Lady Raiders advance to Sub-District championship

SIDNEY — The Sidney Lady Raiders hadn’t played a game in nine days, and it showed Monday night in the semifinals of the B-8 Sub-District at the Cabela’s Athletic Facility.  Sidney would eventually shake off the rust and defeat the Scottsbluff Bearcats 48-33 to advance to tonight’s championship game.

The Lady Raiders struggled with turnovers from the opening tip, but still jumped out to an 11-9 first quarter lead behind four points from Katelyn Sylvester and a Meaghan Ross 3-pointer. However, the Bearcats battled back to take an 18-17 lead into the half.

Halftime did not cure Sidney’s turnover woes, but the Lady Raider defense continued to stymie the Bearcats as the offense began to click in the third quarter.  The Sidney defense held the Cats to just 8 points while rebounding to take a 30-26 into the final stanza. 

Sidney began the fourth quarter on a 10-2 run to stretch the Lady Raider lead to twelve points. Meaghan Ross knocked down 8 fourth quarter points, including a pair of three-pointers, and Mattie Johnson added 5 of her 8 points in the final period to pull away and secure the win.

Natalie Radcliffe and Madi Johnstone teamed up to hold Scottsbluff’s leading scorer Aubrey Krentz (15.2 ppg) to just 4 points on the night.

The Lady Raiders (19-3) will face Alliance (15-8) tonight in the Championship game at 6:00 p.m. at the Cabela’s Athletic Facility.  The Bulldogs defeated Gering 68-47 to advance.
