ECK, OLANDER, BOUGHFMAN LEAD LITTLE RIVER

CANTON – Defense was the key to a 43-point, 68-25, victory by the Little River girls on the road at Canton/Galva on Friday.

While the Lady Redskins only turned the ball over eight times, their lock down defense forced the Lady Eagles into 35 turnovers, including 26 of which came on Little River steals, led by seven from the quick hands of Alaina Eck.

Eck not only had the quick hands while on defense, she also led Little River on the offensive end as she put 16 points in the scorebook while Aubrey Olander and Lily Boughfman joined her in double digits with 15 and 13 points each. Mea Debaere just missed double figures with nine.

It was true team effort as nine Lady Redskins put points in the scorebook, six recorded at least three steals, eight grabbed at least one rebound or more and seven put at least one assist by their name on the stat sheet.

Now 11-3 for the season, the Lady Redskins will play host to Centre on Tuesday before hitting road to tangle with Elyria Christian on Friday.
