Back on Jan. 14, Roseville and Hastings played against one another in girls basketball. It's easy to say the game was a one-sided affair. Roseville won, 70-20.

Last week, when the two teams met again, much had changed.

Roseville ended up winning the game, but the score at 49-35 was a great sight for Hastings coach Mike Harp.

"I was very proud of the effort and the improvement we showed over the last time we played them," Harp said. "I know we lost, but it was a great effort on the girls' part."

Hastings trailed 27-17 at halftime. At one point in the second half, Hastings cut the lead to just six points.

"We just couldn't quite get over the hump," Harp said, "but they're an excellent team. The second half of the game may have been the best half of basketball we played all year. The girls played really well."

Hastings was led in scoring by Liz Keena, who was the only Hastings player in double figures. She finished with 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.

"She played very well defensively," Harp said. "She got everybody else in the game, too. She did a great job with her leadership on the floor. All around, it was a great game from Liz."

Kallie Dylla had a strong defensive effort, as did Jordan Marshall, Harp said.

Additional scoring for the Raiders went like this: Emily Daggett had 4, Hannah Norman had 3, Lexie Harp had 6 and Marshall had 1.

Tuesday

Keena led the Raiders in scoring with 15 points.

Also scoring were: Daggett 4, Mary Haglund 6, Norman 2, Kelsey Nelson 6, Harp 2 and Becky Church 2.

Hastings is now 1-23 on the season.
