A tough new region and a team with no seniors could have spelled disaster for the Lady Dinos in 2009-10, but with only a few shaky games, the team has come through with a third-place seed and will now play Desert Hills at 7 p.m. for a ticket to go to the big dance.

Playing its final two regular season contests, Carbon easily beat ALA on Wednesday evening, 48-36, but hit a bump on Friday and lost the final game to Union, 55-38.

On Tuesday, the Dinos were only up by three at intermission. However, the squad continued to add to the total in the third. By the fourth Carbon had the game well in hand. With the win, the team secured third place.

Kylee Lessar had her best game of the season with 11 points and 11 rebounds and was named "Garbage Girl" for Carbon. Sara Potts led the scoring with 15 points, four rebounds and four steals and was named player of the game.

The Union was another story, though. Struggling in the first half, the Cougars found themselves up by 17. The Lady Dinos regrouped in the second half but the damage had already been done. The loss did nothing to change the standings for either team, however.

In the final game Tia Pappas recorded 10 points and pulled down six rebounds. The Carbon player of the game was Mariah Pollock with eight points, five boards and two assists.

Now the Dinos begin their preparation for the play-in game, taking on Region 9 second-seed Desert Hills.

Carbon Coach Cami Carlson feels like it is a good match-up for her team. According to the skipper, Carbon believes they can - and expect to - win. Carlson said her team has a positive attitude about the upcoming battle and if they play their game they should have no problem.

The one thing not in their favor, she added, is the fact the game is on the road and a long way from friendly faces to help cheer them on.
