Lady Dino defense dominates in win

It was against a first year team, but still holding a basketball team to less than ten points in a game is remarkable. The Carbon Lady Dino basketball team did just that with a 41-6 whopping of Desert Hills on Tuesday night to open their basketball season.

Desert Hills controlled the tip, but that was all they controlled as Carbon forced them to turn over the ball almost every time they touched it. Swarming defense from the Dinos stifled the new, young squad.

For Carbon's offense, the rust of a new season showed as they struggled for a while to post a score. They hit for 13 in the first quarter while holding their opponents scoreless. In the second period the Dino added 10 more as Desert Hills finally broke the shutout with a bucket. That was all they could manage.

After the break, Carbon allowed another bucket from their opponent while posting 12 of their own. In the final stretch it was the Dinos with six and one more bucket for the struggling visitors.

Coach Carson had a chance to let her starters sit in the final portion of the game and see what her bench could do. Twelve different Dinos took the floor over the course of the night.

Patricia Smith led the scoring with 14, followed by Karlee Martino with seven and Julia Potts with six. Sara Potts came off the bench and pulled in six rebounds. Tia Pappas picked up seven steals.

The team players at home on Thursday Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. They will take on North Sevier.
