East Bay’s Shytina Harley, left, and Newsome’s Ilana Aramati refuse to give an inch while battling for a rebound during the second quarter. Harley scored 13 of her 19 during the third quarter as she helped the Indians change the tone of the game.

LITHIA — Neither Newsome nor East Bay came into their matchup Friday night with much of a spark.

Host Newsome had dropped two games in a row and East Bay had lost three straight. Neither team had a win in the new year, and all the games during their recent losing streaks had been district games.

But behind senior Shytina Harley, who scored 13 of her 19 in the third quarter, East Bay seized control and posted a 54-47 win in a key Class 5A, District 8 game.

Early on, however, it was Newsome that controlled the game.

The Wolves (8-8) lead throughout the first half, only once surrendering the lead. But East Bay's defensive play kept the game close.

With her team trailing 24-23 at the half, Harley heated up. She scored eight during a game-changing 13-5 East Bay run that gave it control of the game. By the time the quarter was over, the Indians (11-9) went from down one to up by seven.

Newsome's attempt at a run was plagued with fouls and turnovers as East Bay managed to maintain its advantage.

Harley led all scorers while Brittany Mobley added 16 for East Bay. Newsome was led by Emma Shelley (13 points) and Kelsey Rodriguez (11 points).
