East Bladen was in town to take on the Lady Raiders of Midway in a game that was one-sided, in favor of East Bladen, as they won 66-31.


East Bladen’s size, shooting ability, and witts on the court made it an uphill climb for Midway from the start. The Lady Eagles hit 8 of their first 12 field goal attempts, 2 of which were 3 pointers, giving East Bladen a 21-9 lead after a quarter.


Midway played well in the second quarter to keep the game within reach, and trailed 31-18 at the break.


The Lady Raiders would only score 4 points in the third quarter, and add 9 in the fourth for the final margin to be 66-31.


Savannah Spell had a career high in points with 10, Amber Poole had 8, and Taylor Faircloth had 7 to lead Midway.


The Lady Raiders had only 13 team rebounds and 23 turnovers. The lack of size for Midway plagued them on the boards.


“We just didn’t play with a lot of energy. You can’t come out flat against a team like East Bladen, and that’s what we did,” said Midway’s head coach Jennifer Naylor.


The Lady Raiders have a tough task ahead Thursday as they travel to Pender. The Lady Patriots have two players who average over 15 points per game
