Down by as many as 17 points in the second half, the Carbon Dinos couldn’t quite complete the comeback as they were defeated by the Richfield Wildcats Tuesday night, 63-55.
Carbon cut the lead to four, 59-55, with under a minute to go in the game after three three-pointers by Jordan Vasquez within that span. Clutch free throw shooting by the Wildcats sealed the win for the visiting team.
Colin Lewis and Vasquez poured in 12 points apiece in the game to lead the Dinos. Derek Hillam added eight points and Kaleb Nelson chipped in seven.
Carbon (1-4, 0-0 Region 14) will make the short trip to Castle Dale to take on the Emery Spartans Wednesday at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on ETV Channel 10.
