Cedar 38, Hurricane 35 2/13/2018

The Lady Reds won at Hurricane in a low-scoring contest, 38-35. Cedar’s victory snapped the Lady Tigers’ seven-game winning streak and assured the Lady Reds of the Region 9 title.

Hurricane had a shot to win the game in the closing seconds, but missed the attempt. Cedar’s Dream Weaver rebounded the miss and was fouled. She sank both free throws to account for the final three-point margin.

“We had a really good look, but just missed it,” Hurricane coach Franci Homer said.

Weaver finished with 24 points, including three 3-pointers. She also pulled down six rebounds and had four assists.

“We had 10 assists on our 13 baskets,” said Cedar head coach Corry Nielsen. “Both teams played great defense. We blocked 11 of their shots.”

The game also marked Cedar senior Carley Davis’ return to action after missing more than a week due to a concussion. Davis finished with four points, three rebounds, two assists, and four steals. Sophomore guard Japrix Weaver added five points for the Lady Reds.

Hurricane was led by senior Jayden Langford’s eight points, while Hailey Homer added seven. Madi Hirschi added four points, five rebounds and five steals for the Lady Tigers.

Hurricane (now 7-4 in region play) will finish out its regular season at Snow Canyon Thursday. The Tigers can secure the No. 2 playoff spot with a win on Thursday. Meanwhile, region champion Cedar (9-2) will face Dixie (3-8) at Cedar that same evening.
