Prep roundup: Carson girls fall against McQueen
McQueen outscored Carson 14-4 in the fourth quarter, and that was the key to the Lancers’ 45-36 Northern Division I crossover game Friday night at Morse Burley Gym.
The loss dropped Carson to 2-4. The Senators host Damonte Ranch Tuesday at 5:15 in their first Sierra League game of the season.
Thanks to 10 points by Ivy Pembrook, Carson led 32-31 after three periods. A putback and 3-pointer by Melissa Glanzmann put Carson ahead entering the final eight minutes of action.
The Lancers quickly took control with an 8-2 run in the first 5 1/2 minutes of the final period, and CHS never recovered. McQueen knocked in six free throws in the final 26 seconds to extend its 39-36 lead. CHS turned the ball over five times and missed its only field-goal attempt in that span.
“I thought we played a good game, but we just ran out of energy,” CHS coach Melissa Larsen said. “We played better in the third quarter tonight than we have been, but we still have to cut down our turnovers. The kids worked hard and never gave up.
“McQueen played a good game and hit some key shots.”
Bri Alvarado added six points for CHS, while Andrea Maffei added five points.
