Roaring Fork’s boys basketball team couldn’t recover from a third quarter in which it scored just two points in a 49-43 loss to Steamboat Springs in the Brenda Patch Tournament on Friday.

Jake Strack-Loertscher led the tourney-host Rams (1-1) with 18 points in a losing effort. Trae Moxley added 10 points and eight rebounds. Jose Vega grabbed six boards.

Roaring Fork had a 29-25 lead at halftime, but the Sailors held the Rams to just those two points in the third to take a 35-31 lead. They never relinquished the lead in the fourth quarter.

“It was a few little things,” Roaring Fork coach Larry Williams said. “Not blocking out here or there, missing too many bunnies in the lane, occasionally losing our man on defense. That was the difference.”

Roaring Fork is now done with the Brenda Patch Tournament. Steamboat Springs faces Basalt today at 1 p.m.

Steamboat Springs scored a 54-29 win over Roaring Fork in girls play on Friday.
