Craig sports briefs for Nov. 24


The Craig Middle School boys basketball team lost, 39-32, on Saturday to host Rawlins, Wyo.

The loss put the Bulldogs' record at 0-2 against foes from across the state line.

CMS (7-2) fell behind, 14-6, at the end of the first quarter and couldn't catch up.

"We had a couple of bad breaks out there," Bulldogs coach David Grabowski said. "We had a couple of starters out, and we started slow. We had some new personnel in the line up, and it took us a little more time to adjust."

CMS visits Hayden at 4:30 p.m. today, and it gets a rematch against visiting Little Snake River Valley from Baggs, Wyo. - site of the Bulldogs' first loss of the season - Tuesday.

Puck Ewes lose in OT against visiting Aspen

The Craig Puck Ewes women's hockey team played its second consecutive overtime game Saturday against the visiting Aspen Motherpuckers 2.

But, unlike the team's season-opening tie to Vail, the Puck Ewes lost, 3-2, in the extra period to Aspen.

Trailing with 6:29 left in the second period, Ewes winger Shannon Young scored her second goal of the season, tying the game at one.

Aspen (1-0) took the lead in the third period while on a power play, batting down a puck that flipped above the head of Craig net minder Kandice Torno into the back of the net.

With less than two minutes remaining in regulation, an Aspen miscue led to the Puck Ewes re-tying the game.

Charlene Abdella picked up a loose puck in front of the Aspen net and fed Stephanie Beckett, who rammed the puck home tying the game at two, forcing overtime.

The Puck Ewes laced up for their second consecutive five-minute extra period in as many games.

But Aspen proved it was ready for sudden death.

With 1:27 remaining, the Motherpuckers found the back of the net, ending the match.

The Ewes' (0-1-1) next game is at 6:15 p.m. Dec. 6, against the visiting the Glenwood Ice Queens.
