Ocean View and Garden Grove continued on a collision course for Friday’s showdown for the Golden West League boys’ basketball crown with wins on Wednesday.
The Seahawks (17-8 overall and 7-0 in league) survived a scare, defeating Segerstrom 67-64 in overtime. That kept them a game ahead of the Argonauts (21-3, 6-1), who had an easier time of it, cruising past Western 71-41.
If Garden Grove wins, there will likely be a tie for the title, barring upsets. If Ocean View wins, it can do no worse than a tie for the crown, being ahead by two games with two to play.
Friday’s crucial will be in the OVHS gym. The Hawks prevailed 70-63 earlier in the season at Grove’s gymnasium.
Also on Wednesday, Edison moved into first place in the Surf league at 3-1 with a 57-41 win over Corona del Mar (2-2).
