Raiders outrace Warriors on special night

Basketball takes back seat to battling cancer at Northridge.

(Continued)

Northridge went on to lead 38-17 at halftime.

“This is probably the best carryover from practice to a game we have had in my seven years here,” Springer said. “We talked in practice how we were going to defend Westview’s two bigs (6-1 sophomore Maria McCoy and 5-11 classmate Grace Hales). McCoy likes to score on the inside and we made it tough for her to catch the ball all night. We put two players on her.”

McCoy was held to two points while Hales netted a game-high 21.

“You have to tip your hat to Hales,” Springer said. “She got her points but we made her work for every one of them. There were no easy points for her in this game.”

Westview coach Randy Yoder said. “Northridge took it to us. They are a really good team. I told the girls after the game that my goal is for us to become a team like Northridge.

“Northridge’s defense made it hard for us to get into our offense. All night long we seemed to be starting things about six to eight feet farther out that we normally do. They did a good job on McCoy who had three or four inches on the players guarding her. They were doubling her and made it hard for her to get shots off.”

The Raiders were up 54-25 at the end of the third period before being outscored 11-0 by the Warriors in the fourth.

“We coasted in the fourth,” Springer said. “We are not going to go out and run the score up on any team.”

Morgan Miller led the Raiders with 15 points, Senior Mikaela Zook chipped in with 11, junior Taylor Miller nine, sophomore Kelly Miller six, Lengacher five, O’Dell and senior Molly Bontrager both four.

Also for Westview, senior Brooke Yoder had five points, junior Kristen Duff and sophomore Riley Hochstetler both four and junior Kaitlyn Warren two points.

Northridge (5-0) hosts Fort Wayne Snider Saturday. Westview (3-2) is at Bremen Thursday.

The Raiders were 27-18 winners in the JV contest. Sophomore Bailey Carithers scored seven points for Northridge and freshman Taryn Pruitt five for Westview.
