The 40-point outburst was a career-high for the Raiders' athletic all-state point guard. She spread out her offensive attack. Williams scored 10 points in the first period and added 13 in the second. She then scored eight in the third and nine more in the fourth to account for her big night.
Reed’s sharp-shooting junior guard Tyler Sumpter missed her second straight game, but Raiders post Tina Vernon helped provide some offensive balance, chipping in 15 points toward Reed’s winning cause.
Diana Regalado was the lone Douglas player to finish in double figures in the scoring column, finishing with 11 points. Only five other DHS players scored and none had more than six points.
Reed built itself an 18-8 lead after the first quarter and pushed its lead to 39-14 by halftime. The visitors forged ahead 58-27 after three quarters.
Reed improved to 4-0 on the young season. All four wins have come in conference play. The Raiders return to the hardwood for a home game Saturday at 11:45 a.m. against High Desert League rival McQueen.
