Thursday's roundup: James Irwin's Greene scores 19 off the bench in girls' hoops
James Irwin 44, Dolores Huerta 13
At James Irwin: Amanda Greene came off the bench to score a game-high and career-high 19 points, including nine in the fourth, to help James Irwin (6-12, 5-8 3A Tri-Peak East) handle Dolores Huerta (0-19, 0-14) on Thursday.
Greene, a junior guard who entered the game averaging 1.5 points per game, scored six in the first, two in the second, two in the third and capped it off with nine in the fourth. She also nabbed seven steals, five rebounds and three assists.
“You know how it is when it comes together and you have one of those nights,” James Irwin coach Robb Kelley said. “She’s a hard worker, and it came together for her tonight.
"She was all over the place.”
Seven other Jaguars joined Greene on the scoresheet on senior night at James Irwin. Kateri Felix had seven points for the Jags, who should finish either fifth or sixth in league heading into next week’s district tournament. They conclude the regular season against Ellicott on Saturday.
Rampart 55, Pine Creek 44
At Pine Creek: Cassidy Budge scored a game-high 18 points and Macy Myers added 14, as Rampart (12-9, 4-4 5A Metro) evened its record in league play.
Victoria Mondy grabbed eight rebounds, blocked eight shots and scored nine points for the Rams, who led 25-10 at the half.
Kayla Travis led Pine Creek (9-12, 2-6) with 16 points. Jayne Lydiatt scored nine.
Valor Chr. 79, Liberty 67
At Valor Christian: Despite four players scoring in double figures, Liberty (12-8) couldn't keep up with Valor Christian (18-4).
Caden Nixon scored a team-high 17 points for the Lancers, Garet Bohuslavsky added 13, and AJ Bohuslavsky and Dallin Page each chipped in 10.
Valor Christian outscored the Lancers 45-34 over the middle two quarters, which proved to be the difference.
Palmer 5, Pueblo County 3
At Sertich: Sam Horning and Brandon Driscoll each scored a pair of goals, as Palmer (6-11-1, 4-8-1) continued its hot streak late in the season.
While the Terrors can’t make the playoffs, they’ve been on a roll, winning three of their last four heading into Friday’s finale against Lewis-Palmer. If they can win that game the Terrors would finish in ninth place, one spot out of the postseason.
Driscoll, Horning and Hayden Hoover each finished with three points, Hoover’s all coming by way of assists. Goalie Josh Robinson stopped 20-of-23 shots in the win.
During its run, Palmer has beaten Cheyenne Mountain, Doherty and Pueblo County (8-11, 4-10).
Mountain Vista 11, Cheyenne Mountain 1
At Highlands Ranch: Cheyenne Mountain’s season came to a disappointing end, as the Indians (4-14-1, 4-10) fell to Mountain Vista (16-3, 12-2) on the road Thursday night.
Cheyenne Mountain, which will miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season, trailed 7-0 before Ryan Case scored his team-leading 15th goal of the season.
Despite the rough season for the Indians, Case’s 15 goals had him ranked tied for 13th in the conference heading into the final days of the regular season.
