FARMINGTON — Led by Meeya Yazzie's 19 points, the Farmington Lady Scorpions rolled past the Bloomfield Lady Bobcats.
Brighton Clah scored 12 more points for the Lady Scorps (9-8), and Shayna Carlowe added 11 more as Farmington defeated Bloomfield 61-42.
"It was a great effort by the girls and great energy," said FHS head coach Danny Secrest.
Bloomfield head coach Tom Adair said he was once again pleased with the efforts of his Lady Bobcats (3-10).
"You don't like losing, but our effort and hustle were awesome," Adair said.
Shaelyn White led the Lady Bobcats with 14 points. Jasmine Sappington scored 13 more points in the loss. Adair was pleased with Shania Gallegos' seven rebounds off the bench. Louisa Maestas also had six steals, and Gabby Munoz had four assists.
"We had a lot of girls come off the bench and play well. We got in foul trouble, and we have been doing that too much lately," Adair said.
Bloomfield will begin play in the Hope Christian tournament on Thursday. Farmington is back in action at Del Norte on Friday night.
Piedra Vista 50, Grants 37
A strong second half propelled the Piedra Vista Lady Panthers to a road victory on Tuesday night.
PV (9-6) trailed Grants (7-6) by four points at halftime after leading by five following the first quarter. But the Lady Panthers came out strong in the third quarter, scoring 20 points to establish a 37-26 lead. That was all PV needed to cruise to a 50-37 victory.
"The offense was nice, and our defense was nice. It all came together the whole second half," said PV head coach Joe Reed. "Grants is a tough place to play and get a win. When we got down at halftime, the girls could have easily quit and rolled over, but they continued to fight hard."
Kaleigh Graham led the Lady Panthers with 15 points. She also finished with double-figure rebounds. Jacklyn Smith finished with another eight points in the PV win.
The Lady Panthers cut down on their turnovers, committing only 13 on Tuesday night.
Reed was happy to see his team break Grants' press defense, which will be key in the team's next game at Gallup on Thursday night.
"We need to stay healthy because we have got colds going around. We are working to get the girls' spirits up right now," Reed said. "We have built some confidence, and we will find out against Gallup how much better we have gotten against the press."
Navajo Prep 58, Rehoboth 56, OT
The Navajo Prep Lady Eagles earned another big District 1-2A victory on Tuesday night.
Navajo Prep (9-5, 2-0 District 1-2A) defeated Rehoboth Christian 58-56 in overtime at home in the Eagle's Nest Gymnasium.
"It's big, especially with eight teams in our district. Everybody is competitive," said Navajo Prep head coach Rainy Crisp. "We want a good seed and to hopefully make the state tournament."
Jasmine Coleman led the Lady Eagles with 20 points, 10 rebounds and five steals. Coleman hit two free throws with eight seconds left in overtime to give Prep a lead. She then got a steal at half-court to end the game.
"Our key players are doing great, but I do have a strong bench that chips in when we're ready," Crisp said.
Muriel Waukazoo scored 11 more points in the win, and Mathaney Wilson and Ashley Joe each scored nine points.
