The Eaton Rapids Lady Greyhounds fell tonight to the Raiders of Portland bye a score of 37-25. Defense was the name of the game for both teams tonight, and ended up being the difference in a close game. Jumping out to a 12-3 lead, the Greyhounds fought back in the 2nd quarter, using a tough half-court defense that held the Raiders scoreless in the period. After halftime, however, the Raiders’ pressure defense snagged a few key steals leading to layups on the other end that became the difference in the score. Ari Sysum led the Greyhounds with 16 points tonight. Also adding points were Isabell Ausel with 6, Shelby Warner with 2, and Kyra Acker added 1. The Greyhounds look to reestablish their offense next week with games at Fowlerville and Ionia.

JV score: Portland 49, Eaton Rapids 25
