All the Carbon Lady Dinos had to do was win a home matchup against the last place Payson Lions to earn a certain playoff spot. Poor free throw shooting by Carbon doomed its chances Thursday night in a disappointing 56-50 loss to the Lions.
The Lady Dinos shot just 14-27 from the line for the game.
Shelby Cornforth, playing in her last regular season game of her high school career, led the Dinos with 19. Jordan Scoggins and Katie Basinger each scored 10. Annika Hansen, the other senior recognized prior to the game, was held scoreless.
With the loss Carbon slipped into a tie for third place with Richfield and Payson with 3-5 marks in the Region 12 standings. North Sanpete beat Richfield Thursday night to force the three-way tie.
Carbon will have to wait until the UHSAA looks into the matter, before making playoff plans.
