Raiders spurt past Eagles

MIDDLETOWN — The Shenandoah Lady Raiders used a 14-3 scoring advantage in the third quarter to break open a close game and post a 64-44 win over the visiting Frankton Lady Eagles here Friday night.

The first half was a nip-tuck affair with 10 lead changes and five ties as the two sides battled to gain control of the game.

Shenandoah leaned heavily on leading scorer Rachel Krathwohl and the junior post player delivered, scoring 15 of her team’s 27 points. Katie Key scored 11 in the half for Frankton and Ashtyn Rastetter chipped in eight as the foul-plagued Lady Eagles refused to go away.

The third quarter started sloppily as Frankton was 0-5 from the field and Shenandoah was 0-2. Payton Dellinger hit a free throw with 5:46 left to cut the lead the lead to one and Key followed with a lay up to give Frankton its final lead of the night.

Breanna DeYoung, who averaged 2.8 points coming into the contest, scored two of her 14 points to take the lead back for Shenandoah and the Lady Raiders never looked back.

Frankton finally broke the ice on a Kaylee Irwin bucket with 5 seconds left in the quarter and Shenandoah leading 41-30. The Lady Eagles were 2-12 from the field in the third and had six turnovers, while Shenandoah went 6-13 and had just three turnovers.

“I think the big difference was we started running our sets a little bit better” said Shenandoah coach Chelsea Kilian of the third quarter turnaround. “We got better looks and were finding teammates that were open”.

Key hit a 3-pointer to start the fourth for Frankton, but Shenandoah pulled away with a balanced effort.

The Lady Raiders enjoyed their largest lead of the night at 64-39 on a basket by Morgan Tapscott. Krathwohl led the way for Shenandoah with 23 points, DeYoung came off of the bench to finish with 14.
