Kobe Paras effort falls short as LA Cathedral loses to top seed Torrance Bishop Montgomery
Kobe Paras' heroics fell short for LA Cathedral.

KOBE Paras scored 14 points but the effort wasn't enough to rescue Los Angeles Cathedral in the match against Torrance Bishop Montgomery, which posted a 59-47 victory on Wednesday (Thursday night) in the Southern Section Open Division quarterfinals.

Paras had eight points in the third quarter as he tried to mount a rally for the ninth-ranked LA Cathedral, which lost to the top-seeded Bishop Montgomery side for the third time this season.

“It's always tough to beat a team three times,” Bishop Montgomery coach Doug Mitchell told Los Angeles Times reporter Eric Sondheimer. “It's a good sign when you don't play well and find a way to win.”
