MCHS boys wear out Grand Valley in league opener

As the final horn sounded, the Moffat County boys basketball team dribbled out an impressive win to open its league season.

Head coach Eric Hamilton believes this group of players feeds off early-game energy, so he forced it into the game from the opening tip.
