San Pedro High Girls Basketball Gets First Win Of 2012-2013

CUDAHY - About 368 days ago, the San Pedro High girls basketball team felt like they let one get away in their 2011-2012 home opener when Elizabeth Learning Center pulled a 52-48 overtime upset. Even Rita Fiorenza's dramatic buzzer-beating layup that forced the extra period wasn't enough to save the Lady Pirates.

Well... consider that loss avenged.

Fiorenza's all-around performance, combined with solid efforts from sophomore guard Mireya Ramirez and junior G/F Cheyenne Alvarez would propel San Pedro to a 72-49 victory over the host Bulldogs in a nonleague game.

San Pedro (1-1) would get its first win of the 2012-2013 season and led from from the opening tip wire-to-wire.

It was probably the best effort put forth by Fiorenza, the sophomore sensation, as she paced the Pirates with 23 points, but she was flying all over the court with 8 steals, 7 assists, 6 rebounds and three blocked shots. The most encouraging sign for the Lady Pirates on this day, was that Fiorenza got that well-needed assistance from her teammates in the scoring column.

Ramirez would score 17 points off the bench and contributed with four steals and four assists. Alvarez was also terrific by scoring 16 points and contributing with five rebounds. Senior center Miranda Diehm was an intimidating force in the paint with six rebounds and four blocks while also scoring three points for San Pedro.

Elizabeth Learning Center (0-2) would only get as close as 27-20 with 1:16 left in the second quarter, but back-to-back three-point buckets from Fiorenza and sophomore guard Emily Iacono would stake the Lady Pirates to a 33-20 halftime advantage, and then they would cruise from there.

San Pedro will next travel to Carson for a Marine League opener on Wednesday.
