South Sevier, a class 2A school, took advantage with a 23-15 advantage in the third quarter on their way to a 67-55 win on Friday night at the CHS Gymnasium.
Carbon used a pressing defense in the fourth quarter helping to cut the lead down to nine late in the quarter. Carbon began to foul South Sevier to help stop the clock but the Rams knocked down their free throws to help secure the road win.
Brad Williams led Carbon High with 14 points, including two 3-pointers. Caden Sherman added 10 points and Preston Anderson had nine points.
