The Daily Times staff

FARMINGTON – The Piedra Vista Lady Panthers withstood a late rally by Kirtland Central to win tonight’s girls basketball season opener 49-39 at Bronco Arena in Kirtland.

Both sides had some key defensive stops clogging the middle lanes during the first half, but PV had some key transition buckets and scored 13 unanswered points to open the third quarter.

PV led 30-17 at that point, until Kirtland stormed back.

Kirtland made it a 2-point game twice within the final few minutes of regulation, but PV held on to secure the win.

PV (1-0) will play in the John Lomasney tournament Thursday through Saturday at Gallup, while Kirtland (0-1) will play in the Page, Arizona tournament Thursday through Saturday.
