UNIONVILLE – After a slow start, the Moore County Raiderettes erupted in the second half to pick up a 49-35 win over Community on Friday night.
Moore County trailed 17-15 at halftime after playing most of the second period without senior Sarah Raby, who was on the bench with two fouls.
With Raby back in the lineup, the Raiderettes scored 24 points in the third quarter, however, to pull ahead for good. While Raby occupied the Community defense, it was fellow seniors Kelsey Camp and Erin Thomas who took control of the game offensively.
Thomas had three 3-pointers in the game and led the Raiderettes with 14 points. Raby had 13 despite the foul trouble, and Camp scored nine, all in a five-minute stretch of the third quarter. Savannah Williams chipped in eight; Abby Grogan and Whitney Lemmon had two apiece; and Makayla Ray scored one.
The Raiderettes were slated to travel to Fayetteville on Saturday to face Lincoln County.
