Steamboat Springs Wins against the North Park High School boys basketball team haven’t exactly proven to be a bellwether when it comes to Soroco’s season.
Consider: The Rams (1-0) have had little trouble with their cross-range foes in recent years and beat them by nearly the same margin in one of the program’s best seasons, 28 points in 2009, and one of the worst, 29 points in 2010.
So, it may not be until Saturday when the Rams take on only the season’s second varsity opponent that fans find out whether the season-opening 70-45 win against North Park meant anything.
If Soroco really has been able to take some of the steps it hoped to after that first big night against the Wildcats, it definitely will have the opportunity to prove it in a 2:30 p.m. Saturday game against Gilpin County, which is off to a hot start of its own with a 5-1 record.
The Rams got hot from 3-point range to beat North Park and ran a transition offense well Monday in a win against Moffat County’s junior varsity. On Saturday, they may need to be hitting in both elements of their game against Gilpin County, which is coming off three consecutive double-digit wins.
“It should be a great game,” Rams’ coach Sam McLeod said. “They can really get the ball down the court, too, so it should be fun.”
