Alex Stream poured in 11 points before her father even arrived at Western Christian High School as she led the Loma Linda Academy Roadrunners to a double digit first quarter lead. Stream and Corinn Clevenger were the recipients of numerous feeds into the post from Caitlin Terukina. Erika Dalida had 4 steals. The aggressive start wiped away any residual bad taste from their first league loss of the season to Ontario Christian on Tuesday.
Once the lead was established, Coach Bri Carroll mixed her starters and bench for much of the rest of the game. Auriel Fenison grabbed 3 steals in the second quarter while Jacqui Jones had 2 blocks. At the half, the Roadrunners were comfortably ahead 34-22.
Jones scored all 10 of her points in the third quarter including some baskets on drives. Terukina hit 2 three pointers. Alex Stream scored another 4 points with her Dad watching. However, the most memorable basket came as Western’s Briana Eldiab hit the floor near the foul line for an offense rebound, flung the ball toward the basket from her knees and scored.
Cece Ewing, Fenisn and Terukina all hit three pointers in the final period as Western tried to defend the post players. The final score was 71-42.
Stream had one of her most prolific offensive games finishing with 15 points while Corinn Clevenger had 12. Terukina finished with 15 points, 7 assists and 2 steals. Jones had 10 points and 6 steals. Karyn Clayton scored 6 points off the bench. The Roadrunners (21-3, 11-1) remain in first place and will play Aquinas next Tuesday.
