EL DORADO — El Dorado’s smothering full-court press was the difference Tuesday as the Lady Cougars upended host Union Mine 40-25 in Sierra Valley Conference action. El Dorado forced 22 Union Mine turnovers, 12 in the second half when it pulled away. “We like to press,” El Dorado head coach Pat Winter said. “Our philosophy is to wear people down. We’re looking to wear down teams toward the end of games.” The Cougars couldn’t connect from the field. Their combination of turnovers and missed shots allowed Union Mine to cling to a 15-14 halftime lead, thanks to Yvonne Taylor’s three-pointer with 21 seconds left and Kinsey Del Rio’s coast-to-coast basket at the buzzer.
