Stansbury girls drop two games

After trailing by 21 points at halftime, 23 points after three quarters and 16 points with under 2 minutes left in a home game on Friday, Jan. 21, Stansbury made a ho-hum game against Uintah somewhat interesting in the final 2 minutes.

Brooke Jensen scored a bucket to slice the lead to 51-39 with 1:32 remaining in the game. The Stallions got the ball back and Jensen was fouled. She hit one foul shot to make it 51-40 with 1:03 to go.

After a steal, Lola Gardner sank a foul shot followed by another steal from Jensen and a layup to cut the lead to 51-43 with 38 seconds remaining. Phoenix Ludwig knocked down a 13-foot jumper to cut the lead down to 51-45 with 17.5 seconds remaining. 

Both teams had emptied their benches in the final 2 minutes, but the Stallions’ full-court press created havoc for Uintah’s subs. The Utes needed to put their starters back in to close out the final 1 minute of the game and preserve a 52-45 victory.

Scoring: Tia 7, Thurber 7, Tailor Palmer 4, Reagan Richins 3, Sara Gibbons 3, Lola Gardner 3, Gracee Alder 3, Ludwig 2.
