— The Moffat County Girls varsity volleyball team easily handled Rangely High school in its season opener Thursday night.

The visiting Bulldogs dominated both side of the ball, cruising to a 25-17, 25-17, 25-23 victory.

“I’m really excited about the way the girls performed,” head coach Brianna Montgomery said.

Although this was a match-up of different sized schools, with the Bulldogs at 4A and the Panthers 2A, Montgomery handed out praise to the Panthers.

“Rangely was a great match-up for a first game of the year,” she said. “They played tough, but we will see a higher caliber of competition coming up.”

Montgomery stated the key to the victory was how well the team moved the ball around the court.

“We passed really well,” she said. “And that sped up our offense a bunch.”

Amy Dilldine led the Bulldog attack with six digs, five blocks and seven kills.

“Amy played outstanding tonight,” Montgomery said. “She stepped it up for us.”

Up two games to none and searching for the win, the Bulldogs found themselves battling through a tiebreaker in the third game.

“The last game was sloppy,” Montgomery said. “But the girls were aggressive and our bench made a lot of noise in support.”

Next up for the Bulldogs will be a visit to Grand Junction on Thursday.
