The Lady Miner's deep bench which has little drop-off from the first seat to the last, used a full court 1-3-1 zone press that wore out the Falcons on way to a 61-38 final on Thursday night at Ali Gymnastics.

In a post game interview I was told the three point shot which Colfax made at the buzzer was counted so The actual score should be 61-41.

The game started slow with both teams missing contested shots from the perimeter  The first was led by Emma Peterson of Nevada Union who had 9 of the Lady Miners 11 where Colfax's scored from the post and went 2 of 7 from the foul line. The first quarter score was 11-6.

In second quarter NU got out to a 10 point lead once again led by Peterson. But Colfax worked the ball inside and cut the lead to 6 with two minutes to play in the half. NU got a few quick steals and scored that worked the halftime score to 23~14. 

At the start of the third quarter NU and Colfax traded two 3-point shots each. Then Colfax tried to up tempo the game by tramping the ball in the half-court which resulted in easy looks under the basket for NU as they extended their lead to 44~23 at the close of the quarter.

Nevada Union's floor leader Peterson took a hard shot to the head in the third and did not return to the game. As previously stated they are a deep team and NU's coach kept the press on into the fourth which resulted in a 28 point lead midway through the final quarter. Colfax never gave up fighting the much deeper team to the final horn with the score 61-38.


Nevada Union was just to much for the visiting Lady Falcon who fell 46-28 to the Lady Miners.
