El Dorado High’s varsity girls basketball program came up short Friday at home, falling to Cosumnes Oaks 61-46 in Sierra Valley Conference action.
The Cougars pushed for an early lead, forcing Cosumnes Oaks to take note but trouble finishing at the rim and second-chance baskets for the Wolfpack had El Dorado trailing at the end of each quarter.
“We couldn’t get over the hump,” head coach Pat Winter said. “We jumped out to an early lead, but didn’t maintain our intensity and let them (Cosumnes Oaks) right back into it.”
Cougar Kylie Haverson led the team with 15 points and eight rebounds; Hannah Dixon supplied eight points while Faith Wilson had seven against a Wolfpack press that generated loads of trouble.
“Unfortunately we continue to turn the ball over and we’re having trouble getting back on defense, giving up easy baskets,” Winter said.
Trailing 31-21 at the half, El Dorado had small scoring streaks in the third and fourth quarters, shaving 16-point leads down to 10, but Wolfpack free throws preserved their lead.
“We cut the game down in the third and fourth quarters, but then we’d give up a three-pointer or foul and send them to the line,” Winter said. “Hopefully we’ll get to work on Monday at practice and next week be better.”
The loss Friday night puts El Dorado 0-2 in league, 5-10 overall.
