In their last regular-season basketball game, the Cedaredge Bruins came out too slow against the Roaring Fork Rams in Carbondale. The sluggish start cost the Bruins a 60-42 loss.
A 16-9 first-quarter run put the Rams in the driver's seat early. Add a 14-9 run in the second period and the Bruins found themselves down 30-18 at halftime.
After the break, each team scored the same number of points it had in the second quarter (14-9).
Cedaredge did manage to get its offense on the right track in fourth quarter play, even though Roaring Fork outscored them by one, 16-15, to make the final score 60-42. James LeDonne (five points) and Reid Gates (four points) kept the Bruins' offensive output nearly the same (16-15) in the fourth quarter.
Gates was Cedaredge's leading scorer with 13 points while Trae Moxley had 20 and Dakotah Grett 13 to lead the Rams' offense.
Cedaredge is in Aspen on Thursday to play in the opening round of district action. A win sends the Bruins to Palisade for the weekend while a loss means the season is over.
Cedaredge finished the regular season with a 5-11 3A WSL mark and 7-12 overall.blog comments powered by Disqus
