Big Horn beats Lovell, TR tops Rocky Mtn. as teams prep for rivalry rematch

Rams move up 2A Northeast standings with win in Lovell

SHERIDAN — The Big Horn Rams (11-8) faced the Lovell Bulldogs (7-11) Saturday afternoon on the road.

Despite a slow start, losing the first quarter 15-10, and Lovell putting a few 3-point shots through the hoop late in the game, the Rams were able to come out with a 55-46 win.

Forty of the 55 points were scored by three key players: Connor McCafferty put 15 points on the board and Colter Carzoli contributed 13.

Deven Ibach scored 12 points and also held onto an impressive 15 rebounds.

The Big Horn Lady Rams (9-10) faced the No. 3-ranked Lovell Lady Bulldogs Saturday.

Double-digit scoring from a couple key starters was not enough to maintain and the Rams lost 64-45.
Leading scorers were Hanneah Puckett with 15 points and Bailey Bard with 10.

“We are going to have to get better defensively in order to slow down some of these better shooting teams,” head coach Mike Daley said.

“We are also going to need to blockout and rebound much better than we have. This will be our focus for playing Tongue River this week,” he added.

Big Horn will host a local rivalry match Friday against Tongue River before hitting the road to face Greybull on Saturday in the second to last weekend of games before the regional tournament in Cheyenne.

“Tongue River is really playing well and with a lot of confidence,” Daley said. “We will have to play very well to be in the game with them.”

Lady Eagles win again at Rocky Mountain; Eagles fall short

The Tongue River Lady Eagles (16-2) were victorious against the Rocky Mountain Lady Grizzlies (5-14) winning 57-48.

A strong start let the Lady Eagles head in to halftime with a 38-15 lead.

“We struggled a little in the second half and lost our focus,” head coach Dianne Moser said. “Rocky Mountain made a nice comeback and cut our lead.”

Tongue River made key free-throws late in the game to maintain their lead.

Leading scorers were Sarah Rawlings with 19 points, Kortni Sharp with 11, Tara Stimpson with nine and Eryn Aksamit with eight.

Rawlings also had five assists and nine steals.

The Eagles (5-13) saw defeat in their game against Rocky Mountain (13-6) Saturday.

The boys were outmatched each quarter but fought to the end and finished with a score of 57-39 Grizzlies.
Leading contributors were Austin Scammon and Lane Dockery with nine points each and Cody Buller with five rebounds.

The Tongue River teams will head across town Friday to face Big Horn before leaving town Saturday to play Wright.
