The Moffat County High School girls basketball team came back from a 7-point deficit to down the Evergreen Cougars 63-53 on Saturday afternoon in non-league action.

The Bulldogs (0-0 league, 5-0 overall) used a 25-point fourth quarter and a 19-point effort by junior Angie Charchalis to seal the win.

After the first quarter, the Bulldogs led by two, but an explosive second quarter by Evergreen put the Cougars ahead at halftime.

"We had 10 days off, so we were just rusty," junior Markie Workman said. "I was hoping we'd start playing like I know we can play."

Workman, a key player for Moffat County, found herself on the bench for much of the first half. With four fouls by halftime, Workman didn't see the floor until the fourth.

"I hit a three and had four baskets when I came in," Workman said.

Her 14-point tally put the Bulldogs ahead for good in the final minutes of the game.

"They (Evergreen) were a good team," Workman said. "We just started getting momentum in the second half."

Trisha Oakes, a 6-foot-1 center, led the Cougars with 17 points and teammate Kimmy Baroch added 12 points.

The Bulldogs begin the Nike Tournament of Champions today in Chandler, Ariz. by playing the Fairfax Lions of Los Angeles at 5:30 p.m. and will continue play through Thursday.
