The Lady Ravens basketball team soared past the Porter Ridge Lady Pirates on Friday night on their home court with a convincing victory.

This game was expected to be a blowout as the Ravens are a solid team with some good talent.  They certainly are in the top tier of the Southwest 4-A Conference behind Butler and Hickory Ridge the two top teams.  Rocky River is 9-2 overall, and 3-2 in their conference with losses to only the top two teams.

The Ravens outscored the Pirates 44-16 in the first half led by Delayzha Dixon and Andresia Alexander who are both athletic, and are difficult for the Pirates to contain.  The Ravens scored 21 and 23 points in each period to take a commanding lead at the intermission.

In the third period, Rocky River broke the game wide open when they scored 33 points to the Pirates 7, extending their lead, and basically putting this game totally out of reach for any kind of comeback by the Pirates.

With the bench emptied in the fourth period, the Ravens still won the period on the scoreboard with a 16-4 run with a running game clock.  This contest was a mismatch from the start, the Pirates were just not up to the same level of competition.

Delayzha Dixon scored 23 points, had multiple rebounds and steals, the pesky Alexander contributed a nifty 21 points, with several assists and steals, while Mashya Scott added a solid 11 points for the home team.  Serraia Goodman led the Lady Pirates with 14 points and had a solid game.

Action … (Paul Imirie)

The Lady Ravens will take on Independence on the road next Friday night.  This should be a good match-up since the Lady Patriots are 7-8 overall, and 3-2 in the Southwest 4-A Conference.
