Sean Flohr made sure Glenwood Springs opened its season with a victory.The Demon senior netted 14 points in the first quarter to give Glenwood a comfortable lead and finished the night with 35 points in a 64-59 nonleague victory over Montrose.”It’s tough to get the first one,” said Glenwood boys coach Kevin Flohr, Sean’s father. “That was Montrose’s second game and, for a lot of our kids, that was their first time ever playing varsity”Sean had to step up and lead everybody.”
And he did.After helping Glenwood to a 22-10 first-quarter lead, the Indians pared the margin down to 35-31 by halftime. With some key Glenwood players on the bench in foul trouble in the second half, Flohr scored seven of Glenwood’s 15 points in the third quarter to give the Demons a nine-point cushion.Montrose’s Tyler Rawlings hit a trey and a pair of free throws to bring the Indians within three with less than two minutes remaining, but Glenwood’s 6-for-10 showing from the charity stripe in the final two minutes was enough to keep the rally at bay.Flohr was the only Glenwood player in double figures. His brother, Michael, tallied eight and Adam Vincent had 7. Rawlings finished with a team high 18 points and Scott Frazer had 14 for Montrose.
