STANFIELD 52, RIVERSIDE 38 — At Boardman, the Stanfield Tigers notched their seventh win of the season defeating the Riverside Pirates 52-38 on Tuesday night.

Ryan Bailey paced Stanfield’s (7-1) offense with a game-high 16 points and Antonio Flores added nine points. For Riverside (4-8), Noe Madrigal led the team with 12 points and Eon Castillo netted nine points.

“We played hard in the first half,” said Riverside coach Clair Costello. “Second half we didn’t play well enough on defense and let (Stanfield) get to the basket too much.”

Riverside held a 15-13 lead after the first quarter, but the Tigers battled back to grab a 26-23 lead at halftime and didn’t look back after that.

“We’re struggling to score,” said Costello, “we ran the offense well in the first quarter, but it just deteriorated after that.”
