Raiders bench savors chance to be part of title game, winning program

Dialog reporter

 

NEWARK – As the minutes dwindled down and the outcome of the girls’ state basketball championship game was no longer in doubt, they started to rise. One by one, Ursuline’s reserves tapped the scorer’s table and waited for a whistle, and their names would be added to the scoresheet signifying that, yes, they had appeared in the final.

Raiders coach John Noonan said it was very important for him to get as many girls into the game as he could, and this year that meant the entire roster. Last season, he said, he was unable to get one of his seniors into the lineup. She had been injured during the playoffs, but that should not have made a difference, he added. Read more »

A 15-0 run spanning nearly five minutes in the first quarter gave the Raiders the cushion they needed on the way to a 54-32 win in front of 1,454 fans, many of them wearing red and black.

It was the Raiders’ third-straight championship. They also defeated Caravel for the 2015 title. Read more »

Raiders play complete game, overwhelm Sanford to move on to girls hoops final

By

Dialog reporter

 

NEWARK – During the final days of the regular season, Ursuline played Sanford, had a day off, then met Caravel the next day. That scenario will be replayed on Friday after the Raiders advanced to the state championship game following a convincing 48-16 win over Sanford on March 8 at the Bob Carpenter Center.

The top-seeded Raiders took a few minutes at the beginning of the game to get their motor running, but once they did, they just took over the contest. The fourth-seeded Warriors got to within 9-6 on a layup by Samantha Pollich with 1:28 left in the first quarter, but those were the last points they would score until 2:47 remained in the second.
