Soroco boys beat North Park

— It wasn’t exciting and that was no problem at all for the Soroco High School boys basketball team.

The Rams entered Saturday having won four in a row, only one in which they were comfortably in the lead throughout.

They had no trouble controlling the game Saturday at home against North Park, winning 46-22.

“The kids have been playing a lot of those same (North Park) players since middle school, and this was one of the first times we took care of the game from the beginning,” Soroco coach Shawn Hayes said. “We extended the lead throughout and didn’t let it become a battle at the end. That was nice. The kids enjoyed that.”

An ankle injury kept Storm Veilleux from playing in a Friday night win against DeBeque, but Saturday he made up for his absence. He got his team started, draining a 3-point shot to open the first quarter, then closed the quarter with one, as well.

He finished with 14 points.

“It was very nice to have Storm back,” Hayes said. “You could tell offensively and defensively, he really gets us going and keeps us cohesive.”

Eric Logan scored seven points in the first quarter and eight in the third to finish with a team-high 15.

The win leaves the team 12-5 and 7-2 in a tie for second in the league, a game behind Vail Christian. The Rams will close out their league schedule Friday with a trip to Hayden.
