Prep sports roundup: Steamboat basketball girls team holds on
January 16, 2010
Steamboat Springs — Hannah Moore canned a 3-point shot late in the Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball team's game at Delta on Friday, giving her team a 45-44 victory and keeping the squad perfect in league play.
That the team even needed her heroics came as a bit of a surprise after Steamboat led by 10 points at halftime.
"It was up down and all around the whole game," Sailors coach John Ameen said. "We came out real strong, but we didn't shoot well from the line. We compounded that by not taking care of things at the defensive end."
Colleen King finished with 19 points. Moore had 12.
