Raiderettes play Eagleville in region finals game on Wednesday

EAGLEVILLE — The Moore County Raiderettes season moves forward on Wednesday with a regional final game against tournament host Eagleville High School at 7 p.m. The Lady Eagles took out top seed Huntland in a 63-44 blow out win on Monday night – breaking the Lady Hornet’s perfect record against District 8-A opponents.

Against Fayetteville City on Monday, fierce defensive play and sold offensive play … especially by Raiderette post Chloe Brazier …  helped Moore County easily move past the Tigers for a 47-32 semifinal win.

Moore County pulled ahead early with a 18-8 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. Smart, disciplined defensive play helped the Raiderettes keep Fayetteville City off the scoreboard entirely in the second period. They went into the locker room with a 24-8 lead. In the third period, a pair of three point shots from Olivia Richards helped Moore County add to their lead while the Raiderette D stayed on point … only allowing the Tigers five buckets.

Against Eagleville, not only will the Raiderettes need to contend with a large, tournament host crowd but they’ll also need a plan against a dogged Eagleville defense that like to keep their opponents shooting from the perimeter. Against Huntland, the Lady Eagles also managed to take advantage of second-chance opportunities under the basket – managing an impressive plus-26 rebounding margin. The Raiderettes will also need to keep a close eye on senior point guard Haylee Ferguson who managed 17 first half points against the Lady Hornets.
