The Beaver Lady Dusters had a happy homecoming thanks to a late third quarter rally that held up for a 41-36 win over the Boise City Lady Wildcats.

Beaver trailed 26-19 midway through the third quarter but finished the quarter with a furry, scoring 11 straight to go up 30-26 heading into the fourth. Beaver scored 8 of those points in just a 40 second stretch where their press turned turnovers into transition baskets.

Beaver did enough in the fourth for an 11-10 advantage to maintain for the win.

“We created some turnovers and hit some key buckets in the fourth to build enough of a lead to hang on,” Lady Dusters coach Casey Jones said.

Beaver looked like they might put away the Lady Wildcats early when they held Boise City to just two points in the first quarter.

Shalyn Farrington came off the bench and scored all seven of the Lady Dusters first quarter points.

Boise City settled down in the second, but Beaver still added one to their lead before halftime, 17-11.

Boise City took control early in the third outscoring Beaver 15-2, before the Lady Dusters rallied.

Kaitlin Kemp led the Lady Dusters with 12 points, and Shalyn Farrington and Jacinda Balderrama each added 9.
