Carr layup lifts Tigers to key win

Staff Reports

Hannah Carr

Hannah Carr's layup off a pass from Taylynn Kizer to beat the buzzer lifted Douglas to a come-from-behind 51-49 victory at Damonte Ranch on Tuesday night.

Down through more than three quarters, Douglas (7-6 league, 11-13 overall) rallied from a 19-6 first quarter deficit to maintain its share of second-place with Galena in the Sierra League standings.

Damonte Ranch (5-8, 8-11) led 30-20 at halftime and 44-39 at the end of three quarters.

Douglas celebrates homecoming Friday night with a 5:15 p.m. league game against Wooster. Looking ahead, the Tigers host Galena on Tuesday in a game that figures to decide second-place — which is worth homecourt advantage for the first round of the playoffs — and then they end the regular season on Feb. 9 at Carson. The Northern 4A Region Tournament for girls tips off on Feb. 13.

Note: The Douglas JV team won its game at Damonte Ranch, 53-20. The Tigers improved their season record to 20-3. The Tigers' frosh team also won its game, 55-21, and improved to 21-1 for the season.
