A small lead grew bigger for the El Dorado High girls basketball team against Galt Friday night in its Sierra Valley Conference matchup.

Leading 30-23 going into the final quarter, the Cougars rebounded their way to 45-30 victory over the Warriors on Senior Night at L.A. Brown Gym.

Maddie Zuber and Shelby Ganzert were honored for their four years playing in the program. Included was after-game desserts presented by their teammates and respective families.

El Dorado (2-7, 5-14) started the final quarter with a 5-0 run thanks to a free throw from Kathleen Cambridge and baskets by Sabrina Tate and Zuber. After Galt forward ReAnne Naea hit a bucket to cut El Dorado’s lead to 10, the Cougars grabbed nine rebounds that led to a 10-5 run and the win.

“I think the physical pressure we put on them took their legs out a little bit,” El Dorado head coach Pat Winter said.

The Cougars held a 19-16 advantage over the Warriors (1-9, 5-20) going into the second quarter. Four Warrior turnovers within three minutes helped El Dorado built its lead to 23-16 as the Cougars outscored Galt 11-5 in the quarter.

El Dorado started the first quarter with a 2-3 zone defense but Galt responded by shooting three-pointers. Overall, the Warriors attempted more than two-dozen treys during the game.

“We mixed it up a little bit last time,” said Winter, referring to the Cougars’ first meeting with the Warriors last month, an El Dorado 37-30 victory. “They (Galt) like to bomb a lot of threes. As long as we got the rebounds.”

Winter was proud of the performances of Zuber and Ganzert while Zuber has been a three-year varsity starter. Ganzert has started in almost every game this season.

“They’ve done a great job,” said Winter of the two seniors. “They play hard all the time.”

Two players scored in double figures for the Cougars: Sabrina Tate had 12 points and Hannah Dixon finished with 10. Kylie Haverson followed with nine points, Zuber, four, McCauaghey three, Ganzert, Jessica Jemmott and Mya Leaird scored two points each and Cambridge, one. Galt guard Candice Cam and center Danielle Hazlett scored nine points each.
