KAYSVILLE — They went scoreless the first 7:11 of the fourth quarter and did not have a field goal in the quarter.
So how did the Lakers remain undefeated after Thursday’s 53-49 non-league victory over Davis High?
Dropping in 6 of 8 free throws in the game’s final 49.9 seconds enabled Bonneville to overcome 22 turnovers — 15 in the second half — and getting outrebounded by 20 to improve to 7-0 overall.
“We came out with no energy and were not doing the little things like we did in the first half,” said Lakers senior shooting guard/small forward Emilie Volk. “A win is still a win. It was a good win, just accept it and move on. We have to prepare for who is next on the list and fix what we did wrong.”
The 17-year-old Volk, who has signed with Fresno State, converted a one-and-one with 49.9 seconds remaining and then hit two double-bonus free throws with 6.2 seconds left for Bonneville.
“Shooting free throws is all mental,” she said. “It’s stepping up to the line and shooting them.”
Volk went only 7 of 16 at the free-throw line in Saturday’s 49-43 championship-game win over Fremont at the Harry Burchell Classic.
She was 5 of 6 from the foul line on Thursday.
“Five of six is better, but still not good enough,” Volk said. “It’s a free shot. I should make them.”
Volk scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, three assists and five steals for the Lakers, who shot 43.9 percent (18 of 41) — 54.5 percent (6 of 11) on 3-point attempts — and were outrebounded 36-16.
“We really had a good defense, which kept us in the game and gave us the (16-point) lead in the first half,” Volk said. “We played mostly a 1-3-1 zone and a little man-to-man. But we were not boxing out and doing the little things in the second half.”
Junior point guard Cortney Porter hit 6 of 11 shots — 5 of 6 from downtown — for a season-high 19 points with one board, six assists and three steals. Kayla Eilertson tossed in 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks for Bonneville, which got outscored 30-19 in the second half.
“I don’t know what was going on in the fourth quarter,” Volk said. “Normally, scoring is not a problem for us. We were in a funk. We just had some mental lapses and everybody was not doing their job.”
Jessica Richardson scored a team-high 13 points for the Darts, who shot 41.0 percent (16 of 39) and were 30.1 percent (4 of 13) from 3-point range with 26 turnovers.
