Soroco boys hoops splits 2 games during weekend

Soroco boys basketball team beats De Beque, falls to Vail Mountain

— The Soroco High School boys basketball team split a pair of games during the weekend, beating De Beque, 57-43, on Friday before falling, 60-55, on Saturday to Vail Mountain.

Against De Beque, the two teams battled for much of the first half. De Beque led early in the second half, before Soroco went on a run.

The Rams outscored the Dragons, 35-22, in the second half to run away with the game.

Against Vail Mountain, Soro­­co trailed throughout. The team was down 11 at halftime and trailed by eight going into the fourth quarter. The Rams cut the Gore Rangers' lead to 56-55 late, but Vail Mountain hit two shots to secure the win.

Soroco now prepares to go on the road Tuesday in a district preliminary tournament game. The Rams won't know until today what team they play.

"We're scoring some points in the second half," Rams coach Andy Johnson said. "That's a good thing going into the tournament. Our offensive production is getting better. We just have to figure out how to play better at the start."
