Round two of the Sierra League season gets under way Friday night when the Douglas High girls basketball team travels to Reno to face Wooster.

Douglas, which took a 4-6 league record (7-11 overall) into its game against Carson on Tuesday night, will look to get past Wooster and gain momentum moving toward the Northern Division I Region Tournament, which starts on Feb. 16. The top four teams in both the Sierra and High Desert leagues will advance to the tournament.

The Tigers defeated Wooster 52-29 when the two teams met in Minden on Jan. 12.

Last Friday, the Tigers started out well enough in their Winter Homecoming game before Damonte Ranch stormed back to a 61-42 victory at Randy Green Court. Damonte Ranch outscored the Tigers 14-2 in the second quarter and 24-6 in the third. T

One key was turnovers. Damonte Ranch had 15 in the first half and four in the second. Douglas had 21 turnovers, 11 in the second in the second half, 10 of which came off the Mustangs’ zone press during the final five minutes of the third quarter.

Maddy Lowe led all scorers for Douglas with 17 points. Freshman Hannah Carr added 11 points, nine of which came in the fourth quarter.

Sophomore guard Alexus Hunter had 16 points and nine assists for Damonte Ranch. Senior Kira Bruesewitz had 15 points with four 3-pointers, including a four-point play that gave the Mustangs a 36-23 lead with 3:34 left in the third quarter.
