Moffat County tops Coal Ridge boys, girls
PEACH VALLEY — A very physical Moffat County High School boys basketball team gave the Coal Ridge Titans all they could handle on Tuesday night on their way to a 75-57 Class 3A Western Slope League victory at the Coal Ridge High gymnasium.
Greyson Keener finished with 14 points, Hunter Gerber added 11 and Jake Solinger and Michael Solis each chipped in eight points to pace the Titans (2-5 overall, 1-2 Class 3A Western Slope League play), who lost their second consecutive game.
“Their pressure and defense created a lot of problems for us,” Coal Ridge coach Paul Harvey said. “We were sloppy with the ball, which created easy shots for them.”
Moffat County improved to 5-3 overall, 3-0 in league play, with the victory.
Girls: Moffat County 47, Coal Ridge 30
