MEEKER | Two close games and another win on the books for Cowboy basketball.
Meeker took on the De Beque Dragons last Friday, it was a heartbreaking seven-point loss after the Cowboys were on top through much of the third quarter. Cole Rogers had an amazing 24 points, half of which came from behind the three-point line. Spud White, another team state leader, had 13 points. The final score was 52-59.
Saturday found the Cowboys back in front of a home crowd to face regional rivals the Paonia Eagles. Once again Rogers bested 20 points with a combination of four three-pointers, three free throws and four regular goals for 23 total points. White, just behind once again, with 20 points also had 12 total rebounds.
Meeker is now even in the league for this season 3-3, and 4-8 overall.
It is another split weekend between home and away games. Friday they will play in Collbran (story next week) and Saturday boys’ varsity is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. at home against Vail Mountain.
