In a game that determined first place and as to which team would take the title, Edison slipped past visiting Los Alamitos, 1-0, Friday to clinch the crown.

Edison got what it had hoped for Friday: a shot at first place in the Sunset League boys' basketball race. The Chargers, in fact, had three shots at a share of the league lead in the final 9.3 seconds of their showdown with Los Alamitos, but when the final buzzer sounded it was the visiting Griffins who were able to somehow survive. Two of the three shot attempts Edison got off in a wild and frantic finish at Dave Mohs Gymnasium bounced off the rim - the other was blocked - and Los Alamitos was able to escape with a 52-51 victory that would give the Griffins at least a share of the 2014 league championship.
