RAHWAY, NJ - The final three quarters of the Summit / Rahway girls varsity basketball match-up were played pretty much even-steven, the visiting Hilltoppers shading the scoreline by a single point.

The opening eight minutes? Well, let's just say that jumping out to a 13-point lead on the road is a pretty good harbinger of some good things to come. Doing that while shutting out your opponent? That, basketball fans, is the epitome of laying down a hoops marker.

And that is just what the Hilltoppers did against the Indians, bolting out to a 13-0 lead and really never looking back, getting 22 combined points from senior captains Christina Richson (12) and Catherine Maloney (10) en route to a 41-27 victory.

The win was the Maroon and White's second in a row -- altering the streak of win one, lose one over their opening six games -- and lifts Summit's season record to 4-3.

Freshman Annabella Yorio had 11 rebounds and five assists, while Rahway's Wil'Lisha Jackson had a big game, notching a 13-point, 14-rebound double-double.

After Summit won the third quarter 17-9 to take a 37-15 lead, the final score could have been even more lopsided, but the Maroon and White eased off the petrol over the final eight minutes and coasted home.

Next up for the Hilltoppers is a 'Summit Hoops Derby' versus Oak Knoll at the Main Gym. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
