SANTA ANA -- Jessica Duarte had a season-high 29 points as second-seeded Mater Dei advanced to a regional semifinal showdown with top-seeded Brea Olinda with a hard-fought 70-61 victory over Hanford.

Duarte, a 5-foot-11 junior forward, was an inside-outside threat, making three three-point baskets to go along with several layups and putbacks.

The victory for the Monarchs (30-1) sets up a regional final against Brea Olinda, the only team to defeat Mater Dei over the last two seasons. They are the top two teams in the ESPN Rise state rankings.
