STHS girls avenge defeat to Warriors

ZEPHYR COVE – Four quarters have given the South Tahoe High girls’ basketball team trouble in previous games this season.

The final-period woes were solved on Friday night as STHS finished a 29-28 victory over their crosstown rivals.

Mel Sabac caught the final inbound pass near Whittell’s basket to run the final second off the clock, giving the Vikings their second Mount Rose League win.

“I was worried. I had the ball for a good three seconds, and then they started the clock,” said Sabac or her game-killing catch.

Sabac’s shooting and ballhandling were also instrumental in the outcome, which avenged a double-digit defeat to the Warriors earlier this month at South Tahoe. The senior point guard took it upon herself to score, finishing with a game-high 12 points.

“I was a little off at the beginning, but they were dropping in the second half,” Sabac said.

Megan Mize scored nine points for Whittell.
