Estancia High School’s Callie Larson scored a game-high 12 points as the Lady Bears rolled to a 62-45 victory last Saturday at East Mountain.
Right out of the gate Estancia (6-12, 3-1) jumped out in front of the Lady Timberwolves and manufactured a double-digit lead by the second quarter.
“This was a good non-district game,” Estancia head coach Travis Watts said. “There were some little things we didn’t do right, but for the most part we took care of business when we needed to.”
A strong second half helped the Lady Timberwolves trim the deficit by 10 points midway through the fourth quarter.
“This was one of the first games where I’ve felt we ran our offense, ran our defense, we made our shots, they produced what we needed to,” said East Mountain head coach Bobbi Otero said.
An 11-0 spurt in the back half of the fourth helped ice the game for Estancia.
“When we put our minds to it we can play a good game,” Watts said.
The Lady Bears hosted Bosque Feb. 6 while the Lady T’Wolves played Santa Fe Indian School.
