The Toledo girls basketball team turned in a dominant defensive outing to earn a season-opening win, downing Rochester 44-23 in a non-league matchup.
The Riverhawks held the Warriors to single-digits in all four quarters, with the hosts scoring just 10 points in the first half and 13 in the second. Rochester went 8 for 52 from the field, and 6 for 23 from the free-throw line.
“Our girls played hard, but like all first games, turnovers at the start hurt us,” Rochester coach Davina Serdahl said. “Once we settled down the shots were there but we had a hard time converting. We had a few players playing out of their normal positions, once we get some key players returned, our overall team play will improve. I am happy the shots and free throws were there, we just need to hit some of those.”
Ryah Stanley led the Riverhawks with 16 points, and Roisin Stull led the Warriors with nine points and 10 rebounds.
Toledo (1-0) will head to 2B South Bend on Thursday, while Rochester (0-1) will play at 1A Elma.
