Orange Lutheran boys basketball makes its two league losses in a row for Mater Dei

Orange Lutheran was 1-30 in Trinity League boys basketball games against Mater Dei.

And Mater Dei had not lost two Trinity League games in the same season since the league was created in the 2006-07 school year, according to the Mater Dei athletics website.

That changed Tuesday at Orange Lutheran, where the Lancers beat Mater Dei 80-72.

It was the second league loss in a row for Mater Dei, which lost at home to St. John Bosco on Friday. The Monarchs are 1-2 in league and Orange Lutheran is 2-1.

The Monarchs have lost two or more league games in the same season only twice since Gary McKnight began his historic reign as Mater Dei’s coach before the 1982-83 season.

In the 1987-88 season Mater Dei lost twice to Bishop Amat in Angelus League games. In the 1997-98 season the Monarchs lost South Coast League games to Capistrano Valley, Dana Hills and Trabuco Hills.

The only other time Orange Lutheran beat Mater Dei in the Trinity League was in the 2010-11 season.

For only the 2nd time in school history the Lancers have knocked off Mater Dei! OLu downed the Monarchs 80-72. What a night! What a win! @SteveFryer @ocvarsityguy @ocvarsity @latsondheimer #OLuOn2 /// #WeAreOLu
