La Canada 68, Bishop Amat 57-- Robbie Neyland had 23 points for La Canada (4-0). La Canada held off Bishop Amat to advance to the championship game of the Arroyo boys basketball tournament with a 68-57 victory Thursday. The Spartans' Robbie Neyland made six 3-pointers in the first half, but La Canada (4-0) needed every one of them, and more, to fight off the Lancers (2-1).  The Spartans will meet Rowland in the championship game at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.  La Canada led for most of the first half and held the lead through the first four minutes of the third quarter. But midway through the third, Bishop Amat's Johnathan Haywood scored to bring the Lancers even for the first time since early in the first quarter. Haywood had been quiet for most of the game, often choosing to pass to teammates rather than look for his own shot. He finished with eight points, but his only score in the first half came on a thundering alley-oop off a pass from Paul Porter. Haywood did come up with the key basket to tie the score, though, and scored again to help the Lancers even the score once more at 45. La Canada's Mark Moore scored with 10.4 seconds left in the quarter to give the Spartans the edge. He started the fourth quarter with two easy layups.  Moore finished with 10 points and hustled his way to 11 rebounds, including several offensive rebounds that allowed the Spartans to find their perimeter players for second attempts beyond the 3-point arc.  La Canada made 11 3-pointers in the game. Neyland knocked down his seventh and final 3-pointer of the game to give La Canada a 54-47 lead. Porter and the Lancers were not done, however. Porter scored twice, including a 3-pointer of his own, to pull Bishop Amat within two. Haywood made two free throws to keep the deficit at two with 4:11 to play, but La Canada then finished off the Lancers with two more 3-pointers. Billy Hofman (17 points) hit the first 3-point basket. Two minutes later, Joel Kim hit another one to secure the victory.  Porter finished with 17 points for the Lancers and Kim had 10 for the Spartans.
