Glenwood boys notch first hoops win of season

The Glenwood Springs boys’ basketball team has its first “W” of the season.

Sophomore Sean Flohr notched 20 points, and five Demon players scored in double figures as Glenwood finished off the Demon Invitational round-robin tournament Saturday night with a 72-64 victory over Eagle Valley.

“It’s definitely nice to get that monkey off our back,” said Glenwood coach Roger Duroux of netting the season’s first win. “Teamwork is something we’ve been getting closer to and tonight it was definitely there. Everybody did their part.”



While Flohr had the high point total in the game, he was by no means working alone at Chavez-Spencer Gymnasium.

The Demons received a solid game from the backcourt. The frontcourt welcomed back Andrew Blake, who added size, rebounds and 11 points after being cleared to play this morning. He was out due to a concussion.



“(Blake) played well in both games (on Saturday),” Duroux said. “I think he’s back.

“The play of the three guards – Marco Salmen, Jesse Hansen and Jeff Screen – they did a good job of taking care of the ball,” he added. “Jeff did a great job. He may not have scored many points, but he still did a lot of things right.”

Hansen finished with 12 points, while Salmen and Blake each scored 10. Timon Fish tallied 10 points and Screen ended the night with six points.

After a tight first quarter that saw Glenwood emerge with an 11-10 advantage, Eagle Valley took the lead with 23 points in the second quarter and went into intermission with a 33-29 edge.

The second half was all Demons.

Glenwood outscored the Devils 17-9 in the third quarter and finished with a 26-point burst in the final stanza.

In Glenwood’s early game, the Demons couldn’t overcome a five-point fourth quarter and fell 58-52 to Ignacio in the second round of the Demon Invitational tournament Saturday morning.

The Demons held a four-point advantage at the half before Ignacio tied the contest at 45-all at the end of the third quarter. Ignacio, fueled by Olin Goodtracks’ six points, outscored Glenwood 13-5 in the final frame.

Laramy Miller and Andre Mattox paced Ignacio with 16 and 13 points, respectively.

Sean Flohr led all scorers with 18 points, including four 3-pointers, while Timon Fish chipped in 11 in a losing effort.

Ignacio won the boys’ tournament crown with a perfect 3-0 record, beating Faith Christian 75-65 in the afternoon game.

In the other morning game Faith Christian defeated Eagle Valley 71-46.
