Rams hold on, win Patch opener

Post Independent staff report
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Dalton Handy and Dakotah Grett scored 12 points apiece as host Roaring Fork held on for a 57-54 boys basketball win over Glenwood Springs in Thursday’s Brenda Patch Tournament opener.

Trae Moxley added 10 points and Jake Strack-Loertscher grabbed eight rebounds for the Rams, who led much of the night in their home gym.

“We got the lead pretty early and just maintained it,” Roaring Fork coach Larry Williams said. “It was just nip and tuck. We’d push it up to 12 and then Kevin [Flohr] would bury a couple 3s and it’d be a two-point ball game.”

Flohr led all scorers with 26 points. Mike McGraw chipped in with 15 for the Demons.

Thursday’s game was the season opener for both teams.

Roaring Fork resumes play in the round-robin tournament when it faces Steamboat Springs tonight at 8 p.m. Glenwood battles Basalt at 5 p.m.

Glenwood Springs girls basketball coach Bryan Derby couldn’t ask for much more than what his Demons gave him in Thursday’s Brenda Patch Tournament opener.

Kenzie Kuhn led a balanced attack with 16 points as Derby’s squad scored a 65-21 win over host Roaring Fork.

Connor Adams and Delaney Gaddis chipped in with 13 points apiece and Lexie Warkentin had 12 as Glenwood cruised to a 36-8 halftime lead and never relented. Cassidy Gaddis finished with nine points.

Megan Gianinetti led the Rams with six points. Her twin sister, Hattie, added five.

The Rams face Steamboat today at 6:30 p.m., while the Demons square off with Basalt at 3:30 p.m.
