Round One goes to Edison.
The first huge game of the 2011 Sunset League girls' basketball season — between Edison and Huntington Beach — took place Tuesday in just the second game on the schedule. The host Chargers parlayed a big fourth-quarter run into a 61-44 victory over the Oilers.
Huntington, ranked fourth in CIF Division 2AA, held a 28-25 halftime lead over Edison, which is the top-ranked team in Division 1A. But the Chargers took charge late by outscoring the Oilers, 17-3, in the fourth quarter, to get the win.
Bonnie Samuelson had 16 points, Christina Marquette 13 points and Karlie Samuelson 10 points for the Chargers, who improved to 15-1 and 2-0 in league.
Kelsey Minato scored 15 points, Maya Kennedy 14 points and Jill Nakaso 10 points for the Oilers, who are now 14-2 and 1-1 in league.
