Challengers use depth to romp past Riddle

Challengers use depth to romp past Riddle

Girls prep basketball —

CENTRAL POINT-- Cascade Christian demonstrated the importance of depth en route to a 72-29 non-conference girls basketball victory against Riddle Saturday at Scenic Middle School. —

The Challengers' bench equalled Riddle's team scoring output, with sophomore Heidi Flood leading the way with 15 points. —

Flood came in to score 13 points in the second quarter when the Challengers (10-4) outscored the Irish 24-4 to take a commanding 25-point lead at the break. —

We went after them hard with our fullcourt defense and basically ran the legs off their first five, Cascade Christian coach Loren King said. Riddle just got tired. —

Christine McCandless added 14 points for the Challengers, while senior point guard Katie Longan added nine points and made an important contribution as the floor leader. —

Katie is really coming into her own, said King. Right now she's the second-best point guard I've ever coached in girls basketball spanning 33 years. I've had other kids score more but she sees the floor unbelievably well. —
