Lady Rams use balanced approach to stymie Cougars

January 11, 2012

Riverside's Hayley Pace applies defensive pressure to Chewelah's Mikaela Hopkins during first half action on Tuesday.

The Riverside girls basketball team, using a balance attack, defeated the Chewelah Cougars 47-34 for their first Northeast A League win in four tries.
The Lady Rams were finally able to put some distance between themselves and the Cougars with a 9-3 run to end the second quarter. The offensive spurt was highlighted by a three-point shot by Brielle Supanchick at the halftime buzzer.
First-year Riverside coach Buddy Wood was pleased with the way his team ran the offense, especially the way they moved the ball on the perimeter looking for the open shot.
Riverside opened the second half with an 8-1 run. A basket by Marisa Pace increased the Lady Ram lead to 38-23 with 1:20 to go in the third quarter.
Pace added five more points in the fourth quarter as the Lady Rams led by as many as 18 points in the final 8 minutes of the game.
Ryann Richmond, who did most of her offensive damage in the first half, led the Cougars with 14 points.
Courtney Davis led the Lady Rams with 17 points.
