Edison Boys Basketball begins by defeating Marina – Orange County Register

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Edison’s 63-48 win over Marina in Wednesday’s Surf League boys’ basketball opener for both teams at Marina High School wasn’t too complicated.

The Chargers (13-7, 1-0) hit a lot of 3-pointers, got contributions from non-starters and played good defense, especially in the fourth quarter when they held the Vikings (14-7, 0-1) for seven points .

“The kids played hard all the time,” Edison coach Rich Boyce said. “Everyone who was there participated and I always say that. ‘You might get beaten and they score, but you have to compete at every play,’ and the kids competed at every play.”

One thing Edison couldn’t do, however, was slow down outstanding Viking student Barak Simon, who led all players by 27 points.

The point guard made scoop shots, reverse layups, and hit outside shots, including a 3-pointer.

“He’s just a tough opponent, not just for us, but for everyone in the league,” Boyce said. “He’s tough. He will be a handful in the years to come.”

While the Chargers couldn’t stop Simon, they held the rest of the Vikings at bay.

Marina’s Bodi Armstrong scored 10 points but none in the fourth quarter, and no other Vikings had more than five points. Three starters were held for two points each.

Kaz Hampton scored 11 and hit three of Edison’s eight 3s, but the junior said shooting 3s wasn’t necessarily part of the game plan going into the game

“It was take anything you can take,” Hampton said. “Open shot, take and hopefully you make it.”

Dylan Hugues led the Chargers with 12 points, all of which came in the second half, and Dane Johnson led the team with eight rebounds.

Cong-Ly Tu scored eight points, leading a 20-point performance by Edison’s reserves.

The Chargers, ranked 15th on the County Country Top 25, kept the Vikings on point for the last four minutes primarily by shedding offensive rebounds to retain possession, drawing fouls and gaining a new 35 seconds on the shot clock.
