The North Sanpete Hawks outscored the Carbon Dinos 6-0 over the last 1:25 of the game Wednesday night to steal a victory and escape with a 57-55 win to open up Region 12 action.

The Dinos led 55-51 after after Cole Fossat split a pair of free throws. It looked like Carbon would earn their first region victory since it beat North Sanpete 55-53 on Feb. 6, 2013, but two costly turnovers and missed defensive rebounds doomed the Dinos over the last minute of the game.

Fossat led all scorers in the game with 17 points on 5-14 from the floor and 5-8 from the line. He also hit two three pointers. Peyton Fausett pitched in 12 points and six boards.

Carbon (7-8, 0-1 Region 12) will travel to Richfield (5-6, 0-0 Region 12) on Friday.
