The Morgan Trojans nailed a 3-pointer with under 20 seconds to play to upend the Carbon Lady Dinos 47-45 in the 3A Third Place game Saturday morning at Logan High School.

Having trailed for most of the game, Carbon stormed back in the latter stages of the fourth quarter to tie the game up and eventually take the lead, 45-43, on a Cyene Bigelow bucket with 20 seconds to go in the game. A Morgan player hit a three on the next possession to take the 46-45 lead. Lindsey Blanc’s field goal attempt on Carbon’s next possession was off, forcing the Lady Dinos to foul.

With .7 seconds on the clock, a Morgan player made one of two free throws for the two point lead, but Carbon failed to get a shot attempt off before the buzzer sounded, ending the game.

McKenna Sorenson led Carbon with eight points on 7-8 from the foul line. Jordan Bianco and Lindsey Blanc also chipped in eight points apiece. Kelsey Sorenson was next with seven.

The Lady Dinos finish the season with an overall record of 19-5, including a 7-1 mark in Region 12 action. Lindsey Blanc, Chandelle Nichols, Taylor Passarella, Paige Haeck, Jessica Jensen, Makayla Lupo, Cyene Bigelow and McKenna Sorenson all played in their final games of their high school careers.
