The Wolverines never threw in the towel, however. They took over the lead with about a minute remaining and then held off the Dust Devils to pick up the well-deserved win.

"We played hard. We always play hard," said Truckee coach Sky Nelson. "Our defense has been pretty stellar."

The Wolverines improved to 3-11 in league play and 5-17 overall; Dayton dropped to 2-13 in league and 4-17 overall.

Both Truckee teams took on Spring Creek at a neutral site in Lovelock on Thursday night. The games, which ended too late for publication, were originally scheduled for last Friday in Truckee but were postponed due to a power outage.

"It's a big game for us," Nelson said, "because we could help South Tahoe get a better seed if we win."
