MEEKER | It was another successful weekend of basketball for the lady Cowboys. Winning both games once again, they remain undefeated in their league.
The Cowboys had prepared for a fast-paced game against De Beque and it paid off. The game was tight, within five points the entire game, Meeker pulled ahead in the fourth quarter to win 60-34.
“It was a battle the entire game,” commented head coach Jamie Rogers. “We never really felt like we were ahead.”
Sarah Kracht sunk 15 points and Julia Dinwiddie 11 to lead the team Friday. Defensively Tilly Brown and Dinwiddie were the top rebounders.
“Tilly had a great game,” said Rogers, “she held their top scorer to 10 points and played hard the entire time.”
“Going into our game Saturday against Paonia our feet were heavy,” commented Rogers, “the girls found another speed in the second half to seal the win.”
The Eagles were up by three at the end of the first half, but the Cowboys came out strong outscoring Paonia 13-4 in the third and 9-5 in the fourth.
“Kirsten had some big layups, she and Julia played tough games, they had to help guard when we had some foul trouble,” said Rogers.
Kirsten Brown and Dinwiddie were the top scorers, each with 12 points, and Dinwiddie combined that with 15 total rebounds.
The lady Cowboys played in Collbran against Plateau Valley Friday, coming away with another win 69-59. Full story next week.
