EDWARDS – Vail Christian’s Rachel Glandorf did not lead her team in scoring Tuesday night against Eagle Valley’s junior varsity.And, that’s a really good omen for the Saints. Megan Doughty led the way with 20, while Glandorf had 10 for a balanced attack in the team’s 41-34 win.”They played a box-and-one. They were on Rachel on every inch of the court,” Saints coach Paul Doughty said. “Being the experienced player that she is, she passed the ball off. Megan took the opportunity to shoot and that made a big difference. Both of them stepped up and played outstanding games.”

Glandorf responded to the box-and-one with nine assists and four steals, as well as 10 rebounds. In addition to her 20 points, Megan Doughty had seven steals and six boards.Vail Christian’s Danielle Cavanaugh had a strong defensive game, taking eight off the glass and picking up five steals.Vail Christian (3-5 overall and 0-1 in the 1A Mountain League) hosts Ouray Saturday at 1 p.m. at St. Clare.
