December 14, 2012Cambridge-Isanti Basketball
The Cambridge-Isanti girls’ basketball team held off a Spring Lake Park rally to defeat them 63-55 on Dec. 6. The victory gives C-I a 3-1 record.
After Spring Lake Park held a 9-8 lead early in the game, Jacket Paige Muehlhauser answered with 7 points to help C-I on a 12-0 run to take a 19-8 lead.
The Bluejackets led 28-21 at halftime.
In the second half, Park kept slicing away at the C-I lead, yet trailed 37-34, 44-40 and 53-50. The Jackets kept their poise and never gave up the lead.
In the final minutes, Park had to foul in hopes C-I would miss their free throws. Instead, Brynn Liljander drained four and Lily Porta two clutch charity tosses that led to a Bluejacket 63-55 triumph.
Liljander led the C-I scoring with 29 points, while Muehlhauser contributed 11 points. Porta added 9 valuable points.
Liljander, beside leading the scoring parade, had nine assists.
