(L) GHS at Ogden 45-54

Gabe Mouritsen was the only Cowboys player to score in double digits (14), while Brigham Mulford and Ethan Powell led in rebounding with nine and eight boards, respectively.

Grantsville kept the score close against the Ben Lomond Tigers, and they only trailed by three (38-41)points heading into the fourth quarter. A 13-7 final frame sealed the deal for Ben Lomond and the team pulled away with the 54-45 victory.

(W) GHS vs. South Summit 54-49

Grantsville bounced back from their road loss against Ben Lomond in a home match against the South Summit Wildcats. Thanks to 28 combined points by Bryson Robers (16 points) and Gabe Mouritsen (12), the Cowboys were able to rally together and defeat the Wildcats 54-49.

The victory brings Grantsville’s record to 13-5, with their next game coming on Jan. 27 against Ben Lomond on the road.

(L) SHS at Uintah 54-68

Stallions players Blake Hales and Tobi Johnson led the team in scoring, netting a combined 29 points in the game. Their strong showing was not enough to overcome Uintah’s scoring output and Stansbury fell 54-68 to lose their 13th game of the season.

(L) SHS vs. Cedar Valley (see story)

(L) THS at Cottonwood 66-85

A first quarter 31-point outburst by the home team Cottonwood Colts set the stage for an uphill struggle for the Tooele Buffaloes boys basketball team. After trailing 31-19 after the first period, Tooele was able to keep up with Cottonwood, but unable to climb out of the deficit and ended up losing 66-85.

Despite the loss, several Buffaloes players scored in double figures and three-point shooting proved to be a big contributor to their scoring.

(L) THS vs. Payson 63-77

Tooele’s winless season continued last Friday, as the visiting Payson Lions fended off the Buffaloes 63-77. A 47-28 lead for Payson after the first half proved too much for Tooele to rebound from, as the team’s 35-point second half was not enough to close the gap.

With the loss, the Buffaloes’ record now sits at 0-17, with their next road game taking place on Jan. 27 against the Uintah Utes.

Girls basketball

(W) GHS vs. Ogden 58-36

In a game that saw two players score in double-digits, and one nearly posting a double-double, the Grantsville girls basketball team defeated the Ogden Tigers 58-36 in a decisive fashion.

After the first half ended with Grantsville leading 35-20, the Tigers were never able to make up any ground and netted only 16 points for the rest of the game. Matching that point total in the third quarter alone, the Cowboys tacked on another seven points in the fourth frame to seal the win.

Avery Allred led all Grantsville scorers, with 18 points, followed by Maile Bartley (12 points, nine rebounds) and Kodee Williams (10 points). McKenzie Allen also added eight assists in the game.

GHS at South Summit

The Cowboys girls basketball team won its ninth-straight victory last Friday night, beating the South Summit Wildcats by a convincing 70-33 score. 

Grantsville held the Wildcats to 17 points in the first half, while putting up 38 points of its own. The second half was just as stifling, as the Cowboys outscored South Summit 32-16 and sealed the victory.

Cowboys senior Mckenzie Allen piled on the points, scoring 22 and also added six rebounds and seven steals to her statline. Baylee Lowder finished second in scoring, posting 17 points in addition to five steals and four assists.

The win puts the team’s record at 15-2 and Grantsville’s next home game is Thursday against the Ben Lomond Scots. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.

GHS vs. Layton Christian Academy (late)

(L) SHS vs. Uintah 42-53

Despite a close first half, in which Stansbury led 23-21, the Stallions let the game slip away against the Uintah Utes and lost the match 42-3.

After Stansbury posted only four points in the third quarter, Uintah pulled away for the rest of the game on the heels of a 32-19 second half performance. In the loss, Anika Knudsen led her team in scoring with 11 points, and Brooke Jensen led the Stallions on the defensive end with three steals.

SHS at Cedar Valley

The Stallions rebounded from their loss against Uintah and completed a two-game split in their match against the Cedar Valley Aviators last Thursday. Holding the visitors to single-digit point totals in three of the four quarters, Stansbury pulled away with a 53-46 win.

Both Anika Knudsen and Brooke Jensen finished with 16 points in the game, with Knudsen adding 10 rebounds to complete the double-double. Tailor Palmer led on the defensive end, pulling down 21 boards in the nine minutes of the game she played.

The victory puts the team’s record at 6-9, with their next game at home against Hillcrest on Jan. 26. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.

SHS vs. Payson (late)

(L) THS vs. Cottonwood 39-70

Tooele’s lackluster performance in the second and third quarters of its game against the Cottonwood Colts ultimately led to a loss at home last Tuesday.

Following a 15-14 Colts lead after the first quarter, they outscored the Buffaloes 40-15 leading up to the final frame. After a 10-point fourth quarter by Tooele, the team allowed 15 against Cottonwood and the Colts finished off the game with a 70-39 win.

(L) THS at Payson 36-72

Things didn’t get any easier for the Buffaloes last Friday, as they struggled against the Payson Lions. It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that Tooele broke the 10-point mark and only scored 24 points in the three quarters prior. Meanwhile, Payson’s totals hovered around 20 points per quarter and the end result was a 72-36 victory for the Lions.

In the loss, Rylie Hogan recorded 15 points for the Buffaloes and Brinley Dunn followed behind her with five points of her own.

Following the lopsided defeat, the Buffaloes’ record now sits at 3-10. Their next home game is Jan. 26 against the Uintah Utes. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.
