Last weeks loss to Emery was not the high point of the season for the young team from Carbon. However they also did not let it get them down, but instead used it to fire themselves up. The result is a two-game winning streak starting with a 46-42 victory over Juab on Friday. They followed it up with a 38-36 OT win over number one ranked Richfield.

In the Friday game the Lady Dinos built up a 15 point lead over Juab. But the Carbon girls eased up a bit and let them crawl their way back in. Still the Dinos held on to win.

Miranda Averett had the hot hand for Carbon. She took charge and was hitting from all over the floor and finished with 21 points including three trey's. She also pulled in seven boards to lead the team. Averett was the Dino player of the game.

On Saturday afternoon, the young Carbon squad had to face the number one ranked team, Richfield. The Dinos came out a bit tentative and Richfield seemed a bit cocky. Carbon decided they had nothing to lose and were put off by the attitude of their opponents. Suddenly it was an intense ball game.

The Dinos tied it at the half. Fell in a hole in the third. Then battled back. As the clock ticked down with the Dinos down by a pair, Sara Potts stole the ball and took it full court and hit a lay-up to send it into OT. Potts fouled out and Breanna Hurdsman came in and played some tough defense. Tia Pappas made some key assists to Mariah Pollock as she cut to the basket in the extra minutes and Carbon came away with a two point upset win.

Kylee Lessar was also crucial in the win. She hit 10 points, a block and nine rebounds. Tia Pappas also scored 10 points and she had five key assists. Lessar was named both player of the game and garbage girl for her exceptional effort.

Coach Cami Carlson was pleased by the turn around of her team. She said they had taken things to heart and stepped it up after several days of intense practice. She said that a lot of things had changed during the week and it was the girls who took those lessons and showed they had listened and learned.

"I hope they realize they can beat anyone if they want to. We need that kind of confidence. I hope they will continue to play like they did this weekend and this is a turning point for our season." Carlson concluded with.

The team will head over and play North Sanpete on Tuesday and then will be off until Jan. 9 when they take on Duchesne for their final preseason match-up.
