Sean Flohr tallied 27 points, including five three-pointers, Michael Flohr added nine points and Foraker posted 12 of his 14 points in the second half in the Class 4A Western Slope League win.
“It was just playing hard, and boxing out is key,” said Foraker, who scored 10 points on offensive putbacks and matched his season high in points.
“Everything clicked and we played great defense,” added Glenwood’s Tyler Shadlow.
The Demons carried a 30-21 advantage into the halftime intermission, and put the game away early in the third quarter with a 13-2 run. Foraker scored two baskets during the spurt, while Sean Flohr hit four baskets, including a trey.
Cody Gerard was the only Eagle Valley player to score in double figures. Kevin Cruz and John Gabriel each posted eight for the Devils.

For a while in the third quarter of Friday night’s game it looked like whichever team scored the next basket would win the game. After all, the way Glenwood and Eagle Valley were playing defensively ” and, to an extent, offensively ” it could be the last basket of the game.
The two squads went more than 61⁄2 minutes of the third quarter without posting a point before Glenwood’s Yuri Salvidrez hit a jumper with 1:21 left.
The basket sparked a 6-0 Glenwood run, but Eagle Valley came back with a 9-0 run of its own in the fourth quarter to secure a 43-38 Class 4A Western Slope League victory.
“I think both teams were strong defensively and nothing was falling offensively,” Glenwood’s Emily Hauptli said. “Both teams did well defensively and we’ve just got to find a way to make that count” offensively.
Eagle Valley’s Kenzie Shreeve scored all 12 of her points in the first quarter, and Alex Amsden also hit for 12 points for the Devils.
Hauptli paced Glenwood with 13 and Salvidrez scored nine points.
