The Rocky River Lady Ravens go on the road and defeat the Porter Ridge Lady Pirates in  dominating fashion with a 58-29 victory.  In fact, the game was virtually over after the first half of play as the Pirates were having a difficult time getting the ball to fall into the basket.

After the first period the Lady Ravens had a 17-3 edge and by the end of the second period they expanded their lead to 32-5 which was just to much of a deficit for the Pirates to overcome in the second half of play.

Mashya Scott scored 15 points for the Lady Ravens in the first half leading the Lady Patriots to their outstanding performance in the first two periods of competition.  Eva Powell was dominating under the boards all game.  Andresia Alexander was all over the court making multiple steals and dealing out assists like candy bars to her teammates which included Scott, Powell and Zichia Harris.

In the third period the Lady Pirates came out of the locker room determined to make a game of it, however, even though they won the period outscoring the Lady Ravens 17-15, their deficit accumulated in the first half was much to deep a whole to climb out of on this Friday night.

In the fourth period the Lady Ravens won the period 11-7 to put the game away for good in a very dominating performance improving their season record to 3-10 overall, and 2-3 in their conference.

This was expected to be a very competitive game, however, due to the lack of poor shooting in the first half by the Lady Pirates, the very opportunistic Lady Ravens took full advantage of their good fortune.
