NEW MIDDLETOWN OH- On Saturday afternoon two teams that were once the biggest of rivals took the floor again to renew a nostalgic grudge match. If you look at the last several years of these two programs playing each other before the hiatus, it was South Range that was the dominant team. The only Tigers win over the Raiders you’ll find since 2010 was a Callie Ford buzzer beater in the jungle in 2014. But now in 2023 it’s a new Tigers team, and the tables have turned. Springfield eyed down the ghosts of the past and dominated their way to a 47-33 win over the Raiders. It was the Tigers 13th win of the season.
Jacey Mullen was an unstoppable force for the Tigers as she bullied her way to 23 points. Jameka Brungard used her dominance inside to contribute 8 points. Mariana Tuscano was able to rack in 7 points.
Emma Cunningham led the Raiders with 8 points on the day. Gwen Lowry had one of her better games of the season adding 7 to the Raiders offense. Taylor McClish chipped in 6 points.
Both teams get right back to conference play on Monday as Springfield will travel to Mineral Ridge, and South Range will hit the road to Poland.
