Steamboat girls cruise in the Brenda Patch tourney


For what Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball coach John Ameen called a roller coaster of a game, the result sure didn’t seem that way.

Steamboat opened its season Friday in the Brenda Patch Tournament in Roaring Fork, easily dispatching the host school, 50-29.

“We had good long stretches,” Ameen said, “and stretches of not being good.”

Steamboat led, 11-1, after one quarter and 27-15 at halftime before breaking the game open in the third quarter.

The Sailors were without starting point guard Sydney Bauk­­necht because of injury, but still were able to use their depth to get the win.

Hannah Moore led the way, scoring 25 points, and Tara Spit­ellie added eight.

Steamboat wraps up the tournament at 11:30 a.m. today against Basalt.
