PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Raiders outrun Falcons in Benton

BENTON — With the sectional tournaments getting under way next week, precious time remains for area girls basketball teams to make their final tuneups before crunch time arrives.

Fairfield and Northridge met up in a nonconference contest Tuesday night at Fairfield, and it was the Raiders emerging on the winning side with a 53-27 victory over the Falcons.

With the win, Northridge improved to 17-4. Fairfield fell to 12-8.

The tone was set for this one early, as Northridge led 12-5 at the first stop and opened the second stanza with an 8-0 run to push out to a 20-8 lead.

The Raiders led 28-10 at halftime.

Fairfield got good dribble penetration and a number of good looks at the basket in the first half, but shots would not fall.

That left Northridge coach Doug Springer not all that pleased with his defense.

“I told the girls that if we play defense like that  in the sectional tournament, we’ll be one-and-done,” Springer said.  

Fairfield coach Brodie Garber was pleased with his team’s effort, especially early.

“And I thought we made a nice run there at the start of the fourth,” Garber said.

Indeed, after trailing by as many as 23 points in the second half, the Falcons were able to cut the Northridge advantage to 17 midway through the final frame before the Raiders closed with a 10-1 run to ice the game.   

Haley Schrock led the Raiders with 19 points. Madison Schrock added 15.

Jenna Kieper paced the Falcons with 11 points.

Haley Schrock said she and her teammates had been working lately on getting back to the fundamentals, and for Northridge, that starts with defense.

“We kind of took a step back tonight,” Haley Schrock said. “But we will get back to practice and work on our defense.”

Fairfield closes out the 2012-13 regular season Thursday night on the road with a nonconference contest at Manchester. Northridge finishes up its NLC slate Friday night at home against Wawasee,

The Raiders were a 36-20 winner in the J.V. contest. Ellie Lengacher led the J.V. Raiders with 10 points. Baleigh Carithers added eight.

Liz Beer paced the J.V. Falcons with eight points.
