Vista del Lago’s captain trio Caprina Pipion, Emily Anderson and Sydney Larocca combined for 43 points and most of the damage as the visiting Eagles turned back El Dorado 58-42 last Thursday in Sierra Valley Conference girls basketball action.

The Cougars competed with Vista but just couldn’t match its firepower despite a team-high 15 points from Kylie Haverson. El Dorado trailed by just four at halftime but was outscored 30-18 over the final two quarters.

Led by Haverson’s new-found perimeter game, the Cougars overtook Vista in the second quarter. Trailing 19-9, Samantha Klinkenborg’s 3-point play and Hannah Dixon’s runner started the comeback.

Haverson, in the corner after receiving a long rebound, knocked down the three-pointer to get El Dorado within four and after Klinkenborg converted inside, hit another three from the wing for the lead.

After the Eagles tied the score, Haverson made two free throws for a 24-22 advantage before Vista ended the half with six straight to lead 28-24.

“We got in an early hole and came back hard but its the same broken record: too many unforced turnovers,” El Dorado coach Pat Winter said. “Right now we’re going to have to figure a way to beat some teams (second half of league) that beat us. Clean things up, stop turning the ball over and find our sense of urgency.”

Pipion’s six points and five from Larocca allowed the visitors to extend in the third. The three scored all but two of their team’s 15, fourth-quarter points as the Cougars could not keep pace.

Five points and solid play by Jessica Jemmott off the bench sparked El Dorado in the first quarter.

After Haverson, Dixon had eight points, Jemmott finished with six and Klinkenborg added five points. Faith Wilson, Gina Somara, Kayla Patten and Carley Fowler each had two points.

The Cougar JV won 67-57.
