RENO — Carson High opened the second quarter with a 17-0 run to wipe out an eight-point deficit and beat Wooster, 63-29, in a Sierra League girls basketball game Friday night at Craig Congdon Gym.
Carson improved to 3-5 in league play heading into Tuesday’s home game against Galena at 5:15 p.m.
Ivy Pembrook had eight of her team-best 11 points in the second quarter while Bri Alvarado dropped in five free throws to lead the surge and give Carson a 27-17 lead after 16 minutes. The only Wooster player CHS didn’t contain was Leilani O’Day, who scored all 17 Wooster points in the first half and had 24 for the game.
O’Day dropped in a trey to open the second half to make it 27-20, but Carson scored the next 14 points to take a 41-20 lead late in the third quarter.
“We attacked the basket,” Carson coach Melissa Larsen said. “We also played good defense and did the little things.
“We played a lot better in the third quarter, I challenged them to come out and play in the third quarter, and we did that. I was also able to get all the girls into the game which is nice.”
Mallory Otto scored 10 points off the bench, and was active defensively.
