It was a long time in coming, but the young Dayton girls basketball team finally broke through for a 45-40 win over North Tahoe on Wednesday.
After losing its last six games by three points or less, the Dust Devils, a team with all sophomores and juniors, were able to improve to 2-6 in the Northern 3A division.
"It's nice to finally get the monkey off our back and get a win," Dayton coach Desi Navarro said. "I'm just real pleased with our effort."
The difference of the game came in the second quarter when Dayton outscored North Tahoe 17-7 to take a 28-19 halftime lead. Navarro said his team did an excellent job on the defensive glass in the period, which led to many fast break points. "We were able to do a lot of positive things," he said.
Jessica Cantwell scored 13 points and Bridgette Galles added 10 points for Dayton.
