CANFIELD, OH– A solid, stingy defense and just enough offense enabled South Range to oust Columbiana 52-32 here Friday night.  The Raiders frustrated the Clippers attack all night long not allowing them to find any rhythm.

The defensive nature of the game was evident from the outset.  Both teams tenaciously challenged each other making offense difficult to execute.  It was the Raiders though who were able to open up a lead late in the first quarter and control the action the rest of the way.  Nick Matus had a strong start scoring 7 points giving the Raiders a 16-7 lead after one, and South Range took a 25-12 advantage into the locker room.

Columbiana kept the game within reach through three quarters getting as close as ten points with 3:20 to play in the third.  South Range led 37-25 heading to the final stanza before steadily pulling away.

 Chris Brooks led all scorers with 15.  Jaxon Andersen had 10 while Ben Irons, Dante Digaetano, and Matus chipped in with 7 apiece.  Sean Whitehead scored all of his 14 in the second half, and Matt Mazei netted 9 for the Clippers whose strong second half of the season ended with a 13-11 record.

South Range (17-6) head to Salem for a District semi-final against Canton Central Catholic Tuesday at 7 p.m.


Dripping with swagger, South Range Senior-Jaxon Anderson has shown maturity in his efforts on and off the court.  Normally, it’s Anderson’s smirks or bubbly personality that gets under the skin of opponents- but this year Jaxon is leading in a different way: that of a veteran presence.

Still one of the top point-scorers, and ball-handlers for the Raiders, Anderson has evolved into a more complete leader for the underclassmen.  There are times on the court where Jaxon will throw his arm over a teammates shoulder and crack a joke one second, and talk strategy the next.  Leadership is an influence, and Jaxon Anderson is the ultimate influencer for this Raiders Squad.  Although, he’ll never shy away from a little “discussion” with his “friends” of a different uniform.

All the great things that he does on the court, doesn’t even hold a candle to what he’s doing away from it.  Anderson’s Senior Project is based around Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation; a non-profit organization that helps families and children dealing with childhood cancer.  Anderson has pointed to his performance on the court to help raise money and awareness for this cause.  In March, the senior will partner with YSN to hold a charity All-Star game with all proceeds of ticket sales and souvenirs going back to ALSF.
