South Ripley 49, Milan 39; 2A-45 Round 1 (SEILS Webcast)

Vevay-  Tough to beat a team three times in a season and even more so if it is three times in a month. But South Ripley accomplished just that with a 49-39 win over Milan during Tuesday’s first round of 2A Sectional 45 at Switzerland County.

This game was part of our Highpoint Health Basketball Webcast Schedule and can be seen again in HD by clicking here.

Coach Matt McNew’s Lady Raiders never trailed holding leads of 10-6, 23-11 and 35-22 at the end of first three stops.

The best run for coach Bob Bressert’s Lady Indians came in the fourth quarter. Down 20, the Tribe scored nine straight to get within 11 before later falling by 10.

South Ripley’s Lindsey Meyer was our Southeastern Indiana REMC Power Player of the Game.  She had a team-high 14 points, all of which came in the second half.

Teammates Sarah Meyer, Gracie Gunter and Cierra Copeland all followed with nine points while Rachel Meyer scored eight as part of a very balanced attack.  Milan’s Lauren Roell led all scorers with 16 points and Indians’ senior CiCi Bailey scored 11 in the final game of her high school career.

South Ripley’s biggest advantage was on the glass where they outrebounded Milan 33-18 including 14-7 on the offensive end.
