It was a busy night in South Range for the Lady Raiders’ regular season home finale. It was pack the gym night, it was senior night for Emily Irons, and Izzy Lamparty was set up to reach 1000 career points. The Raiders capped off the night with a dominating win over Girard 53-31.
Girard has come into the night winners of 7 of the last 8 games. In the first quarter it seemed like it was going to be a tight game as the Raiders only led by 3 9-6. However, once the scoreboard switched to the second quarter, the Raiders switched on their offense. They outscored the Indians 17-8 in the second to lead 26-14 at the break. Their domination would continue through the second half as the closest Girard would get for the rest of the night was 13. This was a much different story than the first matchup in which the Raiders struggled through a 47-40 win.
Izzy Lamparty got her 1000th point about half way through the first quarter off an offensive rebound and put back. It was her only bucket from the floor in the first half. A great second half would help her finish with 17. Izzy is the eighth player in the South Range program to reach 1000 points. The last player to do so was Madison Durkin in 2017.
Lexi Giles led the Raiders with 21 points.
Girard was led by Sieasia Triplett with 12.
South Range travels to Mooney on Wednesday. Girard will host Lakeview on Thursday.
