RIVERTON – It was a tough weekend for the Pinedale High School varsity girls basketball team as the Lady Wranglers fell just short of advancing to the 3A State Tournament after dropping a nail-biter to Lyman at last weekend’s tournament during a consolation round matchup.

Pinedale entered the tournament as the No.-4 seed for the South and had a tough start to the tournament as it played No. 1-seed Powell from the North on Thursday.

Despite taking on the top seed for the North, Pinedale put together a strong performance against the Lady Panthers. The Lady Wranglers got off to a strong start as the game began, keeping the score close with Powell throughout the opening quarter. By the start of the second quarter, the Lady Panthers led 11-10.

Powell was able to pull ahead slightly in the second quarter, outscoring the Lady Wranglers 8-3 to lead 19-13 at the half.

Pinedale made a few adjustments at halftime to make a small push offensively in the third frame, pulling within six points by the start of the fourth quarter. Powell outscored Pinedale 11-7 in the final eight minutes of the game to pick up a 37-27 victory.

The loss moved the Lady Wranglers into the consolation bracket, where they took on No. 3-seed Lander on Friday.
