LADY RAIDERS IMPROVE TO 8-0

The Lady Raiders remain undefeated at 8-0 racing to a 55-27 run away victory over the Mount Carmel Phoenix Tuesday night in IIAAG Middle School Girls Basketball action at the St. Anthony Gym in Tamuning.

In eight games this season, the Raiders have jumped all over their competition with a clamp-down defense that opens the door to big offensive runs.

Every member of the starting five earned Game Balls in their last home game celebration.

The Lady Raiders scored in the first seconds of the competition as center Monica Giger won the tip and delivered it perfectly to point guard Kirsten Silva who whip-passed the ball to a streaking guard Ivory Howat for a layup setting up the first two points of the game.

St. Anthony jumped out to a 10-0 lead early in the first quarter with Kirsten Silva driving her team up court and creating baskets for Howat, Natasha Gandaoli & Monica Giger.

Giger and Gandaoli finished with double-doubles.

In control with a 30-5 halftime lead and 38-9 after three, Coach Rudy Gaza started to exit out his starting five players one-by-one to big cheers from the home crowd.

The second string got some pivotal playing time finishing up the game 55-27.

Center Giger finished 18 points, 17 rebounds, five blocked shots and three steals.

Gandaoli played strong minutes with 13 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and a blocked shot.
