Lomega dialed up a long distance homecoming win against Union City. The Lady Raiders buried 15 3-pointers as part of an 84–47 victory last Friday night. The sharpshooting helped improve Lomega to 4-2 entering the Thanksgiving break. Prior to the game, Hensley Eaton was crowned homecoming queen. She responded with a pair of fi rst-quarter treys to help get Lomega out to a 2-14 lead. That lead swelled to 48-16 by halftime. Adysen Wilson was the biggest part of the 3-point barrage. The junior had three of them in the first quarter and five by halftime. She led all scorers with 20 points. Hallie Barton added four more and scored 14 points while Darcy Roberts made a pair of treys as part of her 14 points. Eaton and Reagan Ramer scored 11 points apiece.

Raiders pull away in 4th

Lomega seemingly cruised to a homecoming victory last Friday night. It wasn’t quite that easy however. The Raiders snapped a two-game skid by downing Union City after Tate Ott was crowned the homecoming king. However, it wasn’t until a dominant fourth quarter that the Raiders were able to pull away. The teams were tied at 23-all at halftime before Lomega built a 10-point cushion in the third. The Raiders then blew past the Tigers 27-4 in the fourth quarter. Noah Snowden was largely responsible for the third-quarter surge as he posted 10 of the team’s 17 points. He finished the night with a game-high 24.

Blake Snowden and Riley Lumpkin did a lot of their damage in the fourth.

The duo combined for five 3-pointers - three by Snowden - and 18 points in the quarter.

Lumpkin ended his night with 20 points while Blake Snowden scored 17. He made four 3-pointers overall.

Nando Pizano scored 12 points to pace Union City. He managed just three after halftime.

Lomega was 4-2 after the win.
