Robby Bowles led the Saints with 18 and Fernando Hernandez had 13, as did Zach Linder. Gunnar Wilson reached double-digits with 11.

In the girls’ game, Rangely took down the Saints, 45-24.

“It was actually better than it sounds. We were only down nine at the beginning of the fourth quarter,” coach Doug Bruce said. “We were successful in slowing the game down and playing at our pace. we just couldn’t score enough. We played really soid defense for most of the game.

Ashlyn Gruber led the Saints with 16 points, while Tracy Salgado had six.
