Girls' basketball: Agoura routs Gahr in 3AAA final

February 27, 2013 |  7:11 pm

_2272974Agoura pulled off the first major upset of this year's Southern Section championships. Kim Jacobs made six three-pointers and scored 30 points as the 15th-seeded Chargers dominated top-seeded Gahr from the opening tip and cruised to a 60-39 victory at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Jacobs, a 5' 10" junior guard set the tone with three-point baskets to start each half. Agoura (21-11) was ahead 21-4 after the first-quarter and 32-17 at halftime. The Chargers led by as many as 26 points in the second half and Gahr made only one of 18 three-pointers.

"I think that first three pumped everyone up," Jones said. "We all thought this would be tougher than our other [playoff] games, but we got more and more confident as the game went on and they missed a lot."

Agoura finished fourth in the Marmonte League and lost three of its last four regular season games, but the playoffs have been a different story... a Cinderella story.

Brittany Mazal had eight points and nine rebounds, Noam Leead had six points, six rebounds and four assists and Sydney Bennett also had six points for Agoura, which made seven of 19 shots from three-point range. 

Senior point guard Jewelyn Sawyer had 23 points, nine rebounds and three blocks for the Gladiators (22-9), who were outrebounded 45-29 and allowed 24 points off turnovers.
