Cowboys 1-3 on season

MEEKER | The Cowboys took to the road for the first time this season for basketball.

“We had expected Vail Christian to be a tough team, but they weren’t as tough as I thought, we just could not shoot the ball very well, the shots are just not going,” commented head coach Klark Kindler. “It is frustrating, the shot selection is excellent, but they are just not going in.”

Vail Christian pulled ahead early while shutting down the Cowboys in the first two quarters. At the half the score was 31-15, the Cowboys picked up steam in the second half but couldn’t close the gap. Final score 36-51

Leading scorers Zach Simonsen with 10, Liam Demming with nine, and Zagar Brown with six.

Simonsen also led the defense with seven rebounds and three steals, Brown had six rebounds.

“We have played a really good schedule so far, the competition, the three teams were all quality opponents,” Kindler said. “We are 1-3 but we have learned to get better from our losses because of our competition.”

“We have a chance to be right up there in the league,” said Kindler, “we will play thirteen league games and will have chances to be one of the top teams.”

The Cowboys are now on Christmas break and will play their next game, Friday January 7 in Hotchkiss, Colorado against North Fork, then the following Saturday they return home to host their next league game against Olathe.
