Netting some wins

CMS teams win five of six games Friday


The seventh grade players on coach Ken Olinger's team were excited to come away with wins at home Friday night against Steamboat Springs.

The B and C squads came away with victories against the Sailors, while the A squad fell just short.

"The B and C teams played well," Olinger said. "But the A team came out a little flat."

Craig Middle School held Steamboat to ten points in the C game, and were up 12-8 at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Steamboat would only score once more before regulation ran out to put the final at 21-10 in favor of CMS.

The B squad game was similar to the C squad, with CMS coming out ahead 8-4 at the half. During the second half, CMS pulled away, scoring 14 points to Steamboat's seven, to secure the 10-point victory, 22-11.

For Olinger things were looking good going into the third and final game of the night with his A team.

However, early foul trouble led to players on the bench more than the floor and a 43-19 loss for CMS.

Eighth grade

The eighth grade teams also played three games against Steamboat, and came out of all three unscathed.

The C squad down by a point at half time rallied in the second half for a 1-point victory, downing the Sailors 23-22.

The B game was just as close with CMS and Steamboat tied 14-14 at half time.

However, the B squad pulled away in the last two quarters and scored 23 points for a 37-22 victory.

The final game of the night for CMS was the A squad game. Coming out in the first quarter, CMS rolled to a 10-point lead and by half time CMS was up 19 points.

The third quarter started and CMS continued to build momentum, finishing out the game with a 55-19 victory.

The next home game for CMS teams is 4 p.m. Nov. 17.
