Lady Spartans Win Home Opener Against Manti


Leading by as many as 17 points in the second half, the Emery Lady Spartans easily won their home opener versus Manti Tuesday night, 52-41.

The Templars, though, cut Emery’s lead to just six with 38 seconds remaining after multiple Spartan turnovers. The score at halftime was 28-20.

Emery started sluggish to begin the game, but after falling behind 9-6 late in the first quarter, coach Dean Stilson initiated a full-court pressure defense that quickly turned the lead in Emery’s favor. The team went on a 16-0 run and never looked back.

Emery (2-1, 0-0 Region 15) will host Beaver (4-1, 0-0 Region 13) and Delta (2-2, 0-0 Region 13) Thursday and Friday, respectively.
