In the second quarter, when the team’s starters came into the game, Redwood took a decisive lead, scoring six more goals, including one at the buzzer. By halftime, their strong offensive play put them ahead 9-2.

Redwood controlled most of the game, and managed to score another six goals during the second half. Freshmen Ely Selden and Owen Henderson were effective defensively, blocking their opposing players from passing and scoring before the shot clock ran out.

According to junior Skyler Cox, one of their goals had been to replicate plays they had run in practice.

Coach Scott Gregory said that they’ve been working on drawing more fouls and setting up picks.

Although Redwood won comfortably, Gregory said that it was not one of their best performances.

“We tend to play better against harder teams,” Gregory said.

Redwood’s next game will be against Tam on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
