GIRLS BASKETBALL: Raiders roll over West Noble in opener

Raiders roll over West Noble in opener

MIDDLEBURY – Season openers can be somewhat like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates: You never know what you’re going to get.

That was going to be especially true for Northridge’s girls basketball team this season, as the Raiders adjust to the graduation of standouts Haley and Madison Schrock.

Thursday night at home against West Noble, the Raiders got a good look at what the post-Schrock era is going to look like, as Northridge defeated the Chargers, 62-28.

Northridge coach Doug Springer was pleased to see his young team get off on the right foot, especially after losing the two Schrtock girls to graduation.

“Our four seniors did a great job of providing leadership out there tonight,” Springer said. “We played exceotionally well for a first game.”

Raider senior Taylor Miller, who led the way with 14 points, said she and her teammates wanted to make a statement.

“We know we lost a couple of pretty good players, but we wanted to show that we’re still pretty good,” Miller said.

The Raiders went on a big opening run to start the contest, outscoring the Chargers 16-0 in the opening quarter. Smothering defense created several Northridge turnovers during the run.

The Chargers did not crack the scoreboard until Kelsey Peterson hit a 3-pointer at the 5:46 mark of the second stanza.

Northridge led 31-12 at intermission and 48-19 at the final stop.

West Noble coach Dale Marano said early jitters hurt his team - especially during the scoreless opening period.

“We weren’t very good tonight,” Marano said. “That’s on all of us. We got into it together, and we’ll get out of it together.”

In addition to Taylor Miller’s 17 points, the Raiders (1-0) got 14 points from Morgan Miller.

West Noble was paced by Kelsie Peterson and Lexi Shepherd, who had 12 points apiece.

The Raiders are idle until next Friday night, when they host Knox.

West Noble hosts Bethany Christian Saturday night.
