On Tuesday, February 10th, the River City Girls basketball team hosted Woodland High School for their senior night, which was their last home game of the season.                                                              After the tears of joy and the showing of a sentimental power point created by River City coach Jamie King, the Lady Raiders put their game faces on to prepare for a battle on the court.                              Their determination showed in their faces and by the look in their eyes, the girls were not going to let Woodland beat them on Senior Night.                                                                                                     The tip-off was won by the Lady Raiders but River City got off to a slow start, which forced Coach King to call an early first quarter timeout with the score 4-3 Woodland leading.                                           After the timeout, River City came to life and ended the first quarter with a 12-0 run, ending the first quarter with a score of 15-4, River City leading.                                                                                           The second quarter was no different and River City did not let off the gas pedal, forcing Woodland to call a timeout only 1 minute into the quarter.                                                                               River City continued to perform on both ends of the floor and headed into halftime with a lead of 37-13.                                                                                                                                                  Coming out of the half, Woodland had already been defeated by the looks on their faces. River City noticed that and did not let up against them.                                                                                          The Lady Raiders did not want to leave any room for a chance for Woodland to somehow overcome the 24 point lead.                                                                                                                                    Woodland ended the quarter on a run of their own but still trailed River City with a score of 52-25.                                                                                                                                                                     With time winding down, River City rested their players for the next game against Yuba City and finished off Woodland with a score of 62-27, ultimately winning on their Senior Night.
