Flohr catches fire again in victory over Battle Mtn.

MINTURN ” For the second time in less than a week Sean Flohr put the Glenwood Spring boys basketball team on his back and carried the Demons to a victory.

Flohr, who scored a career-high 40 points last Saturday in a victory over Palisade, netted 39 here Friday night to almost single-handedly lead Glenwood to a 53-44 victory over Class 4A Western Slope League foe Battle Mountain.

Add to the juniors’ total the eight points scored by his brother, Michael, and the Flohrs production was more than the entire Battle Mountain team. Three other Demon players put points on the board, but none had more than two points.

The Demons (4-4 WSL, 7-8 overall) trailed 15-14 after the first quarter, but gained a four-point advantage by halftime.

At the end of the third quarter, Glenwood was up by eight points and held the Huskies (0-7, 2-11) to just six fourth-quarter points.

Sean Flohr finished with six three-pointers and was 11-of-12 from the charity stripe.

Demon girls down Huskies, 40-32

MINTURN ” It may be time to go back to the basics for the Battle Mountain girls basketball team.

Missed opportunities seemed to be the theme of the gritty defensive struggle, as Glenwood Springs downed the Huskies 40-32 here Friday.

The game began slowly with the score only 2-2 until Battle Mountain’s Megan Reigel hit two free throws with 4:24 remaining in the first period. As if Reigel’s free throws were a cue, the Demons began pulling away and led 20-14 at the half.

Glenwood Springs senior Nikita Daniely kicked off the second half by knocking down both her foul shots, initiating a six-point run, and taking the air out of Battle Mountain’s game.

“Our bench came up big and did a good job of keeping us in the game,” Glenwood head coach Deb Henderson said.

Freshman Sam Ciani paced Glenwood with 14 points and Emily Hauptli netted seven.

Starting post Amber Sutherland missed the game due to injury, but her presence inside was filled by a 15-rebound effort from Amanda Whiting.

“I kind of challenged her a bit and she came up big for us,” Glenwood coach Deb Henderson said.
