The Tartans entered the Christmas break with consecutive losses to Los Osos and Damien.

GHS got off to slow starts in both the first and third quarters, as the Scorpions outscored the Tartans, 27-15.
Glendora, though, enjoyed a 31-18 advantage in the second and fourth periods, to nip Hesperia.
GHS got double-digit scoring from Luke Jacobson, Noah Smith and Braydon Wooldridge.
