The Bayfield High School girls basketball team, despite a big second-half rally, lost to Piedra Vista in Farmington 46-41 in an interstate nonconference game Thursday night.
The Wolverines, who trailed by seven at halftime, fell behind by 13 points in the third quarter.
“We made a comeback and actually took the lead 38-37,” said Bayfield assistant coach Jacob Posey, son of head coach Ronnie Posey.
“They hit a 3 ... and they were up two or three the rest of the way,” he said.
The BHS assistant said defensive pressure helped bring the Wolverines back.
“It was also good patience on offense,” Posey said. “We never panicked ... the defensive effort also was very good.”
Haley Clarke scored 11 points to lead the Wolverines. Micaela Knickerbocker added 10 for BHS (1-1).
Piedra Vista is 2-3.
“You hate to lose, but we’re pleased with the girls effort,” Posey said.
BHS will play at Durango on Tuesday night in another nonconference game.
