The Lady Raiders traveled to neighboring rivals South Shelby. The Lady Birds beat NS 67-37 on Monday, December 20.
“With injuries and sickness, we were down to six girls for the night, but the girls didn’t quit,” said North Shelby head coach Landon Daniel.
South Shelby scored 17 points in the first quarter to take an eight-point advantage.
Daniel said he thought the Lady Raiders (2-5) did a good job making some of South Shelby’s role players step up and beat North Shelby.
“Unfortunately, we made it a little too easy for them to do that at times,” Daniel continued. “We have to continue to try and get stronger and more physical with each game.
Ava Williams led NS with 17 points. Natalie Thrasher tallied nine while Andi Belt and Ceairra Kirby had four. Marissa McEwen scored two and Meg Shively had one.
Williams claimed 16 rebounds.
The Lady Birds added to their lead in the second period, 33-13.
North Shelby scored double digits in the final two quarters. The Lady Raiders held SS to eight points in the fourth.
Daniel said rebounding and not turning the ball over continue to be the Lady Raiders biggest struggles.
NS is scheduled to host Novinger on Tuesday, January 4.
