RANGELY | On Friday Rangely’s lady Panthers traveled to Vail Christian for a league match. The Panthers definitely were not at the top of their game, falling behind the Saints at halftime with a score of 19-14.
“We came out and had a good third quarter and were down only two. However, down the stretch losing 34-40,” said head coach Jimmie Mergelman.
There were some highlights. “Mary Scoggins and Marlena Miller really stepped up, which will be good for us down the road,” Mergelman said.
The lady Panthers rebounded well and came out on fire against Plateau Valley.
“We had a great second quarter and at the end of two were leading 27-10. The third quarter was well played also holding them to only three points, ending with a score of 40-13. A lot of the younger girls saw quality minutes in the fourth and closed out the game with a score of 46-28,” Mergelman said.
The lady Panthers will play Caprock Academy at home on Thursday, and travel to West Grand (Kremmling) on Friday, then travel to Cedaredge Jan. 22.
