The Raiders came strong out of the gate and left the Marroons reeling down, 16-9. A&M stayed on the attack scoring almost 20 points and stretching their lead to 11 points at the break, 35-24.

Clinton stopped the bleeding in the 3rd, but still trailed by a dozen when the 4th period started, 47-35. Clinton pulled out all the stops in a furious 4th, scoring 26 points. However, the Raiders wouldn’t be shed easily. They scored 20 points and clinched the 6-point win.

Ryan Dooley scored a game-high 25 points, scoring seven times from the floor (54%), including two treys, and got to the line for 14 free throws making 11 (78.5%). She not only scored seven times she dished six assists, giving her a share of 33 of the 67 points A&M scored from the floor, and 44of the 67 points scored altogether.

Two more Raiders were in double figures. Kaley Hennings scored 12 points and Taylor Jordan 11, including 8-of-10 at the line, with five assists of her own.

Clinton had two 20-point performers. Bieber had 24 and Toohill 22. They scored all but 15 of Clinton’s points, they just couldn’t match the Raiders team effort.
