Raiders, Jeeps to meet Saturday

From Herald Staff Reports

Myah Montgomery

CORYDON — A local team is guaranteed to get back in the win column on Saturday.

Both Southridge and Northeast Dubois fell Friday in the first round of the Corydon Central Tournament. The Raiders (2-2) dropped a 44-37 loss to Lanesville, while the Jeeps (0-3) lost to Crawford County, 48-17.

Southridge kept it competitive. The Raiders trailed, 22-17, at the half, and 31-29 after three. However, the Eagles went on a 13-8 run in the fourth quarter to create separation down the stretch.

The Raiders were once again led by sophomore Myah Montgomery, who had 16 points. Her total was a game-high for the second night in a row. Montgomery paced everybody with 22 when Southridge fell to Jasper, 60-30, on Thursday. Junior Kennedy Nalley added 14 points.

Northeast Dubois, meanwhile, was not able to get its offense going. The Jeeps mainly relied on the free throw line, in which they were 8-for-15 on the night. Sophomore Hadley Fuhrman had a team-high four points. Northeast Dubois also scored just one point in the second quarter off of a free throw from senior Haley Reckelhoff.

This means the Raiders and Jeeps will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday morning. Southridge won last season's meeting, 45-29.
