— For 2 1/2 quarters Saturday, the Glenwood Springs-Steam­boat Springs girls basketball game was as close as it could get.

But midway through the third, the Demons found something and never looked back, turning a tied game into an easy 60-34 win.

“I came in at halftime and told them we needed to penetrate that defense,” Demons coach Bryan Derby said. “Their defense was dictating the game. I told our guards we need to start penetrating; we did, and things started rolling for us.”

The first quarter and change included six ties and eight lead changes, before Glenwood (14-3, 6-1) burst out. The game was tied at 25 at the 4:07 mark of the third quarter, before Glenwood scored the next 15 points to take a 40-25 lead. The Sailors (8-9, 3-4) went more than five minutes without a point and were outscored 38-12 in the second half.

“They were more aggressive, and they had more energy,” Steamboat coach John Ameen said. “It was little things. … They got more rebounds and more loose balls.”
