Monday was girls’ night for high school basketball, but most all of the MAAA Conference teams that played, were involved in landslide outcomes, with the exception of Valle.
North County 62, Arcadia Valley 16 — The North County Lady Raiders held the Arcadia Valley Lady Tigers to no more than five points in a quarter in taking a 62-16 win over the Lady Raiders.
The Lady Raiders held a ‘Shoot For The Cure’ night for Relay For Life with cancer survivors being honored at their half-time.
The game, however, was very one-sided with Carley Barton leading the Lady Tigers with five points and seven rebounds.
Arcadia Valley (1-3) will play their first conference game on Monday at West County. North County (3-1) will play next on Friday when they will host St. Clair.
Central 41, Hancock 6 — The Central Rebels held their visitors scoreless until the third quarter of play, even though they pulled off their press early in the second quarter. Hancock scored two points in the third quarter and four in the last quarter, for Central to win 41-6.
Amanda Williams outscored Hancock by herself with nine points, Taylor Friend scored seven points and Alison Fischbeck and Stacey Williams both scored six. Central did not make one three-pointer.
