Monmouth-Roseville Girls Rout Rockridge, Move to 10-0 Overall.


The Monmouth-Roseville Titans varsity girls basketball team got an early game start on Monday evening, taking on TRAC-West rival Rockridge in the final game of a 6 game home-stand at 5:30 PM. The Titans lost all 4 games they played against Rockridge last season, but the story was different this game as Monmouth-Roseville started fast and cruised to an easy win to stay perfect on the year.

The Rockridge Rockets would score the first 3 points of the game, however the Titans responded in kind with a 16-3 run for the rest of the first quarter. M-R continued to pace Rockridge in the second quarter, taking a 34-16 lead into the halftime break. The Titans defense forced 17 turnovers in the ha;f, and every player who started got on the scoring sheet.

The second half of the game took on much of the same shape as the first. The Titans defense continued to be lock-down, forcing several more turnovers, and only recorded one foul in the first three quarters of play. Offensively M-R continued to pour on the points, scoring 24 in the third quarter, bringing the total to 58-21 before the final 8 minutes of play. A running clock would be instituted in the fourth quarter, as the final score would round out at 66-28 in favor of the Titans.

In the statbook for the Titans, Tatianna Talivaa led in scoring with 15, while Brianna Woodard added 10, Mattie Gillen added 9, and Mariah Reading had 8. The win tonight moves the Titans to 4-0 in Three Rivers Conference play, and 10-0 overall. The girls are off for the rest of the week until Saturday, when they travel to Camp Point Central.
