Lady Broncs beat Riverton team

Jan 10, 2014 - By Craig Blumenshine, Staff Writer

The Riverton Lady Wolverines struggled to find an offensive rhythm and fell to the Sheridan Lady Broncs 47-31 Thursday evening in the first round of the Bill Strannigan East vs. West Tournament in Wolverine Gym.

It was Riverton's (2-7) first home game of the season.

"We did not play very well," head coach Ron Porter said.

The Lady Wolverines fell behind early and did not score their first goal of the game until the 5:24 mark of the second quarter, when Morgan Doyle's bucket gave Riverton 9 points to Sheridan's 15.

"Our shooting was atrocious," Porter said.

With her team trailing by as many as 13 points, Savannah Salisbury drained a three-point shot with 4:31 left to play that had the Lady Wolverines down by eight at 37-29. But freshman Trinity Goggles' bucket at the 3:09 mark was all Riverton could manage down the stretch, and Sheridan pulled away with the win.

The Lady Broncs' Taylor Townsend led all scorers with 15, and Sheridan's Ribbi Ryan added 12.

Kiley Ridgway scored 12 for Riverton, and Goggles and Camey Fegler both added seven points each.

In the other Thursday tournament game, Laramie slid by Evanston 45-36 in overtime.

The Lady Wolverines will continue to play in the tournament at 5:30 p.m. Friday against Laramie. On Saturday, the Lady Wolverines will host Cheyenne South at 3 p.m., one hour earlier than originally published.
