Crowley County Chargers @ Rocky Ford Meloneer POST-GAME

And that’s a wrap from the “Melon Dome” the Chargers and Meloneers split the two varsity games tonight, Both games were briskly played and the refs allowed them to play. As I stated in the preview, both games were shootouts and came down to the last 2 minutes.

Lets start with the girls game, it was Crowley who jumped out to the early lead, but in the Santa Fe League no one should be considered out till the clock reads :00 in the 4th quarter. The Meloneers stormed back and won by a score of 45-41. Only bad thing for the Meloneers was that the Hoehne Farmers defeated the John Mall Panthers. Meaning Hoehne is the #6 seed, and Rocky is the #7 seed in the upcoming District Play-in Games. Rocky Ford will be hosting John Mall on Thursday evening at the Melon Dome. Other District pairings will be posted when they’re published.

Scoring Recap:

–Crowley County

Taylor Berg: 4

Clara Whitehead*: 12

Annie Brewer: 2

Katie Schwartz: 8

Alex Bauer: 2

Aisha Reed: 7

Unique Froese: 6

–Rocky Ford

Kaylee Soltero; 7

Stephanie Frantz*: 8

Selena Medina: 2

Mireya Trujillo: 2

Savana Stites: 3

Sarae Chavez: 3

Emi Romero: 10

Chantae Rodriguez: 1

Hannah Moore: 5

Feliciti Jaramillo: 4


Now to possibly the reason everyone packed the “Melon Dome” last night. The boy’s action! It was everything everyone hoped it was going to be, well worth the price of admission. The Chargers got off to a fast start gaining the early lead on the Meloneers, never count Rocky Ford out of a game though! The Meloneers stormed back and the ballgame was tied heading in to the half at 26. Scoring was pretty even in the third period with Rocky Ford taking a 3 point lead into the fourth quarter. They exploded out of the gate, and took a BIG 8 point lead with  5 minutes remaining. But as i stated in the Preview, the game came down to the free throw line. A late foul with 3.8 left on the clock sent Grady Carter to the line and he made 1 of 2. Thus giving the Chargers a 52-51 victory. Earning the Chargers the #2 seed and giving the Meloneers the #3.

Crowley County will host John Mall in the District 6 Pigtail game on Monday , while Rocky Ford will host Fowler also on Monday. The two winners wil then advance to the District 6 Tournament, next Thursday and Friday at Otero Junior College.

Be ready Santa Fe League Basketball fans, we’re in for a good one at the District 6 Tournament!

*=SECOM Player of the Game

Be on the lookout for updates this week, as i travel to cover the State Wrestling Championships!

Crowley County Chargers @ Rocky Ford Meloneers PREVIEW


The Crowley County Chargers travel 13 miles down Highway 71 and invade the “Melon Dome”, to do battle with the Meloneers of Rocky Ford. In quite possibly one of the biggest rivalries in the Arkansas Valley.

The Lady Chargers come into the match-up 5th in the Santa Fe League ( 7-11 Overall, 7-5 SFL), while the Lady Meloneers come in 7th in the Santa Fe League (6-13 Overall, 5-10 SFL). The Lady Chargers come in already having the 5th seed in the upcoming District 6 Pigtail games, as the Lady Meloneers are looking to win (and hoping for a Hoehne loss @John Mall tonight) to move up to the 6th spot heading into next weeks pigtails. Look for tonights game to be close as the Meloneers are looking to come out still sizzling from their 90-10 all out beating of Swallows last Thursday. Crowley County looks to improve as they narrowly beat Hoehne 46-45 last Thursday as well. Both teams looking for momentum heading into Districts next week!

Players to Watch For:

–Clara Whitehead & Madison Berg (Crowley County)

–Stephanie Frantz & Hannah Moore (Rocky Ford)


Now to the Boys side of things, this one is for the #2 seed in the District pigtail game next Tuesday! Ask John Tomky and he’ll tell you that I am on record saying that this match-up will have major implications on seeding in District 6.

The Chargers come in 2nd in the SFL (15-3 Overall, 12-3 SFL), while Rocky Ford comes in 1 game back in 3rd (14-5 Overall, 11-4 SFL). Like i stated above this game is BIG for both teams, both are wanting and in my opinion deserving of a 2 seed in the District Tournament. Look for this game to be a shootout, being decided at the free throw line. It’ll all come down to who can shoot the most free throws. Rocky comes in narrowly escaping with an 8-point victory over Swallows last Thursday, while Crowley comes in hoping to turn things around after being upset on the road by Hoehne 46-37.

Players to Watch For:

–Bradley Clabey & Bryce Buhr (Crowley County)

–Johnathan Montanez & David Trujillo (Rocky Ford)


So if you’re in the area make sure to stop by the “Melon Dome” and catch some great Santa Fe League Basketball action tonight. If you can’t we understand, so be sure to turn into and as John and I have the call live. Girls Varsity should tipoff around 6pm. We’ll see you at the “Melon Dome”!
