Defense comes up big for Raiders against Pirates

The search for an offensive spark continues, but for now, the defense is getting the job done for the Benjamin Logan girls basketball team.

A balanced offense combined with a relentless defense allowed the host Raiders to roll past Riverside 49-28 in a local non-league matchup Monday night.

“It was good to get the win,” said Ben Logan head coach Donnie Sosby. “We are getting better, but we still have a long way to go. The girls’ confidence is getting where it needs to be.”

Ben Logan (1-2) created numerous turnovers on defense that led to transition points.

The Raiders’ offense did its part by sharing the ball and only committing two turnovers.

“Our offense was more balanced and it has to be because we don’t have a true shooter in our group,” said Sosby. “We have to apply pressure on defense to create some offensive opportunities.”
