Sun Advocate sports reporter

Down by two sets to Payson and with their backs against the wall, the Lady Dinos suddenly seemed to flip a switch. A burst of energy, assisted by the home crowd, boosted the team down the stretch including putting them in position to win the game.

Unfortunately for the Lady Dinos, the end result saw Payson slip away with a five-set victory (25-21, 25-20, 27-29, 23-25, 20-18).

Down 19-18 in the final set and with a chance to tie the game, senior Kayleigh Potts' kill attempt went just over the back line giving Payson the win.

While the loss was tough on the team especially after a comeback late in the game, Carbon High head coach Danielle Jensen said she was proud of the fight the team showed throughout the game.

"It's a loss for us but I'm really proud of the fact that we went down fighting," Jensen said after the game.

Potts led the Lady Dinos with a team-high 14 kills. Sophomore libero Katee Martinez, who Jensen said has been battling an ankle injury, finished with 26 digs and made a number of key plays down the stretch helping keep the Dinos in the game.

"She (Katee) was amazing tonight for us," Jensen said noting Martinez helps control the back row of Carbon's defense.

Despite the loss, Jensen said the team is showing signs of playing better as the season has progressed.

"We were really competitive tonight and we're still working towards our goal of making it to the state tournament," she explained.

Carbon (3-11 overall, 1-3 Region 12) will travel to Spanish Fork for a game tonight at 7 p.m. The Lady Dinos will host San Juan on Saturday at the CHS gym at 4:45 p.m.
