The win and loss puts the teams record at 2-3 in the Western Slope Conference and 4-6 overall. The Bulldogs have now faced every team in the conference with wins over Derby, Rifle and Battle Mountain (the Battle Mountain game did not count as a conference game) and lost to Palisade, Glenwood Springs and Steamboat Springs.
