The tone of the game was set in the first quarter, when Oxnard outscored Dos Pueblos 22-6. The next two periods saw similar point differentials, while the fourth saw Dos Pueblos outscored by a relatively tame 8-4.

“We did a decent job against their guards, but we really had no answer for the post opportunities they had,” he added.
The two teams will meet up again on Friday, with Dos Pueblos carrying a 7-15 overall record into the game.
