NEWARK – For much of the first half of the DIAA girls’ basketball quarterfinal matchup March 4 between Hodgson and St. Thomas More, things weren’t going the fifth-seeded Ravens’ way. Two starters flirted with foul trouble. The normally reliable three-point shooting had abandoned them. And Hodgson’s high-scoring Kayla Braxton-Young was in a rhythm from the outside.

But the players from the little school in Magnolia stayed close to the fourth-seeded Silver Eagles, trailing by just four at halftime. The Ravens held Hodgson to just four free throws in the third quarter, turning that deficit into a four-point lead entering the fourth quarter, and they were able to hang on for a 52-47 win at the Bob Carpenter Center.

GLASGOW – St. Thomas More made a valiant comeback effort on Dec. 9 at Hodgson, but in the end, the Ravens missed on too many opportunities, and Hodgson came through when needed to take a 45-36 nonconference girls basketball victory.

The young Ravens played with just eight girls, only one of whom was not a freshman or sophomore. St. Thomas More gave the Silver Eagles too many second and third chances on offense, and numerous Ravens shots would not fall as they fell to 1-1 on the season. Sophomore Kayla Braxton-Young, after being held scoreless in the first quarter, led the Silver Eagles the rest of the way, putting up a game-high 18 points. Read more »

NEWARK – The most successful seasons for both the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams at St. Thomas More came to an end over the weekend at the Bob Carpenter Center. The Ravens’ boys, seeded 14th, lost on March 6 to St. Georges Tech, 45-39, while the fifth-seeded girls fell to Concord, 60-47, the day before.

The boys, fresh off an upset of the third seed, Dover, fell behind early, 5-0, but went on a 14-4 run and led at the end of the first period, 14-9. That run included three-pointers by Alvin West and Greg Bloodsworth. Another triple by Bloodsworth and two putbacks by big man Aaron Scott fueled a 12-4 start to the second quarter, but the Hawks scored the final four points of the half and trailed, 26-17, at intermission.
