The Carbon High Lady Dinos dominated the Payson Lions Thursday in Price, scoring a 42-21 victory over their Region 12 opponents.
The game was Carbon’s second-lowest scoring output on the season, but Carbon’s defense stepped up and held Payson to single-digit points in each quarter.
“I think we play defense well all the time,” said Carbon head coach Ted Bianco. “Tonight, I think our defense was a big factor. Everybody in the gym saw could tell we didn’t shoot the ball well. We need to do a better job of that, but we did enough to win.”
Miranda Averett led all scorers with 12 points on the night. Kelcy Otani added eight points for the Dinos.
Carbon’s seventh straight win put the team at 13-3 on the season. The Lady Dinos next visit Spanish Fork on Tuesday.
The game was broadcast live on ETV Channel 10.
