Caprina Pipion scored 11 points and Kendall Moore 10 Tuesday to carry visiting Vista del Lago past El Dorado 42-28 in Sierra Valley Conference girls basketball action.

The Lady Eagles employed a shifting 2-3 zone to stymie the Cougars’ offense and the best efforts of Sabrina Tate to run the host team. The centerpiece for Vista was 6-foot, 2-inch Rebbecca Stephens who blocked five first-quarter shots.

Despite trailing the whole way, El Dorado was never out of it and battled Vista, especially in the paint. Each pressured the other and turnovers mounted over the course of four quarters.

“We have been able to force teams to cough it up and turn it over but unfortunately we’re finding it difficult to score,” Cougar coach Pat Winter said. “We’ve been in every game and show flashes like we know what we’re doing but at other times we regress and struggle.”

El Dorado trailed 10-5 after the opening quarter and 19-10 at the break. In the third the Eagles took their first double-digit lead.

“It seemed as if we were a little off and weren’t as in tune as we normally are,” said Shelby Ganzert.

The Cougars had their best scoring quarter in the fourth. Carley Fowler’s baseline drive and wing three-pointer was a spark; Tate and Jessica Jemmott both hit free throws and Gina Somara delighted her two-friend, personal rooting section with a hustle basket underneath.

Kylie Haverson and Fowler scored six points apiece to lead El Dorado; Tate scored five; and Hannah Dixon had three points.
