Maly, Spartans Fend off Silver Creek

By Taylor Lee
Berthoud Recorder

The Berthoud Spartans boys’ basketball team broke a two-game losing streak with a 59-58 victory over the Silver Creek Raptors on Friday night.

The game was nothing short of intense, which is one thing the Spartans have been talking about needing for the entire game, not just in stretches.

Though the Raptors’ Hunter Storaci scored the game’s first points, Berthoud was quick to tie it up.

Junior Joel Maly led the Spartans with 24 points. Senior Jeff Shields added 10 points and junior Shane Hart scored nine. TJ Adams led Silver Creek with 17 points, while Storaci scored 15 and Mitch Machmuller added 12.

Berthoud’s offense exploded to start the third quarter. An early Maly basket gave the Spartans a four-point lead. Then with assistance from fellow senior Shields, Ryan Barron added two more points. Barron also assisted Maly on a play to give Berthoud an eight-point lead.

But with two minutes left in the game, Silver Creek closed the gap to 58-55. Adams scored two more points to pull Silver Creek to within one and the teams traded a free throw before Shields gained possession of the ball with less than 5 seconds remaining and was able to run the clock out.
