GARDEN GROVE– After Orangewood Academy played an outstanding first half to keep it close against the No. 1 team in California and third-ranked team in the country, Etiwanda pulled away in the second half to defeat OA 83-47. The Spartans only trailed by one point halfway through the second quarter and by seven at halftime, but Etiwanda, despite missing starting Ws Daisia Mitchell and Majesty Cade, turned it up to lead 55-42 after three quarters and win the fourth quarter 28-5.
