack’s tough, aggressive defense totally shut down the visiting offense 20-0 in the first period.

Downey regained their composure in the second period and outscored Great Oak 14-12 but the damage had been done. The Vikings played tough basketball for the rest of the game but could not overcome that disastrous first period. Great Oak triumphed 57-38 and will advance to round two of the Playoffs.

Senior Abby Welch led the Wolfpack attack as she scored 20 points against Downey. Senior Roya Rustamzada scored 11 points and junior Mikayla Williams nailed five of six free throws on her way to a 11 point performance for the Pack. Sophomore Cheldon Alcantara’s ball handling was instrumental in orchestrating the Wolfpack offense.

Senior Kimberly Peraza scored 14 points as she guided the Viking attack against Great Oak. She scored nine points in the second period after the Vikings got rid of the visiting team jitters. Senior guard Nona Carter had nine points in the game.

The Wolfpack will be at home Wednesday April 25 to host San Clemente HS. The South Coast League Champions are coming off an impressive 55-46 victory over a tough Edison team.

Mark your calendars and come out and support the Wolfpack as they advance deeper into the 2014 CIF Southern Section Division 1AA Tournament. Game time is 7pm.
