Demons finish regular season with victories

Last year, Palisade upset the Demons in their regular-season finale.

Not this year.

The Glenwood girls left no doubt in this one as they beat the Bulldogs 74-29 in their last regular season game Friday night.

“They beat us last year, so we had some payback to get,” said Glenwood head coach Bryan Derby.

Glenwood was aided by a strong rebounding performance ” one that netted 52 boards. The Demons now enter the postseason with an 18-3 overall and 12-1 Class 4A Western Slope League record.

The Glenwood boys team also beat Palisade on Friday night, although the score was unavailable at press time. The Demons wrapped up their regular season with a 14-6 overall record and 9-5 WSL mark.

Both squads now await Sunday’s 32-team playoff bracket announcement, which will be released by the Colorado High School Activities Association on Sunday.
