Monarch girls hoops moves past Ralston Valley to remain undefeated

The Coyotes defeated the Mustangs 61-39 at home on Tuesday night.

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — The Monarch girls basketball team has cruised through the early part of its season, but faced a big hurdle Tuesday night.

The Coyotes, who are ranked No. 6 in Class 5A in this week's CHSAA poll, squared off with No. 8 Ralston Valley in their first home game of the season.

Monarch surged in the second half to come away with the 61-39 victory and remain undefeated (now 9-0 overall) on the season.

The Coyotes had two players -- Arezo Safi and Amelia Rosin -- put up a game-high 17 points. Ralston Valley's top scorer was Sophia Sabus, who poured in 13 points.

Monarch's defense locked in during the second half, allowing just 3 points in the fourth quarter to secure the win.
