Mallard Creek wears down Lady Ravens 62-32

The Rocky River Lady Ravens basketball team with only 7 players strong played evenly with the powerful Lady Mavericks for the first half to a 21-21 battle. However, the Mavericks with a solid starting five, and a good bench 12 deep, simply wore down the Ravens in the final period outscoring the home team 19-1 with complete domination.

Mallard Creek double teamed the Lady Ravens standout Delayzha Dixon, and put their best defensive player to spy on her throughout the basketball game. Especially, in the second half which truly shut down the Ravens offense as they were outscored 41-11.

The Mavericks came out in the third period and picked up the tempo with their two quick guards, and their three solid taller forwards to control both boards not giving the Ravens a second shot opportunity. They also forced turnovers for easy baskets during transition, and created fast breaks applying pressure on the Ravens ball handlers. The Lady Mavericks won the period 22-10 and never looked back.

The Ravens started the season with 9 players, two senior starters from the previous season, however, these players are serving a suspension from our understanding and may not return to the team this year. This loss will certainly have a impact on the team, and the core seven will have to respond to compete in a highly competitive Southwestern Conference.

Queen’s Grant battles Greater Cabarrus to 57-45 loss

The Lady Stallions played a very competitive away game against GCSHS recently which showed their potential as a young team loaded with freshman and sophomores.

The contest was close for the first three periods. Queen’s Grant held a 13-12 one point lead in the first period, largely on the play of two freshman Lilly Todd and Lilly Gorman. However, they were outscored by their opponent 14-9 in the second period on accurate  shooting. Junior Remmi Carlton kept the visitors close with some solid rebounding and a key block during the period.

The third period was played dead even with both teams netting 12 points each. Again, the trio of Todd, Gorman, Carlton kept the game close and the team in striking distance of their first win of the season. However, in the final period, Greater Cabarrus outscored the Lady Stallions from Queen’s Grant 19-11 to take home the victory.

The Stallions are now 0-5 on the season after their loss to Covenant Day and will take on Central Academy of Technology and the Arts in a non-conference game.
