Whitehead

Sophomore Tate Whitehead (3) finished with 14 points, one of four Southridge players in double figures in Saturday's 54-48 win at Evansville Christian. 

EVANSVILLE — Southridge played in a couple of close, tight games this weekend, though Saturday's game at Evansville Christian delivered a more favorable outcome for the Raiders (8-8).

They led the Eagles (8-7), 45-44, in a tight game, though an and-one from senior Collin Tooley provided a big bucket, even though he couldn't complete the three-point play. A made free throw from sophomore Noah Wright pushed it to 48-44, while a couple of clutch free throws from sophomore Brock Thacker allowed more breathing room.
