Delta holds on to beat MCHS boys

Ben Bulkeley

With less than five seconds re­­maining in the fourth quarter, the Delta High School boys varsity basketball team was clinging to a slim, two-point advantage against Moffat County High School.

After getting the ball to mid-court near the sideline, Moffat County's Zach Raftopoulos was able to get a 3-point shot off as the buzzer sounded.

The ball ripped through the net.

Unfortunately for Raftop­oulos and the Bulldogs, his foot was out-of-bounds, and the basket was waved off.

Final score: Delta 54, Moffat County 52.

Still, MCHS (3-10 overall, 1-3 in the Western Slope League) was boosted by Raftopoulos' strong performance.
