BOUGHFMAN, ECK, RENKEN LEAD LADY REDSKINS

By William

FAIRFIELD – The Little River girls basketball team held off a fourth quarter comeback attempt by Stafford to beat them 54-45 on Tuesday at the Fairfield Lady Falcon Invitational.

One of the big differences in the game was on the boards where the Lady Redskins outrebounded Stafford 33-23 with Aubrey Olander pulled down 15 and Lily Boughfman grabbed eight.

Boughfman had a big overall game as she led Little River with 24 points while also making two blocked shots, two steals and still found time to dish out three assists.

Alaina Eck and MeKenzie Renken joined Boughfman in double digits with 11 and 10 points each, with Eck leading the offense with six assists.

“We had a nice lead at the end of three quarters, but then gave up 17 points in the fourth but were able to hang on for the final nine-point win,” noted Lady Redskin Head Coach Brent Clark in his post-game reflections. “We are starting to get our offense moving in the right direction. Another night where several players were contributing to the victory.”

Now 7-3 for the season, the Lady Redskins were scheduled to play host Fairfield on Thursday.
