"They're the best team we've played so far and that still holds true," said Douglas coach Fred Schmidt about Carson. "We'll just play the game and see what happens."
Against South Tahoe, Christina Bradshaw scored twice on assists from Molly Hernandez, Hannah Sullivan scored on an assist from Britney Christen and Jessica Maul scored on an assist from Sullivan.
Schmidt said freshmen Bradshaw and Maul have stepped up to play well for Douglas.
