Carson High School girls basketball had a tough foe for its Senior Night on Tuesday, falling to Bishop Manogue, 88-51.

Junior Lauren Finnerty led the way for the Senators with 27 points on 9-of-16 shooting from the field.

The Senators’ lone senior Tarrah Borrowman put together four points and six rebounds.

Clarissa Quintana matched Borrowman’s performance in the points department and on the glass.

Alondra Carillo ended her night with five points and a pair of steals.

“We set some goals, which was doubling our efforts from the last time we played them. We achieved every goal, except our turnover count,” said interim coach Nate Tolbert. “I’m proud of how we played and what we were able to accomplish. We had one of our highest scoring games against the No. 1 team.”

In their first meeting, the Miners had 26 points in transition. Tuesday night, Tolbert said the Senators limited Bishop Manogue to 10 points in transition.
