Woodbridge 68, Laurel 56
The sweet taste of victory has eluded the Blue Raider girls' basketball program for four years, including the first 14 game of the 2002-2003 season.
But all of that futility, going back to 1999, finally ended when Woodbridge knocked off Laurel with what was by far its highest scoring game of the season.
The Blue Raiders hadn't won a game since Feb. 15, 1999, when they defeated Delmar 40-29.
Since then, they had gone 0-for-2000, 0-for-2001, 0-for-2002, and 0-for-2003.
Rayna Horsey and Brittany Kilgoe were the sparks for the victory as they poured in 21 points apiece. Kilgoe sank a pair of three-pointers.
The Raiders won the game with a strong second half performance. Leading 26-25 at halftime, the Raiders pulled away in the second half by outscoring Laurel 18-12 in the third quarter and 24-19 in the fourth.
Besides Horsey and Kilgoe, the Raiders also got double-figure performances from Alexis Cannon and Tiandra Felix with 11 points apiece.
The 68 points were not only the highest this season but Woodbridge, but also the highest the program has scored in more than four years.
