The Bruins played three games last week, beginning with Roaring Fork on April 5. Cedaredge was too much for the Rams and outhit its hosts by a 13-4 margin for a 14-3 non-league victory.
On April 8 Cedaredge was in Rangely to take on the Panthers for a doubleheader. The Bruins, again, had too much firepower for their opponents and swept the twinbill 28-0 and 11-7.
Bruins 14, Rams 3
Cedaredge opened the game with a three-run first inning and never really looked back.
Two more runs in the third and a handful in the fourth had Cedaredge leading 10-2 with the Rams coming to bat.
The Bruins allowed a run in the bottom of the fourth and added two more runs in each of the fifth and sixth innings while the defense clamped Roaring Fork's offense down.
Bruins with three hits in the game included Tre' Labossiere and Chase Meyers. Labossiere scored once and knocked in a run on a home run. Meyers scored four runs, had two RBIs and hit a double for the winners.
Tristan Waddell was one of two Bruins who had two hits in the game. He was 2-5, scored twice, drove in four runs with a triple and a home run to his credit. Chris Lindley was also 2-5 with two runs scored.
Garrett Meyers was 1-4 with two RBIs.
Roaring Fork's defense was quite helpful in the lopsided win for the Bruins as they committed nine errors in the game.
Bruins 28, Panthers 0
The opener was short and sweet for the Bruins. An opening frame where Cedaredge scored five times set the tone for the rest of the game.
The Bruins took a breath in the second inning and scored just one run for a 6-0 lead. After that the floodgates began opening and the Bruins scored four times in the third.
Eleven runs in the fourth and another seven in the fifth ended the game after five innings.

A good sixth inning for Cedaredge produced six runs to give the Bruins a lead again, 11-5.
