Roughriders Advance to Region 16 Championship

Roughriders Advance to Region 16 Championship

Crowder and Three Rivers were playing for the second time in less than a week, this time in the Region 16 semifinals.  Three Rivers got on the board first and a back and forth first quarter saw the Raiders with a 13-12 lead.  The second quarter was much like the first and the two teams were deadlocked at 32 all heading into halftime.  The Roughriders took a small lead to start the second half but the Raiders made a run of their own and held a 50-49 lead heading into the final quarter.  Crowder had a big fourth quarter and was able to hold off Three Rivers down the stretch and pull out the 75-64 win and advance to the Region 16 Championship,  The Roughriders were led by Zahria White's 21 points and 12 rebounds.  Elle Williams and Morgan Crawford added 15 and 14 points respectively.  Coley Ices led with 3 assists and Crawford had 5 steals.  Crowder will take on #4 Moberly (31-0) in the Region 16 Championship on Saturday at Lincoln University in Jefferson City at 1:00 PM.
