Berthoud Boys Basketball Team Routs Highland

Spartans Top Huskies 67-45 By Dan Karpiel Sports Writer   Even in the world of sports, bigger does not always mean better. The Berthoud and Highland boys high school basketball teams learned that fact on Tuesday evening as the Spartans routed the Huskies 67-45. Even before the opening tipoff, Highland appeared to have a significant advantage in the game thanks to having trio of players who measure in at 6’4” or taller, including 6’7” senior Kyle Stuehm.

Las Vegas Deals Eagles’ First Home Shutout in

LOVELAND, Colo. - The Las Vegas Wranglers blanked the Colorado Eagles, 5-0, handing them their first home shutout in the ECHL & just their second at home in team history.  Joe Fallon stopped 26 shots, netting his league-leading 22nd win in the process, as the 2nd-place Wranglers (27-13-4, 58 pts.) were too much for a depleted Eagles lineup (just 14 skaters) in the second game of this week's three-game set between the squads. The teams played an even first frame in terms of chances & ... Full Story

Andrew Penner stonewalled the Wranglers in the first half of the opening period, moving from his right to left to stop Lampe on a back-door feed seven minutes in.  Then two minutes later, he thwarted ...

ONTARIO, Calif. - The Colorado Eagles fell, 2-4, to the Ontario Reign, splitting their weekend series at Citizens Business Bank Arena.  Ontario scored the game's first three goals before the game's mid-point, giving them all they would need as four different players in all put the puck past Colorado's Kyle Jones. The home team dominated the first portion of the opening period, out-shooting Colorado, 11-2, early on and striking first when Bill Bagron found the back of the net just 4:20 in -- ... Full Story

Ulanski Plays Hero Again in Back-and-Forth Game

Brush Takes The Broom To Berthoud Basketball

Boys and Girls Teams Lose to Beetdiggers By Dan Karpiel Sports Writer   The Berthoud High boys basketball team had no trouble finding the rim in their Friday night game with the Brush Beetdiggers. Getting the ball through the net for points, however, was a different story. The Spartans lost 48-42 to their 3A Patriot League rivals thanks in large part to a dismal 14-for-58 shooting effort. The loss drops Berthoud to 6-5 on the season with a 2-2 mark in conference play. The Spartans were ... Full Story

                Janet Evans And Her Olympic Dream                           Not so fast…….. It was sometime in 2000, in some place like New York, Los Angeles or Boston, when I thought I would be seeing Janet Evans for the last time.
