To be a Gladiator standing in that Roman coliseum not sure of the brutality that was about to be throw at you must have been frightening. The Fowlerville Gladiators may have felt just that Thursday night as the JV Lady Raider Basketball team unleashed their fury on them from the jump ball. The Raiders man to man defense attacked immediately! The 1st Quarter ended 13-0 Raiders and by halftime the Gladiators only had scored 2 points.
Portland experienced it’s best balanced scoring night of the year, with EVERY Lady Raider in the scoring book. Sophie Novara and Grace Sines lead the way with 8 points each and Alayna Goodman chipped in with 6 points. The raiders only had 6 turnovers by halftime, something they have been trying to cut down.
With the game under control the lady Raiders worked on a couple new things they hope to utilize this next week when they put their 4 game winning streak on the line going into the toughest stretch of the year vs. Dewitt, LCHS, and PW.
