GARRISON, ROLFS, RICHARDSON LEAD REDSKINS!

By William

LITTLE RIVER – Thanks to the hot hand of Jayden Garrison, the Little River rolled from the opening tip to a 17-point, 57-40 home victory over Goessel.

The Redskins held a slight five-point, 17-12 advantage at the end of the first quarter before putting 20 more points on the scoreboard in the second quarter while holding Goessel to just eight, giving the Redskins a comfortable and commanding 17-point, 37-20 halftime lead.

While Goessel played Little River even up in the final two quarters with each team hitting for another 20 points, they were unable to shake the large Redskin lead giving them the win.

Jayden Garrison had a huge game for the Redskins as he poured 29 points, helped much by connecting on five three pointers. Trey Rolfs and Keaton Richardson also hit for double digits with 12 and 10 points respectively.

Rolfs led the team in assists with four and steals with five while pulling down four rebounds, just one rebound behind team leader Garrison with five.

As a team, the Redskins hit a whopping 56% of their shots from the field when on offense while forcing Goessel to turn the ball over 18 times when playing defense.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE LITTLE RIVER REDSKINS? Little River is now a sparkling 11-3 for the season as they have their work cut out for them with four games scheduled in the next seven days. On Monday, the Redskins hit the road for a makeup game with Elyria Christian, then return home on Tuesday to tangle with Wakefield, have a makeup home game on Thursday with Centre before closing out the week with a road trip to Solomon.
