The A team had a hard time scoring as they were beat Thursday by a score of 9-28. The second half was a scoring drought as the ladies only hit one free throw. Kyrah Phelps led with four, Riley Allred had three and Ryann Mergelman and Yaya Terry one each.

The B game came away an exciting 24-22 winner in the second game of the night. The second half was all Rangely as the girls outscored the visitors 22-12. Kastyn Dembowski, Annika Cantrell and Adywen Meeks all had six each while Morgan Ellis, Mackenzie Manchester and Emma Smith had two.

Saturday both squads played well enough to win with the A team starting out the day with a 23-8 victory. Phelps led the way with 11, Dembowski and Mergelman with five each, Allred with two and Kadence with one. The B team notched its second win with a big 27-11 victory.
