LAWTON - The talented Lawton-Bronson girls turned back Ridge View 59-40 in Western Valley Conference basketball action here last week.
The host Eagles jumped out to a 15-5 lead in the first quarter, and led 35-16 at halftime on the way to the early-season win.
Egypt Clayton led the Raptors with 11 points, while Roxanne Grundmeier, Nicole Snyder, and Brooke Wiese tallied six points apiece.
The cold-shooting Ridge View club managed just 15-55 field goals for 27 percent, and converted 11-24 free throws.
Grundmeier and Clayton led the Raptors on the boards with four rebounds apiece, as the taller Lawton-Bronson team dominmated the boards. Snyder and Emily Schiernebeck paced Ridge View in steals with three each.
"Lawton-Bronson is a good team," noted Ridge View coach Ken Slater. "We got off to another slow start and were down 14-0 before we knew what hit us. Lawton-Bronson did a great job of changing defenses and keeping us off-balance. We were never able to get into any type of rhythm offensively. Their length really caused problems for us."
The Ridge View teams host Sioux Central at Schaller Friday night and travel to Cherokee Saturday night for a non-conference tussle.
