CHS girls basketball falls
The Carson High girls basketball team nearly overcame a huge deficit before Spanish Springs pulled away for a 51-35 win on Friday.
CHS trailed 16-3 after one quarter, 29-13 at halftime and 37-24 after three quarters but went on an 11-0 run to pull to within 37-35 with four minutes left in the game.
The Cougars, though, used their full court pressure to finish the game on a 14-0 run.
“I was proud of the girls,” Carson coach Doug Whisler said. “They battled real hard to come back from that deficit. We’re getting better every single game.”
Abby Golik hit four three-pointers on her way to scoring 16 points and Lilly Bouza added 10 points for Carson, who was without three key players. Tezia Boice was out with a strained back, Camille Kordonowy was out with a concussion and Bella Kordonowy has been out all season with an ACL injury she sustained last season.
All three are expected back when CHS next plays on Dec. 26 as it opens a tournament in Tracy, Calif., against McKinleyville.
