As the final horn sounded, the Moffat County boys basketball team dribbled out an impressive win to open its league season. The Bulldogs, after some offensive struggles in Meeker a week ago, delivered a full-game performance and put the rest of the Western Slope League 3A on notice with an 84-43 victory over Grand Valley High School Thursday night. Moffat County (now 4-0) built a lead in the first quarter by creating turnovers with full-court pressure on defense. 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.
