The Douglas High girls and boys basketball teams split playoff atmosphere games Friday against Bishop Manogue.

First, Manogue gained an inside track to the Sierra League girls basketball championship with a 45-35 victory against the Tigers at Randy Green Court. Then the Douglas boys rallied to take a 62-57 victory that assured them a berth in the playoffs.

Douglas (18-7 overall, 11-3 league) only led once in the girls contest — 6-4 late in the first quarter — as their seven-game win streak came to an end.

The Tigers only trailed 37-33 midway through the fourth quarter, however, the Miners (16-4, 12-2) closed with an 8-2 run to put the game away.

Maddy Lowe scored 12 points, Corryne Millett 9 and Leonna Mortimer 8 to lead the Tigers offensively. Breezi Holt scored 15 points and Maddy Lewis 12 for Manogue.

BOYS

Douglas (12-9 overall, 8-6 league) remained tied with Carson for third-place in the Sierra League — one game behind second-place Damponte Ranch — while Manogue (9-11, 6-8) fell two games behind with two games left in the regular season. The Tigers have clinched a playoff berth since they hold the tie-breaker advantage over Manogue (9-11, 6-8) with wins in both regular season meetings.

Manogue led by 9 points in the first quarter and by 7 early in the second period, only to see Douglas rally back to tie the score 30-30 at halftime. A.J. Pfaffenberger scored 7 straight points to spark a key run in the first quarter after the Miners took a 16-7 lead.

The Tigers outscored Manogue 19-11 in the third quarter.

James Herrick and Pfaffenberger scored 16 points each for Douglas. Austin Evans also scored 13 for the Tigers, who ended a two-game losing streak. Alex Tessmann contributed 5 assists and 4 steals.
