PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Raiders shake off slow start, win

MIDDLEBURY — A Saturday afternnon matinee basketball game two days after Thanksgiving can be a dicey proposition. And Saturday afternoon at Northridge, both the Raiders and visiting Hobart came out of the gate sort of sluggish.

But the Raiders (5-0) shook off those cobwebs soon enough, putting together a late second-quarter and pulling away from the Brickies for a 51-30 win in a nonconference contest.

The loss was the first of the season  for Hobart (5-1).

Northridge coach Doug Springer said a variety of factors contributed to his team’s slow start.

“It was two days after Thansgiving, and our third game of the week,” Springer said. “We were on defense for a long first possession, and that kind of took away our legs. But we rebounded.”

Indeed, neither team could find the basket early: Hobart was the first team to crack the scoreboard, with a bucket at the 4:25 mark of the first quarter.

Northridge led just 8-4 at the first stop.

Leading 13-11 midway through the second stanza, the Raiders finally found their stride. They closed the quarter on a 15-2 run, which included five straight 3-pointers, to lead 28-13 at intermission.

The Raiders led by as many as 22 in the second half.

Northridge senior  guard Madison Schrock said the busy week was good preparation for later in the season.”

“When we get to sectionals, we might have to play three games in a week,” Schrock said.

Shrock led the Raiders with 17 points. Haley Schrock had nine and Taylor Miller also chipped in with nine points.

Hobart coach Mike Hamacher said his team had trouble defensively with the quick Raiders.

“We couldn’t guard the ball, and then you have to depend on help,” Hamacher said. “That leaves someone open, and Northridge did a nice job of finding the open shooter.”

NOrthridge returns to action on Tuesday night when the Raiders will travel to Westview. Tipoff is set for approximately 7:30 p.m.
