Last night the Lady Redstorm A & B teams traveled LaPorte Middle School to take on the Lady Slicers. The A-team game would get off to a fast start as the Lady Redstorm dropped 20 points in the first stanza to take a 20-10 lead. The ladies would pick up their defensive intensity in the second quarter holding the Lady Slicers to 2 points in the quarter resulting in a 31-12 halftime lead. The Lady Slicers would win the third and fourth quarters 18-16, but the Lady Redstorm did a great job of being patient on offense and running their offensive plays all the way through to get the best shot. Defensively they stuck to their 2-3 zone and did a good job talking to each other throughout the 2nd half. Emma Krupp would be the game-high scorer with 22 points. Emma Winkle added 13, Rylee Mann 6, Cassidy Riddle 4 and Porsha Coffin would finish out the scoring column with 2. 

 

The B-team game would come down the wire but as the Lady Redstorm snuck away with a 16-15 victory! Izzie Wray, Kayla Johnson, Allyson Desalle, Porsha Coffin, and Hannah LaFree did a great job leading and allowing their teammates to grow and play throughout the game. In the 4th quarter, the Lady Redstorm did a good job of handling the extra pressure put on by the Lady Slicers. Kayla Johnson would score her only point on the game-winning free throw. Porsha Coffin would lead the way with 5 points. Izzie Wray added 4, Hannah LaFree 2, and Mackenzie Himes 1.
