The points came in droves for Lomega as it opened the 2019-20 season last Friday night.

The Lady Raiders scored nearly at will through three quarters as they nabbed an 84-33 road win at Dover.

Four Lomega players scored in double figures while only two Lady Longhorns managed to score through the first three quarters.

That scoring came from Meadow Caldwell and Yazaret Gamez, but the duo had no chance of keeping up with Lomega.

In her debut with the team, junior Adysen Wilson led all scorers with 19 points.

She scored 14 of those in the first half.

The Lady Raiders got a huge first quarter from freshman Darcy Roberts, who poured in 13 points as Lomega got out to a 33-6 lead.

Roberts added fi ve more in the second as the difference swelled to 56-8 at halftime.

Sophomore Sophie Van-DenDriessche also had a big first half, scoring eight of her 12 points.

Lomega led 75-12 by the end of the third quarter.

Shelby Russell poured in 15 points.

The Lady Raiders buried nine 3-pointers. Wilson and Roberts made three apiece.

Dover got 16 points from Caldwell. Half of those came in the fourth quarter when Dover outscored its guests 21-9.

Gamez finished the game with eight points.

sluggish 1st quarter

For at least a quarter, Dover put up a good fight.

But Lomega proved to have more staying power last Friday and cruised to a 65-20 road win.

Kasen Harviston scored five first-quarter points as Dover was tied with its guests at 9-all by the end of the frame.

By the end of the first half, however, the Raiders boasted a 31-9 advantage.

The 22-0 second-quarter surge was sparked in large part by Noah Snowden.

The junior was scoreless in the first quarter, but poured in nine in the second.

He added 10 more points in the third quarter as Lomega went on a 25-3 run and extended its lead to 44 points.

Snowden led all scorers with 19 points.

Tate Ott helped keep Lomega afloat early with fi ve first-quarter points. He added six more in the second and ended up with 13.

Riley Lumpkin added 10 points.

Dover was led by Joriaun Caldwell’s 10 points in coach Aaron Norton’s debut.

Harviston finished with six.
