Another game, another win for Lady Dinos

Sun Advocate sports reporter

While it may not have been the prettiest offensive performance, the end result for the Carbon High Lady Dinos basketball team was the same as it was in their previous six games: a win. Despite struggling at points the Lady Dinos continued to do the little things necessary to win including playing pressure defense and diving for loose balls that helped ensure a 42-21 victory against Payson on Thursday night at the Carbon High Gymnasium.

The win extended Carbon's win streak to seven games, their longest winning streak of the season.

In their second meeting of the year, the Lady Dinos held Payson to just 21 points after allowing 19 points in a 59-19 Lady Dino win back on Jan. 10.

The Lady Dinos used their pressure defense to help gather 14 steals on the night, as seniors Miranda Averett, Regan Powell and Rachel Scoggins finished with four steals.

While the Lady Dinos faultered on offense, they made up for it by holding Payson to only 10 points in the first half.

Averett led the Lady Dinos in scoring with 12 points. Kelcy Otani added eight points and Amanda Freestone had seven points and seven rebounds.

With the win, Carbon (13-3, 6-0 Region 12) maintains their one game lead over second place Delta at 5-1 in Region 12 play. Payson (1-14, 0-6 Region 12) currently sits in last place in the region.

The Lady Dinos will try to extend their winning streak to eight games as they travel north to take on Spanish Fork tonight at 5:15 p.m.
