Spartans' Comeback Comes up Short in 60-50 Loss at Fossil Ridge

By Michael Hicks
Berthoud Recorder

FORT COLLINS — Chris Hansen hit three 3-pointers in the final four minutes of regulation as host Fossil Ridge held off a furious second-half rally to defeat Berthoud’s boys’ basketball team, 60-50, on Tuesday night.

The Spartans (5-7, 5-4 4A Northern Conference) trailed 39-22 at halftime before rallying to cut their deficit to four at 45-41 early in the fourth quarter.

Berthoud outscored the SabreCats, 16-6, in the third quarter, including an opening 8-0 run to get the game back into single digits. But after Shane Hart’s jumper from the wing with 3 minutes, 48 seconds left in regulation kept Berthoud within six at 49-43, Hansen hit back-to-back 3-pointers to push Fossil Ridge’s lead back to 12. The Spartans never got closer than nine points the rest of the way.

“We took a bad three and gave them a three on the other end,” Berthoud head coach Pete Scheck said. “Then we let 24 (Hansen), a pretty good shooter, we were in front of him, but we gave him two looks and he knocked them down. Those were the last two nails in the coffin right there.”

Luke Dorlac led the SabreCats (10-3, 8-2) with 18 points, 12 of which coming in the first half when Fossil Ridge attacked Berthoud in the low post. B.C. Dawson added 16 points and Hansen scored 13, nine in the fourth quarter.

Joel Maly led Berthoud with 18 points. Hart finished with 13 and Ryan Barron scored 12.
