    Huntley routs Crystal Lake South
    Dave Hess

    Stifling, swarming and effective.

    Those three words aptly describe Huntley's defense. Holding Crystal Lake South to 12 field goals and 30 percent shooting, the Red Raiders' defense keyed a 56-32 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division girls basketball win at Huntley Tuesday night.

    "Collectively, we played great defense," said Huntley coach Steve Raethz. "We contested shots and didn't give them many easy shots. It was a quality defensive effort."

    Crystal Lake South (7-4, 1-1), which committed 23 turnovers, scored in single digits in each of the 4 quarters.

    "This was a butt-whipping," said South coach Kyle McCaughn. "We weren't ready to play and that's my fault. They were more physical and played with more desire. They moved the ball well on offense, but we made it very easy for them."

    Huntley (9-2, 2-0) seized control from the onset and never trailed. Paced by a pair of 3-pointers from Sam Andrews along with a pair of baskets by Haley Ream and a bucket by Bethany Zornow, the Red Raiders jumped out to a 13-3 lead.

    Trailing 15-6 after 1 quarter, the Gators showed signs of life by scoring 5 straight points. South got 2 inside baskets by Sara Mickow, who was plagued by the flu, and a free throw by Rachel Rasmussen to cut the Red Raider lead to 4, 15-11, with 5:22 left in the first half.

    That was as close as Crystal Lake South would get the rest of the night.

    Led led by 5 points from Ali Andrews and 3 from Sam Andrews, Huntley ended the half on a 10-4 run to lead 25-15 at halftime.

    The Red Raiders put the game on ice to start the third quarter with a 12-2 run. Zornow scored 5 points including a 3-pointer and Ali Andrews scored 5 points as Huntley led 37-17 with 3:11 left in the third quarter.

    Huntley's biggest lead was 51-22 after a 3-pointer from Ali Andrews with 4:02 remaining in the game.

    Ali Andrews led the Red Raiders with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocked shots. Sam Andrews added 16 with 8-of-10 from the free throw line. Zornow scored 11 points as the Red Raider trio combined for 46 of Huntley's 56 points.

    "We knew this would be a tough game, said Ali Andrews. "They just beat Cary-Grove and they are a very good team.

    "We played with a lot of confidence," said Sam Andrews. "This is a big win. We rebounded well. We got good shots and played with confidence."

    Kianna Clark paced the Gators with 10 points and 7 rebounds. Mickow, South's leading scorer, was held to 4 points.
