Three Forks nets huge 5B road win at Lone Peak

The Three Forks High School Girls' Basketball team was dominant from start to finish in a January 26 conference road victory over Lone Peak.

The Wolves (7-8, 3-6 5B) quickly jumped out to a 24-7 lead at the end of the first quarter and had a 35-15 lead at halftime.

"I think the girls really need that win. We needed that confidence builder," Head Coach Lacy Noble said.

It was a massive night for Maddie Tesoro, who had a game-high 27 points. AdaRae Thomas was also in double figures with 10, Zandra Potts had eight, and Devynn Judd finished with seven. Tanaya Hauser, Maya Noble, and Tycie Davis finished with five, and Bella Jones and Izzy Harris had three.

Three Forks lost a thrilling 53-48 home game the following night against visiting Townsend.

Trailing 18-5 at the end of the first quarter and 29-15 at the half, the Wolves would bounce back emphatically in the second half. After pulling to within 45-44 on a Tesoro three-pointer with 3:11 in regulation, Three Forks would tie the game at 45 after a Hauser free throw. The Bulldogs would answer back, outscoring the Wolves 8-3 in the final two minutes to secure the road victory.

Noble was pleased with how her team bounced back from the double-digit deficit.

"I think they were super composed for a young team that has made mistakes this season. They stayed composed, they stayed positive, and they were encouraging each other and helping each other. We haven't played together that well down the stretch in a long time. That was encouraging," Noble said.

Tesoro led the team in scoring with 18, Judd had a huge night with 12, Hauser also had double figures with 11, Thomas had five, and Jones finished with two points.

Three Forks opened the week on January 23 with a 53-43 road loss at Manhattan Christian.

Tesoro led the team with 19, Hauser had eight, and Judd had six. Thomas and Jones had three, and Tycie Davis and Noble added two.

The Wolves will only have one game next week, a February 1 conference road matchup with Whitehall.

Noble said her team will need to be ready to go from the tip-off and start talking from the start.
