The Redding Christian girls advanced in the Northern Section Division VI playoffs on Friday with a 61-28 win over Weed as the Sadie Alexander passed 1,000 career points in the victory.

The four-year varsity player entered the game sitting at 993 points and led all scorers with 22 point, including 6-of-10 from 3-point range.

“We came out from the tip-off ready to go and continued out focus, effort and desire to compete,” Lions coach Scott Alexander said.

The No. 1 seeded Lions jumped on the Cougars 24-6 in the opening period and extended that lead to 38-12 at intermission.

Aleah Matos scored 13 and Sammie Wunner added 11 points and seven rebounds in the win. Wunner, the RC center should be the next Lions to eclipse the 1,000-point mark as she boosted her total from 966 to 977 heading into the semifinal round against No. 4 Loyalton. Should the Lions advance to the finals and into NorCal play, Wunner would have at least three games to earn the 23 points.

“I’m proud of their unselfish play and gritty tough defense. We now prepare for Loyalton,” coach Alexander said.
