FARMER’S KORNER – Bishop Machebeuf’s high-octane offense was too much for the Summit High School girls basketball team Thursday at the SHS gym.The Buffaloes used a fast-break offense and scored multiple uncontested layups to cruise past the Tigers 68-61. SHS coach Dylan Hollingsworth said his team played with a lack of desire and hustle.”We just didn’t play with intensity,” Hollingsworth said. “Lethargic is the word I’m going to use, that’s the best way to put it.”

The Tigers (1-3) trailed by one point after the first quarter before Bishop Machebeuf (2-3) opened the flood gates. The Buffaloes outscored SHS 44-16 in the second and third periods. Bishop Machebeuf coach Ellie Kempfe said her team played sloppy despite the Buffs’ lopsided victory.”It was not good enough,” Kempfe said. “We missed shots right underneath the basket and that’s unacceptable, but the team came up here to get a road win and that’s what happened.”

Brianna Montoya directed a high-paced attack, as one of three players who scored in double-figures. Kempfe described Montoya as an unbelievably unselfish player who likes to get her teammates involved.”Brianna (Montoya) sees the floor exceptionally well,” Kempfe said. “She does a lot of different things for us. … She’s a very good player.”Alyssa Tallmadge scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds for SHS.

“You’re going to win some games and lose some games,” Hollingsworth said. “I don’t care about that. I just want my team to play hard for all four quarters and I don’t think they did that (Thursday).”Josh Salerno can be contacted at (970) 668-4633, or at jsalerno@summitdaily.com.
