Lady Riders Tame The Cougars
The Lady Rider basketball team won their fourth consecutive game Wednesday night over the visiting South Mountain Community College Cougars, 66-54. Yavapai improves to 5-5 overall and 4-1 in the ACCAC. South Mountain falls to 2-3 overall and 2-3 in conference action.
South Mountain took a 24-23 lead into halftime after some sloppy Yavapai play. However, YC came out of halftime with a 13-6 run and scored 43 points in the second half. Kira DeMorales led the team with 18 points. Julianne Forte` added 15 and Dee Adsitt finished with 14.
YC travels to Chandler/Gilbert Community College on Friday for a 5:30 tip-off. Following that game, Yavapai will take a two week break before playing in the Arizona Western College tournament on January 4th and 5th.
