<strong>LOGAN—</strong> Tara Goldman turned in a monster game with 15 points and 20 rebounds, while Lindsey Jensen scored a game-high 27 points and connected on five 3-pointers as Sky View defeated valley-rival Logan on the road Thursday, 68-57.
The Bobcats dominated the first three quarters of play and maintained a double-digit lead despite a fourth quarter rally by the Grizzlies. Lauren Mott, Megan Mills, and Catherine Mount all scored in double figures for the Grizzlies, but Logan (9-7, 2-3) shot only 32 percent to Sky View’s 47 percent for the game.
Sky View scored 16 points in each of the first two quarters to build a 32-21 halftime lead. As has often been the case for the Bobcats this season, they really poured in on in the third quarter, scoring 27 points and building a 59-38 lead heading into the final quarter of action.
The Grizzlies outscored SV by 10 in the final quarter, but it was too little, too late for the home team. The loss snaps Logan’s two-game winning streak and halts the Grizzlies’ momentum heading into a road game against region leader and undefeated Bonneville.
Sky View (14-2, 4-1), meanwhile, stretches its winning streak to three games and stays a game back of the Lakers in the Region 5 standings. The Bobcats will continue region action when they host valley-rival Mountain Crest on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m.
MUSTANGS 56, ROYALS 48
Mountain Crest halted a five-game losing streak and picked up its first region win of the season Thursday with a 56-48 victory over the Roy Royals in Hyrum. The Mustangs built a 12 point lead during the first three quarters and were able to hold on for the win despite being outscored in the fourth quarter.
Kelsey Kartchner led the Mustangs for the second straight game as she recorded a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Kenzie Rasmussen chipped in nine points, Baylee Wilden added nine, and Kelsee Nelson scored seven for Mountain Crest (6-9, 1-4).
Roy (7-9, 2-3) struggled shooting the ball, connecting on only 34 percent of its shots, while the Mustangs shot 40 percent from the floor.
Next up for Mountain Crest is Tuesday’s game at Sky View, before returning home to host Box Elder on Thursday, Jan. 31.
