Two closely contested battles meant two different results over the weekend as the Dino basketball squad hit the hardwood. Carbon beat Canyon View 57-52 on Friday at the Emery tournament in Castle Dale and were edged out on Saturday by two points against host Emery, 54-52.

Canyon View and Carbon traded baskets for three quarters of the game, with the Falcons up by a point at the end of the first. Carbon came back and had a one point edge at the end of the half.

Tied up at 34, the teams headed into the final period of play, where the Dino offense stepped up and finished off the game with 23 in the final period.

Joey Keller continued to drive the Dino offense with 29 points. Dayton Martindale hit another pair of treys to contribute 10 points in the Dino win.

"We played better. We were living off Joey Keller's play in the post for the first half, then Dayton Martindale came off the bench and helped out. After our team got rid of their jitters from playing in that gym our shooting got better all around," remarked Coach Bianco. "We got a win we needed."

On Saturday Emery jumped out against Carbon by a pair of buckets in the first and took a 15-11 lead with Carbon letting the lead edge up to five by the break. The Dino offense was the more dominant force in the third and they outscored the Spartans by five to tie the game up by the end of the third.

It was a basket by Emery as the clock ran out that sealed up the loss for Carbon.

The Spartans shutout the normally productive Keller so it was Tysen Stevens that stepped up and led the team with 25 points. He hit three from downtown as part of his scoring explosion. Keny Seals was the only other player in double figures with 11.

"The team played hard. We had good defense and contained them well, but we need to do a better job of containing their guards," was Bianco's summary of the game. He went on to say, "Tysen and Keny had good games and it was nice to see other guys step up and help out. We have done some pretty good things so far this season. We need to step up and contain the guards and rebound for region play and we will be alright. We are looking forward to our first home games this week and hope we will get some good support."

The team will play their first home games of the season against Park City on Wednesday and Desert Hills this Friday at Carbon High. Both games will have varsity tip-offs at 7 p.m.
