In the Championship Game of the Junior Varsity Region Tournament the Lady Raiders fell to Northview Titans 34-26. Their record on the season is now 7-2 and 4-1 in Region play with both losses coming to the Titans.
The first quarter saw Northview drive the lane repeatedly only to be stopped by Destin Carr. Unfortunately, Destiny picked up 3 quick fouls due to Raider guard play not being able to stop #10 from driving the lane. Coach Crockett dialed up a 3-2 zone to start the second quarter and the Raiders responded with a 20-13 lead. Abby Clark jumped a reversal and went to the house for 2 and then assisted with two more in a row to Kourtney Lacy and Naz Martinez.
Things were looking good for the Raiders but only got a couple shots off in the 3rd quarter with well over 15 turnovers from the wings trying to feed Pat and Destiny inside. No fakes, no bounce passes, just lobs inside that were deflected time and time again. Raiders were still up by 2 at 22-20 at the end of 3 but more of the same ensued in Q4. Trying to press the action Raider coaches went to a man to man defense with a few minutes left only to see fouls and free throw due them in.
Kourtney Lacy 10 points
Naz Martinez 9 points
Mary Grace Durham 4 points
Abby Clark 2 points
