Bears drop first games to league foes

GRAND JUNCTION – The Rifle Bears dropped their first two games of the year against Western Slope team Friday and Saturday, falling 48-38 to Steamboat Springs in the semifinals and 62-42 in the third place game of the boys Class 4A District 7 tournament.

Rifle still qualifies for the state tournament, but it’s unlikely the Bears will receive a home-court advantage without the district title. Along with Rifle, Steamboat Springs and Montezuma-Cortez – which played for the district crown late Saturday night – Moffat and Montrose qualified for the state tourney.

Friday against Steamboat Springs, the Bears got off to a quick start, but a two-point third quarter doomed any hope of a district title as the Sailors rallied from a 23-21 halftime deficit.



John Daschle scored a team-high 15 points for Steamboat and Cameron Burney notched 14.

Ryan Shideler was the only Rifle player to score more than five points, putting up 16 in the losing effort.



No other information on Saturday’s game was available at press time.
