Steamboat girls sink in second half

— A slow second half offensively sank the Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball team Friday in a season-opening trip to play against Roaring Fork, which was hosting the Brenda Patch Tournament.

The Sailors led at half but went on to lose, 40-29.

Steamboat was up 16-15 at half and trailed 27-25 after the third quarter. Roaring Fork scored 13 in the fourth, however, and Steamboat couldn’t answer, falling to 0-1 on the season.

Steamboat plays again Saturday in the tournament.
