Raiders continue win streak


The Raiders are on a three-game win streak after sweeping their opponents last week.

The wins put the Raiders firmly in second place in the Central Washington 2B North with a one-game lead over the Liberty Bell Mountain Lions. LR canceled a game at Pateros Saturday due to weather conditions.

On their home court Jan. 12, the Raiders held off the Bulldogs to win for the first time in four years over Okanogan. The Bulldogs could not find a rhythm and the Raiders exploited this for points. In the second half, the Bulldogs did put together a comeback, but it was too little too late. Lake Roosevelt won, 70-59.

Two days later at Liberty Bell the Raiders and Mountain Lions played to see who would have second place in the North. LR rode the momentum of the previous two wins and Liberty Bell struggled to answer, leading to another Raider win, 69-52.

Liberty Bell played without Micah Klemmeck, one of the Mountain Lions’ top two scorers, who was out with the flu.

This week the Raiders hope to hold on to that second place spot as they again play a three-game week.

Last night at Gailord Nelson Gym, the Raiders were scheduled to host the Oroville Hornets, a team they had defeated Dec. 8, 68-65.

The Raiders will host the Mountain Lions Jan. 21 in the grudge match starting at 7:30 p.m. in Gailord Nelson. LR needs to win this to continue to hold onto second place.

On Saturday, the Raiders will take on the Mustangs of Bridgeport in Bridgeport starting at 7:30 p.m. LR defeated Bridgeport at home Dec. 15, 62-21.
