The Carson High School girls basketball team continues to put together quality results, taking care of Galena on Saturday, 52-49.

The difference was the second quarter where the Senators outpaced the Grizzlies, 17-9.

“It was a close game. I don’t think anyone had the other’s number. I think we capitalized better on the officiating style. We drew a lot of fouls,” said interim coach Nate Tolbert. “It was clutch. We made our free throws in the end.”

Tolbert said Lauren Finnerty finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds.

Dahlia Keating and Alondra Carillo had eight and seven points, respectively.

As a team, Carson had 21 steals against 19 turnovers.

“Keeping drama out of the locker room is a big thing for us and when we play as a team, we usually find success,” said Tolbert. “If we can keep our turnovers under 20, we can be successful.”

UP NEXT: Carson (8-15, 3-11) closes its regular season with the top two teams in the league, taking on Bishop Manogue (20-1, 15-0) on Tuesday and Douglas (16-7, 11-3) in Minden on Friday.
