Rustlers post 2-0 weekend mark, beating two 'Easterns'

Dec 3, 2013 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

One was a five-point win over an Eastern Utah team that beat CWC by 20 points last month.

Central Wyoming College's Rustlers got some early-season payback Friday in a 60-55 win vs. Eastern Utah in Rock Springs.

The Rustler men had lost to Eastern Utah 70-50 on Nov. 2 in a basketball tournament in Idaho.

CWC also held off Eastern Wyoming on Saturday afternoon 68-65 for a 2-0 weekend in Rock Springs.

"We were solid against Eastern Utah," CWC coach Pat Rafferty said.

"We played a really good last three or four minutes against them. We didn't make sloppy plays against Eastern."

Eastern Wyoming had a chance to send the game into overtime but came up short against the Rustlers.

Eastern Wyoming plays this year in the Region IX South sub-region division. CWC is stacked in the North sub-region.
