In what could go down as the most intense game of the year, the Glenwood Demons upset the No. 5 Steamboat Sailors 54-51 on the road to improve their Western Slope League record to 4-0 on the season.

Steamboat came into Saturday’s game with an 11-2 record and was undefeated in league play. Steamboat was lead by their senior standout, Mac Riniker, who stands at 6-foot-5 and had 243 points coming into Saturday’s matchup. Along with Riniker, Steamboat is strengthened by Aden Knaus and Tyler Doyne who each had 133 and 97 points coming into the game.

Glenwood, on the other hand, was lead by seniors, Chano Gonzalez, and Angel Garcia. Gonzalez lead the team with 172 points coming in, while Garcia came in with 155 points. Glenwood held a 10-4 record coming in and were riding a seven-game win streak.

Starting off, Glenwood played catch up most of the first half as Steamboat jumped out to a 14-8 lead. Glenwood rallied to enter half time only down by 4, with the Sailors up 25-21.

Glenwood would find its groove in the second half, as they would score 22 points in the third quarter alone, surpassing their total points from the first half. The offensive outburst left the score 43-41 in Glenwood’s favor with one quarter to play. The fourth quarter saw multiple lead changes, but with time running out and the game knotted up at 51-51, Garcia hit a 3-point shot that would prove to be the winner, as Glenwood survived 54 to 51.

The win gave Glenwood an 11-4 record overall, with Gonzalez and Garcia combining for 33 points. The loss dropped Steamboat to 11-3, but Riniker dropped 23 points while Knaus managed 19 points for the Sailors.

Steamboat, now at 12-3 after defeating Eagle Valley 68-47 this past Tuesday, will travel to Summit High School this Friday to take on the Huskies (5-11) for another league matchup.

Glenwood will host the Battle Mountain Huskies (6-7) this coming Friday for another league match up. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.
