Coleville girls in first place

The Coleville girls basketball team swept two games over the weekend to move into a first place Western 1A League tie with Virginia City.

The Lady Wolves defeated the visiting Gerlach Lions 44-24 in Friday's game.

Amara Rowley led Coleville with 15 points, 17 rebounds, and five assists.

Kimberly Torley had 11 points and nine rebounds and Molly Garcia had nine points and nine rebounds and also had a strong all-around game. Kymberlee Curti added six points and Skyler had 11 rebounds in the win.

In Saturday action the Coleville girls earned a hard fought road victory with a 42-38 win over Pyramid Lake. Kassie Pemberton, playing on a sore ankle, scored the last two baskets to seal the win.

Torley played her best game of the season leading the Lady Wolves with 17 points and 20 rebounds. Despite playing against a box and one defense for most of the game, Rowley still managed a strong performance with 15 points, nine rebounds, and five assists.

"I thought we did a very good job controlling the tempo of the game which is critical when you are playing a very talented Pyramid Lake team," said coach Will Sandy. "We did an outstanding job on the boards, especially on the offensive glass, winning the rebound battle by a margin of 25. Our team defensive effort was very solid. We were able to hold a team that averages in the high 50s to only 38 points on their home court."

Coleville ends the regular season with three tough league games. Coleville traveled to Virginia City on Tuesday night in a game that could decide the No. 1 seed.

Coleville will host Smith Valley on Friday night in their last home game off the season. The regular season will conclude on Saturday with a road game at Excel Christian.
