Falcons take flight for 3rd

BHS boys basketball team finishes 4th at the IML Tournament

After host Alamosa knocked Centauri from championship contention, the Falcons took flight in the third-place game.

Centauri followed up a 20-point first quarter with 25 in the second against the Bayfield High School boys basketball team, then held onto third place in the Intermountain League Tournament with a 68-52 victory Saturday in Alamosa.

Bayfield, which fought through a difficult 3-19 (1-9 IML) season, rallied with a spirited second half, outscoring the Falcons 18-12 in the third, 12-11 in the fourth and 30-23 overall.
