CANFIELD OH- South Range has been a tough place to play for Girard over the years. They have never beaten the Raiders in Canfield since the NE8 was born. Earlier this season the Indians got their first conference victory over the Raiders, and now they eyed a season sweep. After a close first quarter, it was a big 20-6 2nd quarter that gave Girard the distance they’d need. Even though the Raiders tried to rally in the second half, the 17 point halftime lead was too much to come back from. The closest the Raiders got was eight points. The Indians would go on to secure the win 44-35.
Sieasia Triplett led the Indians with 13 points. Girard was pretty balanced on offense having four players score more than 7. Abbie Rafferty was also in double figures with 10 points. Allison Durkin chipped in 9 points to the offense. Mia Malito added 7 points as well.
South Range was paced by Sydney Penick with 11 points. Emma Cunningham tried to Will her team back into the game scoring all 7 of her points in the second half. Devin Sauerwein and Maddie Dado both finished the night with 5.
Girard will take this big win in stride and move on to play at Niles on Monday. South Range will play their last home game of the season on Monday against Struthers.
