— Just about everything went right for the Glenwood Springs girls basketball team Saturday in a 62-21 win against Steamboat Springs.

The Demons (15-3 overall, 6-1 Western Slope League) opened the game on a 16-2 run and kept pouring it on from there, taking a 22-4 lead after a quarter and extending it to 36-12 by halftime.

“We just knew where everyone else was on offense,” said Kenzie Nelson-Buehler, who had 13 points. “We found the open person, and that’s what we really needed to do.”

On the flip side, the Sailors couldn’t find their stride in any part of the game.

“We didn’t come out very well at all,” Sailors coach John Ameen said. “That carried over to the rest of the game. They shot 70 percent from two-point range. At the same time, they were wide-open shots. We didn’t get to our spots defensively.”

Maggie Crouch and Nikki Fry led Steamboat (9-8, 3-4) with six points each. Eryn Rinck scored five for the Sailors, who next play at 6 p.m. Friday at Battle Mountain.
