Lady Sailors win second straight


— Break up Steamboat. The Sailors girls basketball team is on a roll.

Steamboat snapped a nine-game losing streak Friday night against Eagle Valley and made it two in a row Saturday by knocking off Battle Mountain, 41-23, Saturday in Eagle-Vail.

"This feels good," Sailors coach John Ameen said. "When you win, you don't always necessarily play well, but tonight we played well for a full game. We did the things we needed to do to win."

Steamboat rolled out to a 22-12 halftime lead and kept rolling behind 16 points from Colleen King. The Sailors were able to break Battle Mountain's press and smother the Huskies on the other end of the court.

"It was that end first," Ameen said. "You can't control if your shots go, but you can always control (the defensive) end."

Meanwhile, Battle Mountain (3-12, 1-6) is looking for answers on the offensive end after a weekend when the Huskies scored only 44 points in two games.

"Obviously, we're pretty consistent in scoring 20 points per game," Huskies coach Andrew Schmid somewhat joked. "I think it's just because we get down, then we're looking for answers. We feel like we need to do something right away. You can't score 20 points on one possession."

Steamboat (3-12, 2-5) hosts Rifle on Friday.
