TR boys get big win
SHERIDAN — Tongue River beat Sundance 42-39 in what coach Robert Griffin called a “great team effort.”
The Eagles were 15 of 18 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter, and Griffin commended his assistant coach Pete Kilbride for getting their posts ready for a tough matchup.
“We played great defense in the fourth quarter,” Griffin added.
Austen Scammon had 12 points, Wyatt Main scored nine and Lane Dockery scored 12. Tongue River is at Rocky Mountain today.
Rams beat Moorcroft by 10
BIG HORN — The Big Horn Rams came out strong in their game against the Moorcroft Wolves, sagged a bit in the second quarter then kicked into high gear to pull a 72-62 win over one of the top teams in the state.
“Offensively coming out, we did well,” Head Coach Ryan Alley said. “We had good momentum going into the second quarter. In the second, we let down defensively. Our defense was not as quick as it could have been. Then in the third and fourth, we opened up to get a 10-point win.”
The Rams fell to Moorcroft in January, so it was a good win, Alley said.
While the Wolves’ best player had a nice game, the Rams were able to limit their other players from adding to the total score.
“It was a good team win. Everyone stepped up and played well,” Alley said.
Colter Carzoli led the team with 22 points, while Connor McCafferty kicked in 17 and Deven Ibach added 16 points to the mix.
Seth Kite shot for eight points, and Colten Bates had 3 points. Nolan McCafferty, Max Lube and Mathew Hanson each shot for 2 points.
The Rams will face Lovell today.
The Big Horn girls beat Moorcroft 63-18 Friday and are in Lovell as well.
