On Tuesday night the A-Team Lady Redstorm battled against conference foe Edgewood. The Lady Redstorm played their best team defense of the season and walked away victorious with a 24-13 win. The Lady Redstorm got off to a good start as they hit some shots early and their press defense was able to cause some turnovers resulting in a 10-2 lead after the first quarter. Unfortunately, their hot shooting cooled off during the second quarter as they would only score 3 points and Edgewood would score 8, making it a 13-10 contest at halftime. The second half is when the Lady Redstorm really locked in defensively as they held Edgewood to 3 total points in the half. Offensively they would be held to 11 but their defensive dominance would result in a 24-13 Redstorm victory. Scoring would go as follows: Emma Krupp 13, Cassidy Riddle 5, Emma Winkle 4, and Sophie Wray 2. The ladies move to 13-1 on the season. They will be back in action on Wednesday, March 4th as they travel to Lakeview. Tip-off will be approximately 6:00pm.
