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.

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.
