Silver Creek's full-court press too much for Berthoud

By Michael Hicks
Berthoud Recorder

LONGMONT — Lauren Wolfinger scored a game-high 20 points and Silver Creek’s full-court pressure defense resulted in 10 straight first-quarter points en route to a 55-28 girls’ basketball victory Friday night over the visiting Berthoud Lady Spartans.

A Sarah Loberg layup — her only points of the game — quickly tied the game at two in the game’s first 20 seconds, but Berthoud (4-5, 3-3 4A Northern Conference) didn’t score another field goal until early in the second quarter. By then, Silver Creek had run off 10 straight points and never looked back.

Jacy Drobner added 18 points, 11 in the first half, for the Lady Raptors (7-5, 4-5).

“We’ve got to settle down. We just throw the ball all over the place,” Berthoud head coach Randy Earl said. “Sometimes, we don’t even stop and think. We just wing it to somebody before we even know if they’re open or not. We’ve just got to settle down and take our time.”

Friday’s game was the second road contest in four nights in which the Lady Spartans had played the participants in last year’s 4A state championship game. On Tuesday, Berthoud dropped a 68-20 decision at two-time defending state champion Broomfield.

Against Silver Creek, senior Amy Ekart was the only Berthoud player to reach double figures, scoring 11 points.

Berthoud struggled to find any consistent offense against the Lady Raptors, going nearly six minutes to start both the third and fourth periods before scoring.
