Senior forward Marisa Teng scored 16 points Tuesday for Fountain Valley, but the Barons were edged by host El Toro, 55-51, in nonleague girls' basketball action.

Teng connected on five three-pointers for the Barons, who took a one-point lead (42-41) into the fourth quarter.

Senior guard Jasmine Matar and junior forward Emily Krause both scored eight points for the Barons.

In previous play, Fountain Valley went 2-2 at the Segerstrom Tournament and finished in ninth place. The Barons started the tournament with consecutive losses to Woodbridge (64-28) and Cypress (50-44), but closed strong with wins over Los Amigos (50-25) and Mission Viejo (66-40).

"Woodbridge overmatched us in every part of the game," Barons Coach Cory Clarke said. "After that game we couldn't find consistent play and blew a 13-point second-half lead against Cypress. We know that we can be good, but we are still learning how to play well consistently."
