The Coal Ridge High School girls basketball team started slowly in the first game back from the holiday break.

But when the Titans finally picked up the momentum, they rolled to a big victory over the Skiers on a snowy Friday night at Aspen High School.

After the scored was tied at 4-4 early in the game, the Titans broke out on a 14-4 run, capped by a long 2-pointer from Mariela Martinez.

From the 14-4 lead after the first quarter, Coal Ridge rolled on behind 16 points from Paige Ryan and 10 points each from Amanda Wenzel and sophomore Kaitlyn Detlefsen.

Alicia Hampton added nine points for the Coal Ridge girls, who improved to 6-1 overall and 4-0 in the Western Slope League.

Aspen’s early baskets in the opening quarter came from Megan Hanson and Mary Landis.

But turnovers foiled the Skiers through much of the first three quarters.

They would finish with 31 turnovers on the night.

Erika Detrick, an AHS senior, managed the Skiers’ only basket of the second quarter.

Jessica Furr, an AHS sophomore, canned a 3-pointer for the Skiers in the second half.

Derick added a couple more baskets to lead the Skiers in scoring with six points.

Hanson scored four points.

Zara Iacono added a fourth-quarter basket for the Skiers (0-6, 0-3 in league play).

The Aspen girls will host Moffat County at 2:30 p.m. today in another Western Slope League game.
