BUENA VISTA—Despite a huge offensive performance by Demon sophomore Kenneth Schell, the Alamosa Mean Moose overcame a fourth quarter comeback attempt to defeat the Buena Vista Demons 50-38 here at Buena Vista High School on Thursday night.

Schell scored 23 of the Demons’ 38 points on his own to pace the Demon offensive attack. That attack was balanced out by a huge performance by Alamosa senior Zach Meyer. Meyer scored 14 points of his own and clinched 12 rebounds.

Alamosa senior Sam Bilderbeck, who normally is a solid scorer for the Moose, got himself into foul trouble early because within 30 seconds of the second quarter, he was already charged with three personal fouls.

The game, which started off with Alamosa opening up an 8-2 lead, looked like it was going to be a close one as the Demons scored seven unanswered points.

Alamosa then took advantage of turnovers and missed shots to take build their lead over the second and third quarters.

Alamosa had a 10-point lead entering the final quarter. The Demons crawled their way back into the game and tied the game at 38.

Just when things looked like there would be a battle to the end, Alamosa took complete control of the game and scored the final 12 points of the game for the win.

Sophomore Cody Garcia added 13 points in the game to be the teams second highest scorer.

The boys will be in action today, Friday, when they host La Junta Tigers in a doubleheader with the girls' team.

The boys game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
