In a battle of section leaders, Section 3-A co-leader California earned a 49-41 victory over Section 4-A leader Serra Catholic. The victory snapped Serra's three-game winning streak.
Lyndsey Huhn led the balanced Trojans with 15 points. Katie Sieg led Serra with 14 points and Erin Palmer added 10.
California improved its overall record to 6-1 with the victory, their sixth victory in a row. The Trojans' only loss came in the season opener to Mars, 71-49, in the Slippery Rock Tournament. California hosts section rival West Greene at 6:15 p.m. today, and then meets South Allegheny, Carmichaels and Charleroi in the California Holiday Tournament on Friday, Saturday and a week from today, respectively.
Serra lost four starters from its team that played in the WPIAL Class A championship game last March. Recently, the Eagles have been beset by injuries. But Saturday's setback, however, didn't affect the Eagles' section results as they sit atop Section 4-A with a 2-0 record following double-digit victories over Winchester Thurston (48-37) and Imani Christian (67-44).
