Horseheads NY- Led by Ellie Lesyk, the Lady Raiders opened their season with a convincing 66-42 win over Metro conference contender Union Endicott. Sporting new look uniforms of black with royal blue trim, Horseheads employed what Coach Andy Scott termed "rip and run" basketball. Both teams played to a 15 all tie after one quarter, but the Lady Raiders used multiple runs, especially late in the third quarter to begin pulling away from their guests. Lesyk finished with 18 points followed by 12 from Jen Chalk. Scott was quick to praise the board work of Chalk and Amanda Schiefen. Sierra McIver and Katy Vienneau helped to pace the Tiger attack with 14 and 13 points. Horseheads improves 1-0 while U- E drops to 1-1.
