Demons get by Bulldogs

Febuary 1, 2004 Glenwood Springs High School

After a season’s worth of near misses, the Glenwood Springs girls basketball team finally pulled out a close one.

As usual, it wasn’t easy.

The Demons survived a determined 8-0 run by Palisade in the fourth quarter to squeak out a 48-43 Class 4A Western Slope League win over the visiting Bulldogs for their second win of the weekend.

“I said that we had to hold our composure, take care of the ball and not make any stupid passes,” said Glenwood coach Deb Henderson, referring to her sideline speech that came after the Bulldogs (2-4 WSL, 3-10 overall) had pulled within two on their run.

Glenwood (4-2, 7-6) had three starters foul out of the contest in the fourth period, including forward Amber Sutherland, who led the Demon attack with 17 points.

“We’ve been in these situations before and we’ve blown it,” Henderson said. “Tonight we played with heart and were determined win. I could see it in their eyes that they weren’t going to let Palisade take it from us.

“Keegan Nadon and the others just took care of the ball, and that got the win for us,” Henderson added.

Along with a few well-timed points.

In the final two minutes, clinging to a narrow 41-39 lead, key free throws by Yuri Salvidrez and a field goal by backup forward Amanda Whiting gave Glenwood its five-point lead.

Palisade’s Krysten Hays led all scores with 18 points.
