A&M Loses Big, Bounces Back

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Central A&M won 18 straight games a couple years ago after starting ina hole, losing to CHBC and then getting schooled in the Pana tournament. This year is a world of difference. They beat CHBC and won their first game in the Pana tournament and stood at 3-0 heading into the second day of the Pana tournament.

Then they met Breese Central on Saturday morning. Breese blew by the Raiders, 55-35.

Breese was just head and shoulders above the Raiders. They took A&M completely out of their game.  

Breese limited every major scorer the Raiders had. Only Sarah Bailey scored seven points, while Rachel Townsend led the Raiders with 10 points. Most of the other scores came from the Raider bench once the game was out of hand.

Breese came out of the gate with a 16-4 run. They followed that in the 2nd with a 15-4 run. Down by 23 points heading into the 2nd half. The Raiders still couldn't make up any ground. Breese led by 27 going into the 4th. They called off the dogs and A&M finally had room to score, taking the 4th, 19-12, and cutting the final margin of victory to 20.

Even though the Raiders were blown out by Breese in the morning, they bounced back like a super ball. They pulled it back together for their second game on Saturday, against Paris. The Raiders came out like gangbusters  and won by 23, 66-43.

The usual Raider suspects were back on track. Taylor Jordan cashed in 20 points, including a trey hat trick. Allie Heaton put in 15 points, getting to the line and making 7-of-8. Bailey was in double figures, scoring five times from the floor. Genny Rose Stringer was connecting again from the arc, hitting a pair and finishing with eight points. Freshman Ryan Dooley, who was been in the mix in the first three games, had three buckets.

A&M wasted no time, starting the game with a 20-10 run. They scored 15 points in the 2nd period, but Paris got their feet under them and kept pace. A&M still led by 11 at the break, 35-24.

A&M ratcheted things up again in the 3rd, taking Paris on a 16-10 run to goup by 17 points heading into the final frame, 51-34. Paris folded down the stretch as the Raiders kept the pedal down and pulled further away with a 15-9 run for the 23-point victory and their fourth win in five games.

One key to the game, once again, was the Raider 3-point shooting, launching eight missiles from artillery range, while Paris had none. Jordan had three, Stringer two, Heaton two, and Kayley Hennings one.
