HOME WIN STREAK
he unthinkable happened late Sat-
urday night at Seaside — some-
one beat the Gulls. On their home
Yes, the Newport Cubs came in ranked
as the higher team, but it was still a shock-
er, as Newport snapped Seaside’s 20-game
home win streak with a 70-59 victory over
the Gulls, who had not lost at home since
It wasn’t easy.
The Cubs built a quick 17-5 lead and
held an eight- to 12-point lead for much of
the night, but the Cubs had to sweat it out
as the Gulls staged a late-game rally.
Newport’s Bryan Tapia drained a
3-pointer to give the Cubs a seemingly
safe 64-47 lead with 3:10 left, but Seaside
answered with a score by Chase Januik, a
3-pointer by Brayden Johnson, and another
basket by Januik brought the Gulls to with-
The Cubs missed four straight free
throws over the same span, and Johnson’s
second 3-pointer cut Newport’s lead to 66-
59 with a minute remaining.
But that was Seaside’s final score, and
the Cubs added four made free throws in
the final 29 seconds to secure the win.
Justin Plechaty scored 24 points to lead
Newport, teammate and tournament Most
Valuable Player Kye Blaser added 15, and
Tapia made four 3-pointers for 12 points.
Payton Westerholm had 18 points and
Januik added 16 for the Gulls.

too much to handle for the Seaside

Maddi Utti flying
high for Fresno State
By Gary Henley
If there was any doubt that Mad-
di Utti could play at the next level
… the freshman at Fresno State has
put that question to rest less than
one month into her collegiate career.
Over the last four games — in-
cluding starts in the last three —
Utti has racked up four straight
double-figure scoring efforts, while
shooting a blazing hot 71 percent
(24-of-34) from the field.
The Class of 2017 Seaside High
School graduate has also averaged
a team-high 7.3 rebounds per game
during the stretch.
State’s 64-57 win
Barbara last Thurs-
day, Utti scored
a career-high 20
points, to go with
eight rebounds and
two assists. She was 9-for-10 from the
field, and was FSU’s first true fresh-
man to score 20 points in a game since
Rosie Moult vs. Idaho, Feb. 10, 2010.
Utti is the first freshman to score
20 points in a game since redshirt
freshman Taylor Thompson scored
21 at Utah State, Jan. 8, 2011.
