Glenwood girls sink Sailors

Luke GrahamSteamboat Springs Pilot & Today

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS Each game presents its own dilemmas.For Glenwood Springs, Saturdays game against Steamboat Springs was a classic trap game. Fresh off Fridays 65-49 win against fellow league contender Moffat County, Glenwood faced the other spectrum of the league in one-win Steamboat. But judging by Saturdays 64-28 win, it might not matter who Glenwood plays now. The Demons dominated every aspect of the game, leading by as many as 40 points en route to the rout. They can have a letdown, but every team is tough for us, Glenwood coach Bryan Derby said. We have to come out and focus every night. Were sitting pretty good, but every night is a different night, so we have to come out and play.For Steamboat it is more of the same. The Sailors showed glimpses of a solid team, before turnovers, mental lapses and prolonged scoring droughts did them in.Going back to the press, I mean that wasnt the best press weve ever seen and we broke it a couple times, Steamboat coach John Ameen said. But the transition to slowing it down and making smart decisions continues to be our problem. Steamboat also faced the problem of the Selsor sisters. Glenwoods Katrina and Sharaya Selsor scored 36 of the team’s 64 points, including scoring 17 first-quarter points to help Glenwood dart out to a 24-4 lead. Those Selsor sisters, theyre talented. Not just in a skill sense where they can catch and shoot and handle the ball, but theyre athletes, Ameen said. Theyre quick, so we were caught with that.Steamboat started to show signs of life in the third quarter. The Sailors were led by sophomore Gracie Stockdale, who scored all 12 of her points including two 3-pointers in the quarter. Unfortunately, the hole the Sailors put themselves in during the first half proved to be too much. Glenwood while not as sharp as Derby wanted shot 26-of-59 from the field and went 9-of-17 from the free throw line. Friday was huge for us and tonight I didnt know if the girls would come out focused and ready to play, he said. But they came out and played good. Everythings rolling for us. Now we just have to keep focused. Stockdale led the Sailors with 12 points. Colleen King added eight points, and Lizzie Stoll chipped in four. Katrina Selsor led the Demons with 19 points. Sharaya Selsor chipped in 17 points, and Kelsie Hert added 11 points. Glenwood, who moved to 9-2 overall and 2-0 in league, will resume WSL play on Friday when it hosts Battle Mountain at 5:30 p.m.
