Bulldogs beat Bulldogs in Palisade


All it took was some waiting for coach Blaine Corlett to see the Bulldogs he's use too.

After dropping a close game to the Delta Panthers Friday night the Bulldogs redeemed themselves Saturday when the traveled to Palisade.

Moffat County took a four point lead in the first quarter against the Palisade Bulldogs (1-10), and continued to run up the score for three more quarters.

The game ended in a 61-30 win for the Moffat County Bulldogs.

"We got better as the weekend went on," Corlett said. "We didn't play our game until the fourth against Delta, and from then on we just kept getting better."

By halftime the Bulldogs had a 29-13 point advantage on Palisade, with senior point guard Kyle Hazelwood leading the teams scoring. Hazelwood had 19 points on the night.

Hazelwood was joined by junior guard Pablo Loya, with 14 points, and senior forward Mike Charchalis with 12.

The Bulldogs, who have three conference loses on the season, are far from out of contention in the Western Slope - especially after this weekend. The top two teams of the WSC both were upset this weekend.

The Battle Mountain Huskies (9-2), who were undefeated in conference heading into Saturday, lost to the Rifle Bears 49-46.

The Steamboat Springs Sailors (8-4), who were also undefeated in conference, dropped both Friday and Saturday's games against Palisade and Delta. Palisade beat the Sailors 49-47, and Delta beat them 40-57.

"The loses by those teams really mixes up the conference," Corlett said. "It should work out to be a three-way tie for first, between Delta, Rifle and Battle Mountain."
