After a pair of disappointing home losses Friday, Moffat County High School hoops came roaring back on the road the next day.

Bulldogs zipped past the Aspen Skiers Saturday, as girls earned a 47-13 win and boys gained the W at 58-44.

With the scoreboard shining 27-5 at halftime in favor of the visitors, MoCo girls had little difficulty taking care of business after Friday’s 49-43 defeat to Delta, as coach Jim Loughran worked in his full bench against the Skiers, who despite struggling against the Lady Bulldogs, are in the midst of one of their best recent seasons with as many wins this schedule as they have in four straight 1-19 years.

The boys’ 67-29 loss to the Panthers was likewise hanging over their heads, and a sniper show to start the afternoon gave them several early three-pointers and a healthy lead at 20-12. Skiers put up a fight in the second quarter, yet Bulldogs maintained the momentum at 34-22 at halftime.

MCHS girls move to 12-4 overall and 6-1 in the 3A Western Slope League, with boys now 5-11 total, 3-4 in conference play.

The Bulldogs will travel to Granby Feb. 7 for their final non-league game, followed the next day back in the Dog House with Senior Night against Roaring Fork.
