El Dorado High girls basketball head coach Pat Winter picked up his 300th career win on the road toward the end of last week. Tuesday against Sierra Valley Conference foe Liberty Ranch at LA Brown Gym, Winter watched his Lady Cougars extend his victory count with a 55-39 win.

After Liberty Ranch jumped out to a 3-2 advantage, El Dorado took the lead for good when forward Kylie Haverson (game-high 14 points) scored off a Hawks’ turnover. A 13-2 run jumped the Cougars well in front. Leading the way was forward Jessica Jemmott, who scored four of her 12 points in the quarter, Haverson and Kayla Cotten.

“I think we’re figuring out who our shooters are,” Winter said. “In the second half, we wanted to take advantage of her (Haverson) height and rebounding (seven in the game), and get to the rim. Jessica is super athletic. I think we’re feeling good going to the rim.”

Rebounding played a major role in the Cougars’ grounding of the Hawks. El Dorado had 14 rebounds in the first quarter, and 59 in the game.

“We’ve been focusing on that,” Winter said. “The wins that we had have been on great defense and rebounding. Everything is coming around.”

Half of the Cougars’ rebounds led to second and third chance baskets. El Dorado took a 33-16 halftime lead into the locker room.

“The kids were doing a great job rebounding, and putting it back in,” said Winter, “and tonight, the ball was dropping.”

The Cougars held a 41-23 advantage entering the final quarter. Though Liberty Ranch outscored El Dorado 17-16 the Cougars were in control.

Faith Wilson and Cotten followed Haverson and Jemmott with six points. Hannah Dixon had five points, Rebecca McCaughey and Kylie Hammond two each and Gina Somara and Carley Fowler one each.

Cotten and Hammond had nine rebounds each while Jemmott and Katryna Holifield had six rebounds each.

El Dorado faced Union Mine last night and closes out the regular season at River City next Tuesday.
