Burns Broncs

CHEYENNE – No. 3-ranked Rawlins outscored Burns 17-8 during the fourth quarter to break open a tight game and win 46-36.

“We had opportunities, but we couldn’t make shots,” Broncs coach Barry Ward said. “That’s a solid team. They beat us by 38 last week, so this was probably the best defensive game we have played the whole year.

“We just need to put it all together. I’m really proud of our kids’ effort.”

Senior Olyvia Pacheco scored 17 for Rawlins (14-5 overall, 4-0 Class 3A South-

east Quadrant), while classmate Miranda Wagner added 14. Brooklynn Arnold chipped in with 11.

Burns (5-14, 0-4) got 11 points from Jaden Gipfert, while Rylee Ward added eight points, eight rebounds, seven steals and six assists.
