Defensive prowess: MCHS girls basketball buckles down on defense in 40-29 victory

The Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team usually wins games with a great offensive performance. On Friday, however, it was the Bulldogs defense that stepped up in the first round of the Black Canyon Classic against Montrose High School. MCHS held Montrose under 10 points in each of the first three quarters and used a well-rounded scoring attack en rout to a 40-29 victory. “It was a very good defensive battle,” head coach Matt Ray said. “It was in your face, you had to move your feet and it was hard to get a shot off on both sides. We had to cut hard and screen hard to get the shot we wanted.”
