Craig Sports Briefs for Oct. 30, 2013: Moffat County volleyball season ends at districts

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

— The Moffat County volleyball team played its final games of the 2013 season last weekend, losing three times at the Class 3A Western Slope League districts.

The Bulldogs, after winning just two conference games during the season, were matched up with two strong opponents in pool play at the district. Playing at Grand Junction Central High School, they lost in the first match Friday to Coal Ridge in three sets, 10-25, 22-25, 15-25.

In the team’s second match Friday against Roaring Fork, the Bulldogs fared little better, falling once again in three sets, 20-25, 15-25, 20-25.

Those two losses took Moffat County out of the question for a district title and set it up with a Saturday match against Rifle.

The Bulldogs hosted Rifle in the final game of the regular season and lost in five sets after leading 2-1, but this time, the Bears were the better team throughout. Moffat County lost, 16-25, 16-25, 17-25.
