Rainy River Rides 17 Point 2nd Half Run to Win Over Lady Spartans

By Craig Olson - Fergus Falls, MN

Rainy River took a 37-32 halftime lead on Friday night at M State in Fergus Falls and opened the second half with a 17 point run that the Spartans were unable to overcome as the Voyageurs topped the Spartans 70-57.

“They came out in the second half with a box and one on Maria Johnson and we didn't handle that well,” said Head Coach Brenda Johnson of M State. “The Voyageurs played harder and worked harder than us tonight.” 

The Spartans out rebounded the Voyageurs 60 to 39. Cheyanne O'Neal led the Spartans with 14 boards 12 of them were defensive, Sam Zastrow had 11. The Voyageurs had 3 players in double figures, Ebony Joseph 23, Roniesha Jordan 12, and Alisha Binker 10. The leading scorer for the Spartans was Zastrow with 19 points and 2 assists, Johnson had 15, and Tanis Lura added 11 points, 3 assists.

“It was nice to have 3 players in double figures,” concluded Johnson.The Spartans shot just 30.6% (19/62) and made only 3-of-12 3’s (25%). Rainy River was 30-for-77 (39%) from the field, making 6 of 19 3’s.

The Spartans are back on the floor Saturday at home against Hibbing at 1:00pm.
