LOCAL GLANCE (Jan. 15): Girls Basketball, Boys Soccer
San Pasqual's Ceara Ingraham scored 11 points and had 12 rebounds in the Warriors 35-30 win over Tonopah Tuesday, but it was her final two free throws that were the highlight of the night.
Ingraham was fouled, and in the process her glasses came off and were stepped on, but she still had two shots at the line. Ingraham blindly sunk both of the foul shots putting the game out of reach for Tonopah.
Marissa Miller also scored 11 points for the Warriors.

“We got into foul trouble real early, but I have to hand it to San Luis, they played a hell of a game,” Kofa coach Mary Kaye Garcia said.

Antelope routes Ajo
Antelope took care of business against Ajo Tuesday night and recorded a 57-15 victory.
Amelda Maynes led the Rams with 11 points and each of the other Rams had six or eight points.
“It was a good team effort,” said Rams coach James Jones. “We just played together as a team for the first time, looking for the extra pass and getting the ball there.”
Cibola survives Havasu
Noah Thompson got a key steal and layup to lead the Cibola boys basketball team to a road 42-40 victory at Lake Havasu on Tuesday.
With about 2:30 left, Brett Boyer hit a 3-pointer to tie the game. As the Knights were bringing the ball up court, Thompson got his steal and converted the layup. Cibola never trailed again.
Coach Tim Keller said the whole team, and Boyer specifically, played strong defense.
“We took a lot of good shots tonight, we just didn't make many of them,” Keller said. “But we played well defensively down the stretch. Our assistant coaches did a great job of breaking down (Havasu's) offense. We knew what they were going to do and had them pinned dead to rights. Whatever they ran we knew what was coming, and that was thanks to the assistant coaches.”
Jordan Mitchell had 15 points, five steals and three assists for the Raiders. Steven Loucks had 11 points, two steals and three blocks.
