Douglas girls come back for win

RENO - The Douglas girls' basketball team trailed twice in the third quarter to a tough North Valleys squad but came back to pick up their first Sierra League win of the season, a 43-37 triumph in North Reno Tuesday night.

Jessica Waggoner led the Tigers with 20 points as Douglas improved to 7-10, 1-1 on the year and did the bulk of her scoring when it counted the most, putting up seven of those in the fourth quarter.

Sarah Hartley also hit 5-of-6 free throws down the stretch to help the Tigers put the game away and Douglas got four points apiece from Taryn Williams and Dany Heidt, three points from Bridget Maestretti, two points each from Kaela Horse and Nicole Didero and one point from Allie Hughes.

Aside from the gym lights going out with 20 seconds left in the game, causing a seven-minute delay, there were no real fireworks, thanks to the stingy Tiger defense.

Douglas next plays at Reno Friday night at 5:15 p.m.
