Demons’ game vs. Pagosa canceled

DHS girls head to Palisade tournament

The Demons and Pirates will have to wait at least a year to get together on the basketball court.

The Durango High School girls basketball team, citing scheduling issues, had to cancel Thursday’s scheduled home matchup with Pagosa Springs, with the two schools reaching a mutual agreement to step aside.

Durango has games set for Friday vs. Cheyenne South (Wyo.) and Saturday against Palisade, with both games scheduled to take place at the Palisade Tournament.

With the Pagosa Springs game, DHS would have had one more scheduled game than the allowable 19-game limit mandated by CHSAA.

The Durango boys also will play two games against Cheyenne South and Palisade in the weekend tournament.
