WATSONVILLE — The Mariners understood how important this week was as they chase down a Santa Cruz Coast Athletic League championship.

The Aptos High boys basketball team completed the week 2-0 by defeating St. Francis Central Coast Catholic 52-29 on Friday night.

After knocking Soquel out of the unbeaten-in-league ranks on Wednesday, Aptos (14-5, 6-2 SCCAL) continued the roll by casting a dry spell on the Sharks once in each half.

Aptos didn’t allow a point to St. Francis for the final 5:24 of the second quarter and the final 5:25 of the third quarter.

“This week was huge,” said Aptos center Cole Welle, one of the catalysts for the Mariners. “We had to beat Soquel to get a shot at the league championship, and we had to get momentum early tonight.”

Welle scored a game-high 24 points but had to scrap for most of his points, especially in the first quarter, where the Sharks tried to get to him early. He had seven contested points in the first as Aptos took an 11-8 lead after eight minutes.
