Hattie Gianinetti scored a late layup to lift the Rams to victory against the Devils. Her twin sister, Megan, finished with a team-high 14 points as Roaring Fork had to weather a late rally by Eagle Valley.

Autumn Grandberry poured in 10 points and Maddie Nieslanik finished with eight for the Rams.

Madeline Lounsberry led Eagle Valley, which trailed 26-15 at halftime and 34-26 after three quarters, with 16 points.

On Friday, Hattie Gianinetti and Lough had eight points apiece to pace Roaring Fork. Nieslanik chipped in with seven and Megan Gianinetti ended up with six.

Glenwood Springs rebounded from a four-point first quarter to down host Coal Ridge in Friday night’s boys basketball season opener, 56-34.

Chris Thomas paced the Demons with 14 points in the win. Collin Porterfield added 12, Alberto Ramirez eight, Pete Ray seven and Logan Holmberg six.

“I thought the boys played really hard tonight,” Glenwood coach Cory Hitchcock said. “They did a good job playing team basketball and picking up our defense.”
