Ravens blast Cowgirls to sweep Special District 1 series

Crook County is never in the contest as they fall 69-29 in season finale


Tuesday night the Ridgeview Ravens overpowered the Crook County Cowgirls 69-29 to sweep the three-game series between the two teams.

“They just dominated us from the beginning to the end,” said Crook County Head Coach Mark Malott. “They were playing like they still had something to play for and we were playing like we didn’t have anything to play for.”

The Ravens had already clinched the district championship and the league’s lone play-in game when they defeated the Cowgirls, 63-36, on Monday, Feb. 17.

Since that loss the Cowgirls have lost three consecutive games by an average of 32 points a contest.

Tuesday was more of the same as the Ravens rolled to the easy win.

Ridgeview cruised to a 19-6 first quarter lead and never looked back as they rolled over the host Cowgirls.

The Ravens led 37-17 at the half, and extended their lead to 53-23 by the end of the third quarter. The 69 points scored by Ridgeview was their second highest point-total of the season.

While the Ravens were racking up the points the Cowgirls struggled with their shooting touch. The team hit just 10 field goals in the contest and were a miserable 8 of 23 from the foul line.

Ridgeview was led by McKenzie Hidalgo who led all scorers with 22 points, including four long-range bombs.

Kimmer Severance led the Cowgirls with 13 points, while Kelsie Smith finished with seven.

“After we were eliminated from the playoffs it’s been difficult to motivate some of the girls to bring the kind of energy and effort it takes to compete,”Malott said.

With the win, 18th-ranked Ridgeview earns the right to play at 13th-ranked Cascade this Friday in a play-in game. Ridgeview finishes the regular season with a 15-8 overall record and a 3-0 record in Special District 1.

Meanwhile, the Cowgirls finish their season with a 7-18 overall record and an 0-3 district mark.
