December 16, 2012Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School
The Lady Cardinals took on the Lady Green Bears of Ottawa Hills in a TAAC encounter. The early part of the game saw two teams stuggling on the offensive end of the floor, but the Lady Cardinals closed the first quarter with a 9-6 lead. The second quarter saw a little more of the same, but the Cardinals took a 26-20 lead at the half behind Junior Caty Rieker's 7 points and Senior Abby Mass' 6 points.
The Lady Cardinals extended their lead, at times, to as many as 9 points in the second half. The Cardinals closed the third quarter leading 36-32. The Green Bears dialed up their half court defensive pressure in the fourth quarter and the inexperienced Lady Cardinals turned the ball over with poor decisions leading to a crushing 50-42 loss on the road. Senior Abby Mass lead the Lady Cardinal attack with 16 points. Sophomore Cecelia Gozdowski had 12 points, followed by Junior Caty Rieker contibuting 11 points. The freshman duo of Kali Hardy and Maggie Merren closed out the scoring with 2 and 1 respectively.
