The 3A WSL was thrown into a spaghetti ball this past weekend. Cedaredge, the team which had occupied the top spot in 3A WSL standings for most of the season, lost, 43-32, to Moffat County helping send the top four teams into a tie for the league title with identical 7-2 league records.
The tie-breaker used resulted in Moffat County winning the title with its 7-2, 14-5 record, Grand Valley second (7-2, 13-6), Cedaredge third (7-2, 17-2) and Delta fourth (7-2, 14-5).
The Bruins started the weekend right with a 30-27 win over Roaring Fork on Friday.

There hasn't been a lot of offense in recent games for Ryan Hilbig's Bruins. Against Roaring Fork the defenses dominated play with minimum scoring throughout the game from both teams.
Cedaredge took a 16-11 lead at halftime and then had to scrap to hold on in the second half for a 30-27 victory.

The first and fourth quarters had decent scoring from both teams but the scoring in the middle two quarters was sketchy to say the least, especially for Cedaredge.
Cedaredge hit one of its coldest offensive nights of the season which was compounded with a four-point total for the second and third quarters combined (three in the second and one in the third).
Both teams played in Tuesday night's qualifying games. Three seed Cedaredge hosted 6th seed Roaring Fork and number one Moffat County hosted the winner of the 7 seed Coal Ridge and 10 seed Aspen. A win advances teams to Central High School on Feb. 23 and 24 for semifinal and final round action.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
