Raymond’s Clutch Steal Keeps Frewsburg In Division Lead

RANDOLPH – Shawna Raymond came up with the big steal and ensuing basket that kept Frewsburg (6-0, 11-1) on top of the Division 2 girls basketball standings on Monday night.

Raymond stole the ball and made the winning layup as time expired as the Bears held off Randolph (5-1, 8-3, 53-51.

Annie Berg of Frewsburg made a free throw to tie it at 51-51 with 13 seconds left and Randolph was working for the final shot when Raymond came up with the clutch steal and followed that up with the winning deuce.

”This was a great game and it was very intense,” said Randolph coach Shawn Huntington. ”It was the first time we have lost at home in two years.”

Randolph, behind McKenna Maycock’s 12 points, took a 31-24 lead at halftime. Raymond kept the Bears in it with 14 points, including 11 points in the first quarter.

The second half favored the Bears by a 29-20 margin with a 17-9 spread in the final quarter. A big 3-pointer was made by Frewsburg’s Camryn Gardner down the stretch.

Raymond finished with 22 points, Reyanne Strong added 15 points and Berg had 11 rebounds for the Bears.

Maycock wound up with 14 more points in the second half for a game-high 26 points in the loss. She also brought down 10 rebounds while Mandy Finch had five steals and five assists to go along with 11 points.

Foul shooting was also a key as the Bears made 11 of 15 while the Lady Cardinals were 10 of 19.

”We haven’t been hitting our foul shots like we have in the past,” said Huntington.
