Area basketball: Coahoma boys, girls struggle at C-City

Coahoma boysCOLORADO CITY — Coahoma head coach Kim Nichols said Colorado City was solid on defense and Friday’s game proved just that.The Bulldogs dropped a District 3-2A road game at Colorado City 54-26, giving them their fourth district loss of the season. Nichols said his team had a good first half, but the Bulldogs weren’t able to pull it all together for four quarters. They were only down by six at the half. A 21-point third from the Wolves didn’t help Coahoma, though. The Bulldogs get their first crack at Denver City on Tuesday as the second half of district play approaches.

Minnie Goodblanket is battling a knee injury and Lynzi Ferrell has a shoulder injury. The flu also hit the team hard last week. Despite dealing with injuries, head coach Mitzi Bell said the Bulldogettes have to find a spark as they fell to 2-5 in district play. It starts with making sure they win home games and Tuesday is a good time to try to get back on track with Denver City visiting.
