‘Dogs take down Devils

The Moffat County Girls basketball team was looking to make it a 20-0 season Saturday against Eagle Valley, but to do that, coach Craig Mortensen knew his players would need to have more focus than they showed in Friday night’s game against Battle Mountain.

“We have a lot of smart girls on this team,” Mortensen said. “They love to play the game.”

That was apparent as Markie Workman dropped in a basket 40 seconds into the game, and Angie Charchalis hit a 3-pointer about 20 seconds later in the Bulldogs’ 71-38 victory against the Devils.

“After last night’s game, we wanted to come out intense,” said Charchalis, who led the scoring going into the half with 15 points.

Workman also stepped up when the team needed her.

“We all know what to do,” she said. “We really connected as a team tonight.” She finished with 12 points.

Referring to her 3-pointers, Charchalis said, “Coach says if we’re open to shoot, and sometimes they go in.”

They did for her four times Saturday night, and she ended the game with 24 points.

“The key to this game was good team play,” Mortensen said. “We started with a lot of energy. We had a good mix of inside and outside play. When you do that, the scoring will come.”
