Big games often are marked by pivotal plays, and none had more impact Tuesday then the shot hit by Montebello senior Michael Carrillo. After Keppel (15-8, 5-2) took only its second lead of the game – and first since the opening minute – on a Noel Madrigal three-pointer with 1:08 left in the game, Montebello (12-12, 5-2) chose not to take a timeout. The Oilers instead calmly walked the ball up court and tried to set up their offense. After Keppel kept the ball out of the key, Carrillo stepped a few feet behind the three-point line and appeared intent on passing the ball. The senior guard, however, caught a glimpse of the shot clock, which was down to five seconds, and lofted a 30-footer that hit only net and gave Montebello a 62-60 lead with 40 seconds left. “I never lost my confidence,” said Carrillo, who scored a game-high 24 points. “I had to make a play. As soon as the ball left my hand, I knew I made it.” For the third consecutive season, the Oilers marched into Keppel and pulled out a big league win in downing the Aztecs, 64-60. “We get excited about this game,” Montebello coach Marino Angulo said. “We love the atmosphere here. Every time we’ve played Keppel here, they’ve been in first place. So it’s always been big.” While the Aztecs have enjoyed an 18-3 record against the rest of the Almont League since 2004, Keppel was swept by Montebello this season and is only 2-4 against the Oilers over the last three years. Madrigal led the Aztecs with 21 points, 12 rebounds, three blocks, three steals and three assists. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
