Fish hits clutch kick to bring Redwood to rare win over Branson
The Redwood High boys’ basketball team have played against Eternal Power Branson on several occasions over the past four seasons – including a pair of one-point losses in the MCAL playoffs – but didn’t had not yet won a victory. That changed this week in part because of a clutch performance from the second Ains Fish.
Elsewhere, the San Marino sniper was on target downtown to help the Mustangs to a 3-0 week long. San Domenico footballers and Archie Williams scored in clusters to help guide their teams to victory.
The record-setting triple jumper from Terra Linda broke the county mark just a week after posting the best distance in school history.
