The Cedaredge boys' basketball team made a trip to Carbondale on Tuesday (Feb. 21) for a play-in game against Roaring Fork's Rams. The winner would advance to the 3A WSL district tournament held at Central High School in Grand Junction.
Unfortunately for the Bruins, the league's third place team was up to the challenge and, on its home court, used a blistering pace to score a 72-44 win. The loss eliminated Cedaredge (3-6, 9-11) from this year's district tournament and ended its season.
Not even 24 points from Christian Reynolds, and another 15 from Isaac Swoffer could slow down the Rams' express. Accurate perimeter shooting and an adequate inside game was too much for the Bruins' team.
Roaring Fork lost its first round game in tournament play to No. 2 Basalt (19-3). Against Delta in the tournament's third-place game, the Rams used a fourth quarter run to earn a 52-40 decision.
