5A Cottonwood High School traveled to Bear River to take on the Bears after a long Holiday break. The Bears had not played for nearly two weeks before hosting the Colts but there appeared to be no rust on the engine as the Bears played inspired basketball for 32 minutes and tamed the Colts in this one. An efficient defense coupled with an offense that found it’s groove throughout the game put a halt to any ideas that Cottonwood may have had for tripping up the Bears. Bear River also played with a great deal of energy as they out-rebounded the taller Colt team by 7 rebounds and was led by a great effort by Parker Coombs as he totaled 12 points and 11 rebounds in the contest. In addition, four Bear River players scored in double-figures led by Wyatt Roholts 19. He was closely followed by Jake Dahle and Mark Huber both with 15 and the already mentioned 12 by Coombs. Ren Fonnesbeck also chipped in 8.
