LAYTON -- Defensively, the Lancers are clicking.
Offensively, Layton High is a work in progress.
Limiting the Braves to a season-low point total Tuesday, Layton extended its winning streak to six with a 51-34 non-league victory.
"I'm proud of the team. They're playing hard," said Lancers coach Van Price. "We have some chemistry issues on offense at times, but defensively we have held some teams down. We play better on defense than offense at this point.
"We don't have great court vision right now, and miss people who are open," he said.
Bountiful was coming off a 69-point road breakthrough Friday against Weber, but was held to single-digit scoring in three of four quarters on Tuesday.
"The idea was to keep Bountiful on the perimeter because they like to drive and dish," Price said. "Three-fourths of the game we played zone and a quarter of the game we played man-to-man. The girls have each other's back and cover the court well. They also cover the basket well."
The Braves (4-4 overall) committed 27 turnovers in having their two-game winning streak snapped and are just 2-3 in their last five.
Kennedy Merrick scored a team-high 14 points for Bountiful, but no other player reached double figures.
"This was one of our two best defensive efforts this year against an up-tempo Bountiful team," Price said.
Junior center Jaden Anderson scored a career-high 21 points on 10-of-13 shooting and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds for Layton, which shot 46.0 percent (23 of 50) but was just 16.7 percent (1 of 6) on 3-point attempts.
"We're playing as a team and I had opportunities in making my layups," said the 17-year-old Anderson. "I tried to work on my shot during the offseason.
"I didn't play a lot last season and it's a lot different starting," she said. "It's more intense and you have to be ready. I'm not the number one scorer and it changes from game to game. I was just taking what the defense was giving me to help us win."
The Lancers had 30 rebounds, 21 turnovers and 10 steals.
Livia Treseder tossed in nine points with three boards. Cassidy Anderson finished with eight points, four assists and three steals and senior point guard Ashley Price dished off four assists for Layton (7-1).
"We're just trying to keep playing as a team," Jaden Anderson said. "This was one of our better games of the year. We were pretty good on defense because we have a lot of talk and we stick together. Communication and staying together are the team's strengths."
