Berthoud Boys, Girls to Open Tourney Play on the Road

By Michael Hicks
Berthoud Recorder

The Berthoud High School boys’ and girls’ basketball teams will start postseason play on the road Thursday in the 4A Northern Conference tournament.


The boys will play at Northridge in Greeley in a rematch of Tuesday night’s regular-season finale at Berthoud High School. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. The Spartans (8-11), the tournament’s ninth seed, have lost two straight entering the playoffs, including a 67-52 loss to the Grizzlies. Ian Cervantes scored a game-high 17 points to lead eighth-seeded Northridge (10-9).

The winner of that game will face either top-seeded Windsor or 16th-seeded Silver Creek in Saturday’s quarterfinals.

The Lady Spartans (7-12), seeded 10th in the girls tournament, travels to Windsor (10-9) in a first-round matchup. The game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start, but will be the second game of a doubleheader. The Windsor-Silver Creek boys game will start at 5:30 p.m.

The Berthoud girls, who snapped a four-game losing streak with a win at Northridge on Tuesday night, lost 44-38 at home to Windsor last month. The Lady Wizards’ Kaitlin Gault scored 17 points to lead Windsor in the first meeting.

The Berthoud-Windsor girls winner will face either Longmont or Greeley Central in Saturday’s tournament quarterfinals.
