A career night by JoLynn Glorioso was not enough as St. Mary’s found life – and Taylor Phillips – difficult on the road Friday at The Barstow School.

A career night by JoLynn Glorioso was not enough as St. Mary’s found life – and Taylor Phillips – difficult on the road Friday at The Barstow School.

Phillips hung 30 points on the Trojans, outdueling Glorioso, who scored 28 points, as the Knights defeated St. Mary’s 49-41 in a Crossroads Conference game.

“Defensively you can’t let one girl score 30 points,” Trojans head coach Krista Daniels said.

The Trojans (10-12, 4-6 Crossroads) got of to a slow start, but bounced back in the second half to make things interesting. They trailed  23-15 at halftime, but played the Knights even in the second half.

“We didn’t really play a good first half,” Daniels said. “We did a good job in the second half coming back, but we still lost the game.”

Glorioso’s 28 points was a team, season and career high. She was 10 of 10 from the free throw line.

“She had an excellent game,” Daniels said.

RAYTOWN 61, RAYTOWN SOUTH 36: For the second time in as many years, the Blue Jays beat their rivals to lay claim to the Class 5 District 13 championship.

Behind 21 points and eight assists from Timeka O’Neal and 8 points and 15 rebounds from Atoya Harris, the Blue Jays advanced to Wednesday’s sectional round, where they will face the winner of tonight’s District 14 championship game at Blue Springs South between Blue Springs and Lee’s Summit North.

“It’s always great to beat your rival,” Blue Jays head coach Jan Handley said. It’s even better to win a district  championship. That’s back-to-back district championships and both times we’ve won over South. We haven’t lost to them in the four years that I’ve been coach here.”

Kelsey Barrett added 13 points for Raytown (16-8) and Tanchell Hollingsworth scored a team-high 24 points for the Cardinals.

Boys

Hail the champions.

Barstow capped a 10-0 Crossroads Conference and 20-4 regular season with an easy 76-48 victory over visiting St. Mary’s Friday night.

“The first quarter set us back,” St. Mary’s coach Byron Jones said. “We were tied 4-4 and then they went on a 17-0 run. The second half we did a good job and did some things well. But when you play a team like Barstow you can’t fall behind by 17 in the first quarter.”

Brett Scassellati scored 18 points as the Trojans finished the regular season 11-14 and 4-6 in the conference.

Lawrence Brown poured in 22 points, Ethan Thomas 19 and Shane Rudman 15 on five second-half 3-pointers to power Barstow, which enjoyed a safe 32-13 halftime lead.

St. Mary’s faces top-seeded Higginsville at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the Class 3 District 15 tournament at Lexington.
