Lady Cardinals Trip Up Comets
December 25, 2012Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School
The Lady Cardinal Basketball Program took a HUGE step forward Saturday evening. The young hoopsters returned to "The Nest" to battle the Lady Comets of Genoa in a non-league encounter. All did not start well for the Lady Cardinals as they struggled throughout the first quarter, finding themselves down double digits early, but regrouped, to find themselves only down 15-6 after one.
The second quarter saw the young Lady Cardinals GROW UP. Showing better composure and passion the Lady Cardinals outscored their opponent 16-7 and headed to the break tied at 22-22. The second half saw both teams trade baskets in the third quarter, and the quarter closed with the teams knotted at 32. The fourth stanza saw much of the same as the two teams battled and traded baskets. The Lady Cardinals executed down the stretch, playing good defense and handling the Lady Comets pressure to hold a 15-13 advantage in the fourth, and capturing an exciting 47-45 home court victory. Junior Caty Rieker led the attack with 16 points. Senior Abby Mass contributed 14 points and Sophomore Cecelia Gozdowski added 12 points. The Freshman tandem of Maggie Merren and Kali Hardy tossed in 4 and 1 respectively.
