HOLTVILLE — Exploding for 25 second-quarter points on near-perfect shooting, the Mt. Carmel High Sundevils girls basketball team posted a 63-50 victory over the Holtville High School Vikings in a quarterfinal CIF-San Diego Section Division III basketball game here Saturday night.

With the exception of that four-minute span in the first half when Mt. Carmel went on a 12-0 run, the fourth-seeded Vikings went toe-to-toe against the fifth-seeded Sundevils, who despite going 0-8 in the rough-and-tumble Palomar League had a 13-11 record.
