Victory slips through Lady Dinos' grasp

A Tooele tip shot is just out of the reach of Carbon High's Annika Hansen (20) during the second set of a loss to Tooele at home on Tuesday night.

With a 2-1 set lead and a raucous student section cheering them on, the Carbon High Lady Dinos looked to be on their way to victory.

But Tooele didn't go down quietly as they battled back winning the final two sets to steal away a win in Carbon's home opener.

Carbon got big contributions from players including Annika Hansen, Katee Martinez and Shelby Cornforth in their two set wins, but errors and some well placed Tooele shots hurt the Lady Dinos in the final two sets.

Carbon will be looking to put the loss behind them as they will host Manti on Thursday (Aug. 29) at 6:30 p.m. at the CHS Gymnasium.
