Mallory Packard and Jocelyn Martinez each recorded nine points on a trio of 3-pointers as the attack from downtown played a pivotal role in the game.

Highland wins on the road over Olympus
The Rams jumped out to a 26-17 lead at halftime, but had a rough third quarter and they found themselves trailing by one heading into the final period.
Highland’s defense would only allow five points in the fourth quarter, though, as the Rams escaped with a 45-39 win over the Titans.
Sosefina Langi, Sophie Legate and Cecilia Olevao all scored in double-figures in the victory, while Alyssa Blanck knocked down five 3-pointers on her way to 18 points and seven rebounds for Olympus.
When asked about the game, Highland coach Sala Asiata simply said, “Our girls had fun tonight.”

Sophomore Madi Orth went 13-for-16 and scored a total of 15 points.
“It was our senior leadership, especially on defense, that secured the win,” said Carbon coach Cami Carlson.
Enterprise earns hard-fought victory over San Juan
Noah Moyle led all scorers with 18 points as the Wolves defended home court and picked up a 44-38 win over the Broncos.
Enterprise was able to grab a double-digit lead in the first quarter and fight off a late rally from San Juan.
Halli Palmer and Serina Yanito each made three 3-pointers to help the Broncos climb back in the game but didn’t have enough offensive fire power in the final minutes.
Enterprise moves to 1-1 in Region 19 play and will continue its four-game homestand next Thursday when it hosts the Parowan Rams.
