Huskies girls win at Steamboat
Special to the Daily
Midway through the second quarter the Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball team Battle Mountain seemed to be on track for a tough game.
The Huskies dominated everything after that, however, blowing what was a tie-game into a rout to win in Steamboat, 48-22.
The game was tied, 11-11, in the second quarter, but that competitive game evaporated quickly as Battle Mountain turned up the heat and Steamboat wilted.
The Huskies closed the first half on a 10-2 run, then outscored the Sailors 16-4 in the third quarter to put the game away.
Raya Duryea scored 12 points to lead Steamboat while Kady Look, back on the court after injuries threatened to keep her out of the sport all season, scored five. The Sailors only had four scorers in the game.
Battle Mountain got a big game from Dylan Barker, who poured in 18 to lead all scorers. Lily DeMuth and Monique Stevens each also had seven points.
Steamboat, unable to start its league season any differently than it did its regular season, fell to 0-10 with the loss. The Huskies improved to 7-1 and are now 2-1 in Western Slope League play. Both Battle Mountain teams are at Glenwood Springs on Friday.
The skier is from Bend, OR. and also races in the Super G.
