JV teams have perfect weekend


The Bulldogs junior varsity basketball teams made it a clean sweep over the Rifle Bears and the Glenwood Springs Demons.

On Friday in Craig the girls team started slow, but picked up a 54-37 win over Rifle.

"We were down by one point at halftime and the girls responded by outscoring Rifle 18-4 in the third quarter," said coach Mike LeWarne. "The girls just played a really good second half."

For Moffat County High School (MCHS), junior Jen Havrilla paced the team with 15 points and added seven rebounds. Sophomore Katie Telfer finished with 14 points.

"Rifle is a tough team," said LeWarne. "They have a solid program and they played a lot of girls in the junior varsity game that played in the varsity game."

Saturday on the road the girls dominated the Demons, 57-29, to improve to 14-2 on the season.

"In the Glenwood Springs game we were up 11-9 after one quarter," said LeWarne. "In the second quarter we outscored them 19-3 to put the game out of reach."

The Bulldogs had two players in double figures with Telfer leading the way at 18 points and junior Jessica Norman finishing with 13 points.

"The thing I like most about this group of girls is that they are a pleasure to coach, because they are improving each day at a time," said LeWarne.

The boys team ran past the Bears, 51-40, Friday on the road.

"The game with Rilfe was interesting," said boys coach Steve Maneotis. "Rifle had two big kids that were 6-7 and 6-3 and that was different for us. The kids responded to that and had a good game."

Junior Chris Bergmann had game-high scoring honors with 28 points, mostly from outside.

"Chris stepped up his play against Rifle," said Maneotis. "He was the difference in the game for us."

Saturday, the Bulldogs edged the Demons, 64-55.

Sophomore Mike Charchalis had team-high honors with 23 points. Chris Field finished with 12 points and Bergmann and Jared Burns both finished with eight points. Sophomore David Ridenour paced the team with 11 rebounds.

The Bulldogs are 10-5 on the year and 5-0 in conference.

"We got off to a good start against Glenwood Springs," said Maneotis. "In the second half I played three freshman."

The Bulldogs will be in action at 6 p.m today against the Meeker Cowboys.

"This is the type of game that we are expected to go out and win," said Maneotis.
