Tigers tank Cutthroats

Girls Northside Conference hoops

Senior Jackie Goddard scored a game-high 16 points against the Tigers

The Richfield Tigers posted their third consecutive Northside Conference victory Tuesday, defeating The Community School 56-26 at the Fish Tank.

The Tigers never trailed, ringing up a 13-4 advantage in the first quarter and a 25-10 lead at halftime.

Richfield rained three-pointers on the Cutthroats, sinking nine treys.

"They shot the eyes out of the ball," Cutthroat coach Ryan Waterfield said. "They are the best Richfield team I have ever seen,"

Four Tigers posted double figures, but the game's high scorer was Sun Valley's Jackie Goddard with a 16-point effort. Goddard also grabbed 10 rebounds.

"She could have had a 30-point game, but we did not utilize her early enough," Waterfield remarked.

Gussi Ochi added eight points and four steals. Jessie Curran sunk two points.

The team had to play much of the game without Blake Ellis, who picked up some early fouls.

'That hurt us," Waterfield said.

The Cutthroats (1-2, 0-2 league) face another tough opponent tonight, Dec. 10, as the Shoshone Indians (7-0, 2-0 league) come to town. The girls' varsity contest starts at 6 p.m.
