Victoria Hansen led the Raiders in scoring with 13 points. Shelby Steinke also chipped in 10 points.

“They pressured us in the first half and we turned the ball over way too many times. We did come back and had a nice second half, but free throws decided it at the end,” said Rapids coach Dan Hancock.
