TAHOE CITY — The North Tahoe girls basketball team dropped a league game against visiting Yerington, 40-28, on Friday.
The Lions jumped out to a quick 8-2 lead and built it to 17-8 by the end of the first quarter, leading by as many as 12 along the way.
North Tahoe senior guard Angela Wood scored five points in the final minutes of the frame to trim the lead back to single digits.
After a Yerington bucket to open the second quarter, North Tahoe senior forward Taylor Briggs made back-to-back shots to adjust the score to 19-12.
But the Lions scored the next 11 points to extend their lead to 30-12, aided by two 3-pointers, one apiece by Angela Sciarani and Celine Bethel. North Tahoe junior Bridget Schroepfer scored on a fast break and Wood followed with a pair of free throws to narrow the lead to 30-16 at the half.

Following a Yerington score, North Tahoe junior center Sage Chador converted a three-point play after grabbing an offensive rebound and scoring through a hard foul.
The lead was down to nine, at 32-23. The Lakers could get no closer, however, as the Lions ended the quarter with a 6-2 run.
The Lakers managed just three points in the fourth as the visitors steadily pulled away.
