Lady Cardinals Fall To Toledo Christian
December 9, 2012Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School
The Lady Cardinal Basketball team traveled to Toledo Christian to battle the Lady Eagles in the TAAC opener. The Lady Cardinals battled the talented Lady Eagles during the opening stanza with an attack attitude. Maggie Merren and Caty Rieker took the ball strong to the glass drawing fouls and converting free throw attempts. The first quarter came to a close with the Lady Cardinals trailing 14-10. The Lady Eagles turned up their defensive intensity to open the second quarter and the young Lady Cardinals had difficulty matching that intensity, heading to the break trailing 36-17. The Lady Cardinals briefly rallied in the third quarter outscoring the Lady Eagles 11-9. Too many turnovers and bad decisions led to a 56-33 defeat. Freshman Maggie Merren and Junior Caty Rieker led the Lady Cardinal with 11 and 7 points respectively. Senior Abby Mass added 6, Sophomore Cecelia Gozdowski and Senior Hannah Tucker each had 4 points, and Rosa Mondragon added a free throw.
