Coming off back-to-back losses at the hands of Richfield and Union, the Emery Lady Spartans hopped on the bus and traveled to Draper to take on Corner Canyon. Down by five at the half, Emery fought their way back in this one and came away with a four point 47-43 win Tuesday night.

The Corner Canyon Chargers play in the 6A classification and hold a 6-7 overall record they also sit in the No. 15 spot of the 6A RPI. The Chargers play in the same region as teams like Lone Peak, American Fork and Pleasant Grove.

Emery struggled in the first quarter and only could find five points in quarter two. Corner Canyon went into halftime up 22 to 17.

In the second half,  the third quarter was a wash with both teams playing almost even. It was in the fourth that Emery found something, outscoring the Chargers 16-6 and taking the much needed win, breaking a two game losing streak.

Tambrie Tuttle found her stroke leading the way with 15 for the Spartans. Baylee Jacobson scored 13 off of 4-for-7 shooting from behind the three point line. She also pulled down four rebounds, dished out two assists and grabbed two steals and Brynn Gordon had 11 with four boards.

The Spartans sit at 11-4 on the season and still remain at No. 4 in the RPI.  Emery has just six games remaining on their schedule and with the exception of a contest with Real Salt Lake Academy the remaining games are all region match-ups.

On Friday night they welcome in Canyon View, who brings in a 6-7 record and the No.12 RPI.

Game time is set for 7 at the Spartan Center in Castle Dale.
