After a tough start to their Las Vegas trip, the Flagstaff girls basketball team pulled off a couple of tight victories to sit at 2-1 after three days of competing in the eighth annual Gator Winter Classic.

The Eagles started their stay in the tournament located in Henderson, Nevada, with a 46-9 loss against Spring Valley, draining just one 3-pointer in the defeat Thursday. Breonna Curtis had six points for Flagstaff, which had a scoreless second quarter.

But the shots from long range fell on Friday as Flagstaff edged Lathrop, 51-48, on a Emma Doskicz 3 late in the game. Doskicz, a senior, finished Friday's outing with a game-high 20 points, hitting four of her six total 3s in the fourth quarter.

Miyah Verse added 10 points against Lathrop for the Eagles, who entered halftime Friday facing a 30-20 deficit. Kaitlyn Davis tallied nine points and Gracelyn Nez had six.

Although Flagstaff had 12 total 3s against Lathrop, it went just 1 of 10 at the foul stripe.

Verse led the team to a 43-40 victory Saturday against West Anchorage, scoring 21 points and finishing 4 of 6 at the free-throw line. Flagstaff led 20-18 at the half. Mariah Myerson notched six points on two 3s and Doskicz contributed five points.

Flagstaff plays Monday at noon for a spot in the Diamond Bracket finals, which will also take place Monday.
