Silva’s impact was made mostly on the defensive end as she came away with 6 steals to go along with 4 points.

“I’m so proud to represent St. Anthony, it’s all about our school! It was one of the most fun and competitive game I have ever played,” said Giger on the game. “I wish Kirsten and I could play on the boys team this year,” Giger added.

The Raiders also got a big 9 points from Isaih Pelkey, son of Cougars/Friars/Women’s national basketball coach Eddie Pelkey, while teammate Colin Santiago chipped in with 8 points.
