Cougars fall to Cosumnes Oaks

El Dorado High’s varsity boys basketball program hosted Cosumnes Oaks Tuesday evening, suffering a 75-53 loss in Sierra Valley Conference action.

While the Cougars enjoyed spurts of momentum, they struggled to compete with a Wolfpack squad that featured a bigger and faster roster.

“Those guys (Cosumnes Oaks) are a good team,” Cougar head coach Conrad Dizon said. “When you play a team like that, that’s big, fast and can shoot and play at the level that they do — you’re going to need to play a perfect game. We could hang with them at times, but we just didn’t maintain that level of play the entire game.”

El Dorado (4-4, 9-13) fell behind 20-12 after one quarter, and trailed 37-26 at halftime. The second half was a carbon-copy of the first, as the Cougars scored 13 and 14 in the final two quarters, while allowing Cosumnes Oaks put up another 38.

“We gave them a lot of easy buckets,” Dizon said. “You can’t make it easy for your opponent to score.”

Matt Smith had a team-high 15 points on the night, while Tommy Williams finished with 11. Michael Weston and Aaron Line each contributed 10. Ian Spencer added three with a shot from downtown while Soren Shepherd and Christian Robson had two points each to round out the scoring for El Dorado.
