Sophomore post Chloe Gannon stepped out of her comfort zone in the second half Saturday afternoon – knocking down a pair of 3-pointers to help lead the Central High School Lady Raiders to a 66-26 win over visiting Goodpasture.

Gannon finished the game with 18 points – 12 coming in the second half, and of those came on two third quarter possessions when she was left unguarded at the top of the arch and drained 3-pointers.

“I’m glad to see Chloe shoot that,” said CHS head coach Joe Pat Cope. “We have to have the confidence that we can knock those down if they are going to leave us open like that.”

Senior Bella Vinson teamed up with Gannon to help the Lady Raiders pull away in the third quarter. Vinson scored 11 of her 22 in the third period, leaving the game with 2 minutes left in the quarter. Vinson finished with a game-high 22 points.
