Cougars take down Dinos in pre-season play

It was a rough night for the Carbon Dinos as they took on the Union Cougars in Roosevelt on Tuesday. With all the calls going in favor of the hometown team, the Dinos let things get to them and had a good defensive effort on their part go to waste in a 56-49 loss.

Coach Bianco felt his team's frustration as they struggled against officiating that never went their way. The team let the wrong things get to them and found themselves down 16-3 by the end of the first period of play. The offense never really got going until the fourth quarter when they found their stroke and began to pull themselves back into the game. The Cougars stayed in the game by hitting 16 free throws in the final period of play.

"We played good enough defense to win," stated Bianco. "We were rushing things and our offense couldn't buy a shot. But everyone who stepped on the floor for us played great defense. We played some good man defense. It was a game where we got none of the calls, but you can't let that get into your head. We have to learn to play our game."

Joey Keller was still able to put up 15 points despite the team's offensive slump. Dayton Martindale remains hot from downtown with a pair of threes in the game for his only points.

The team heads down to Emery for a tournament this weekend and then will return home on Dec. 17, for their season debut on their home floor with a game against Park City at 7 p.m. at the Carbon High gym.
