Louisville-North Clay 44, Red Hill 30
Lady Salukis struggle to find the range in opener
BRIDGEPORT - Visiting Louisville-North Clay used a 16-0 run in the second period to pull away from Red Hill High School's girls basketball team in the opening game of the season Monday evening, 44-30.

The Lady Cardinals broke away from a 7-7 tie to build a 23-7 lead late in the second quarter and were not seriously threatened the rest of the way.

Louisville-North Clay led by scores of 7-3, 23-11 and 32-21 at the quarter stops.

"We made it close a couple of times in the second half," Red Hill coach Traci Gray said. "But every time we made a run we'd either take a stupid shot, throw it out of bounds or foul. We just didn't get it done."

The Lady Salukis made just 13 of 52 shots, for 25 percent. The also made just 11 trips to the foul stripe, making four, while the visitors shot 16 of 29 from the stripe.

"We weren't playing well, defensively," said Gray. "We got out-hustled and we got pushed around."

Jamesha Western, a 6-0 sophomore, made three of 12 shots on the way to scoring a team-high nine points for Red Hill. Western also grabbed 13 rebounds for Red Hill, which was outrebounded, 35-29. Cheyanne Moan added eight points and Macee Weiss seven for Red Hill.

After Moan scored the game's first basket to give Red Hill it's only lead, the Lady Cardinals responded with seven straight points. Stanfield's driving hoop put the visitors on top, 3-2, and they held a 7-3 lead at the first stop.

Western hit two foul shots to open the second quarter, then scored with an offensive rebound at the 6:25 mark to tie the game at 7-7.

The Lady Cardinals took over at that point, with the 16-0 run. Red Hill didn't score again until just 1:10 remained in the first half, when Weiss's basket drew her team to within 23-9.

The Lady Salukis got to within no closer than nine points in the final period.

Stanfield scored a game-high 13 points for the Lady Cardinals, including seven in the final period. Teehanna Wyatt added 10 points.

Louisville-North Clay won the junior varsity game, 27-23. Olivia Powden scored 10 points to lead Red Hill.

The Lady Salukis return to competition Thursday with a non-conference game at Lawrenceville.
