Lady Roadrunners Defeat Penn Valley on Sophomore Night
The Lady Roadrunners defeated the Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley Lady Scouts from Kansas City 88-59 on sophomore night Feb. 27 at the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center.
SFCC (17-9) jumped out to a 35-21 lead courtesy of a layup from freshman guard Ryneka Church with less than eight minutes remaining in the first half.
“The transition game has been very effective for us,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “It also helped to get some outside shots to fall early in the game. Our defense was strong overall, so I was pleased.”
The Lady Scouts trimmed SFCC’s advantage to 37-27, but SFCC led 53-36 by halftime. Sophomore guard Ariel Easton opened the scoring for SFCC in the second half with a driving shot in the lane. The basket was part of a 7-0 run to begin the half and stretch SFCC’s lead to 60-36. SFCC cruised from there to claim the 88-59 victory.
Easton led four Lady Roadrunners in double-figure scoring with 22 points. Church contributed 17 points, freshman guard Voneisha Harris added 14 points and sophomore forward/center Cheyenne Williams pitched in with 10 points. Harris pulled down a team-high six rebounds and Church dished out a team-high five assists. Sophomore forward Jallisa Lewis registered a team-high four steals.
