After a tough loss on Friday night to Nordonia, the South Range Lady Raiders turned things around with a win Saturday over Cleveland Shaw 58-23.
The scoring started quickly as Lexi Gules nailed a three in the Raiders’ first possession. This seemed to loosen things up for the offense, who shot a lot better than the night before. The defense of the Raiders played just as hard as they did to open the season. They used physical pressure defense to force turnovers that lead to quick buckets. They held Shaw to just 12 first half points. Another key to success was the wonderful passing ability of the team. As a group, the Raiders finished with 16 assists, led by freshman Gabby Lamparty.
Izzy Lamparty led the offense with 18 points and 7 rebounds. Lexi Giles was also in double figures finishing with 10.
The Raiders return to action Thursday night as they travel to Lakeview to open NE8 play.
