RAIDERS SHAKE OFF THE RUST

CANFIELD OH- The Raiders hadn’t played in seven days coming in to Thursday’s conference matchup with Jefferson. The rust of a week off definitely  showed early. That was something Jefferson tried hard to take advantage of. They led a lot of the first quarter, and a good chunk of the second.  Tatum Bordeaux hit a three in the second quarter to put Jefferson ahead 10-7.  That is when the Raiders woke up.  They ended the first half on a 7-0 run, and extended it to a  26-3 run by the end of the third.  It was all South Range from that point as they won 41-21.

Emma Cunningham continues to play well at home as she led the Raiders with 17 points. Sidney Penick was also in double figures with 11 points for the Raiders.  Taylor McClish put in a solid night for South Range finishing with 7.

Jefferson was led by Bordeaux who finished with 8 points.  Mia Contenza added 5 points for the Falcons.

South Range looks ahead to a non conference matchup with an old rival.  They’ll travel to Springfield on Saturday for a 12:30 tip-off.  Jefferson continues NE8 play on Monday as they travel to Niles.
