Demons end seasonlooking toward future

The stay was short this time around, but with the bulk of the roster consisting of underclassmen, Glenwood Springs should be primed for a deeper run in next season’s state boys basketball playoffs.The Demons, who concluded the 2004-05 slate at 12-11 after Friday’s 68-49 first-round playoff loss to Montrose, lose only two seniors and one starter from the current squad.That bodes well for Glenwood’s future.”They’re good kids,” said second-year coach Kevin Flohr. “I hope they stay together and see the opportunity and talent they have.”Junior Michael Flohr, who led the Demons with 13 points in the loss to the Indians, will be one of four scheduled returning starters. The others are Chris Benson, Nathan Moore and Ryan Foraker.Benson and Moore are both juniors. Foraker, who gave the Demons an inside presence at center, is a sophomore.All four should be ready to pickup the offensive punch the team loses from Sean Flohr, Glenwood’s lone senior starter. Dustin Braeger, a key sub, is the team’s other senior.Montrose centered its defense on Sean Flohr in his final high school game, holding him to nine points. But the Demons didn’t go down without a fight.After falling behind 15-20, Glenwood knotted the game at 24-all in the first two minutes of the second quarter, then pulled within one at halftime on five straight points from Benson when Montrose took a 28-24 lead.After intermission, the Indians took control and posted a 10-point lead at the end of the third quarter by outscoring the Demons 15-6. Flohr said the key to increased success in the future is for the returnees to “develop a winning mentality,” along with the desire to work in the off-season to develop their basketball skills.
