GIRLS BASKETBALL: Goff scores 1,000th point, leads Upper Dublin past Ridley

Montgomery Media / BOB RAINES Upper Dublin's Curtrena Goff (3) celebrates scoring her 1,000th career point with her teammates during Saturday's District One Class AAAA playoff win over Ridley.
Upper Dublin knew that its District One Class AAAA first round playoff matchup with 30th-seeded Ridley was going to be a challenge all along. Despite the disparity between the two teams’ seeds and records, the Lady Cardinals needed a spark to get past a tough opponent.

Curtrena Goff’s 1,000th career point was just what they needed.

“I said to the girls before the game that this Ridley team is better than a 30th seed, so we weren’t taking them lightly,” Upper Dublin coach Morgan Funsten said. “The game was slow to start, but we made a great run in the second quarter. It was great for [Goff] to get her 1,000th point, that’s always special.”

After a slow start, third-seeded Upper Dublin used Goff’s 1,000th point to propel it to a 46-32 win over Ridley. Led by Goff’s 18 points, the Lady Cardinals used a big second quarter and defense to push them past a very physical Ridley team that was much better than its seed suggests.
