Riverside 31,

Bradford 26

BRADFORD —The Bradford girls basketball team fell behind early and never recovered Thursday night, falling to visiting Riverside on Senior Night, 31-26.

The Railroaders honored their four seniors — Hannah Fout, Brooke Fair, Chelsea Gill and Ivee Brubaker — on the night, but then fell behind 11-2 after the first quarter and trailed 20-8 at halftime. After trailing 27-16 after three, Bradford cut the deficit to as close as three at 29-26 with around a minute to play but simply couldn’t complete the comeback.

Skipp Miller scored a game-high 17 points to lead the Railroaders, Bianca Keener added four, Gill had three and Fout scored two.

Bradford, which finished the regular season 7-15, has a bye in the first round of the Division IV sectional tournament and will face either Franklin Monroe or Catholic Central Tuesday at Brookville.
