Bishop Manogue went on a 30-8 run in the first half en route to a 73-48 win over the Carson High girls basketball team Tuesday at Morse Burley Gym.
The Senators fell to 3-10, two games behind Damonte Ranch, 5-8, with just three games left in the regular season. The only way for Carson to make the playoffs is to beat Damonte, Wooster and Douglas, and get some help from other Sierra League teams.
Carson scored the first basket of the game, but that was the only time the Senators were ahead.
“They are a good team,” Carson coach Melissa Larsen said. “They play aggressive defense and they all can shoot.
“We didn’t rebound at all and we were careless with the ball. Dajarrah (Navarro) played her best game of the season.”
Lily Bouza led Carson with 13 points, Navarro added 10 and freshman Abby Golik added nine.
Carson cut the lead to 10-8, but the Miners went on a 19-4 run to end the quarter with a 29-12 advantage. Ten of those points came after CHS turnovers.
The barrage continued in the second quarter, as Manogue scored nine of the quarter’s first 13 points to open up a 43-16 lead with 3:41 left in the half.
Manogue coach Craig Holt played his 16-person roster liberally throughout the game.

Vikings edge Dayton
DAYTON — Poor first-half free-throw shooting and foul trouble played a big factor in Dayton’s 37-27 loss to South Tahoe.

Tamia Powell returned from injury and scored 13 points. Aleea Howe added 11 points and four rebounds. Abby Sikora chipped in six points and Cassie Dickenson had four points, six rebounds and five blocked shots.
Mustangs’ rally stops Tigers

Douglas (5-8 league, 7-15 overall) now trails the Mustangs by three games with three left to play in the race for third-place, but leads Carson by two games.
The Tigers led 30-27 at halftime and 40-37 after three quarters.
