Warriors cry foul in loss to North Tahoe

The Whittell High girls basketball team fell to the North Tahoe Lakers 45-36 in a foul-plagued game that featured 84 free throws between the two teams Tuesday in Tahoe City.

Four Warriors fouled out and head coach Lindsay Wines was thrown out of the game that featured 67 fouls.

“The officials weren’t letting the girls play,” Wines said. “They were also missing a lot of easy calls as well.”

Caitlin Fagan, Stephanie Evans, Liz Rico and Jocelyn Mata all fouled out in the contest.

“It was really frustrating to watch a game like that,” Wines said.

With the Warriors making only 14 of their 50 foul attempts, the game was lost on the line for Whittell.

Despite the massive amounts of fouls and penalties, Ashley Wines scored 13 points and Fagan put in 15 before she was disqualified.

However, Lindsey Wines lasted until almost the end of the game before she received her second technical of the game when she criticized the referees during a time-out.

“I was very proud of my team for the way they played despite all the distractions,” said Wines, who will have to sit out the next Warrior game for getting thrown out. “I was really pleased with the play of Stephanie and Ashley.

“They played well with Alisha Roth out because of an illness.”

Next up for the Warriors is a trip to Truckee on Friday when they take on the Wolverines at 6 p.m.
