RAIDERS WIN STREAK CONTINUES

MAHONING VALLEY SPORTS

HUBBARD, Ohio –

South Range (5-6) has four Raiders post double digits for their third straight conference road victory.

Winless on the season, the Hubbard Eagles (0-12) road the back of Gavin Rybicki’s strong first three minutes to take an early 7-2 lead. South Range’s Landon Moore would respond with a strong finish to the period, finishing with all seven of the South Range points to close the gap to just three at the end of one.

Moore would add four points to his total in the second quarter and would receive assistance from Luke Rohan and Ayden Leon, each adding in three points, sending the game into a tie of 17 all at the break.

Coming out of the break, the South Range Raiders would turn great defense into easy offense. Five different Raiders would score three or more points in the third quarter that saw South Range post 22.

Trailing by nine to start the fourth quarter, Hubbard went on multiple runs to draw the game within two possessions, but could never string together stops with scores to take back the lead. South Range would escape with the victory, 53-49.
