Bulldogs run past Panthers
The Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team entered the extended winter break on a high note Friday, cruising past Montezuma-Cortez, 62-34, in Palisade.
“We played really well,” MCHS coach Craig Mortensen said. “We shot the ball well and were able to rotate all the kids in to the game. It was a great way to go into the break.”
Moffat County (3-4 overall, 0-0 Western Slope League – 4A) used a balanced attack to push aside the Panthers (3-3 overall, 0-0 Southwestern League – 5A), as 11 Bulldogs scored in the victory.
Senior shooting guard Courtney Edington led the Moffat County charge, tallying a game-high 13 points.
Junior Amanda Snyder added 12 and senior Ariel Sanchez pitched in with eight.
“It was a good game for us,” Mortensen said. “We looked really good at the finish. The girls learned a lot” from playing in two tough tournaments last week.
