Middle School Girls Basketball - The Home Opener

On Monday, December 6th, the Lady Crusaders squared off against Cardinal-Newman. The usual signature press wreaked havoc early but their offense struggled. Within a few minutes, Madison Coker settled in, grabbed multiple rebounds and dropped in three buckets. Co- Captain Kaleigh Howell swished a baseline jumper and the Lady Crusaders took an 11 - 2 lead to end the 1st quarter. Early second quarter - Leila Spotts and Kendall Murray continued disrupting the Cardinal offense. And, the game was finally put away after Mason Heffron came alive and scored 8 points and the steady Howell added 4 more. By half time the issue was no longer a doubt for our Lady Crusaders. Lady Crusaders 32, Lady Cardinals 4. The second half featured an aggressive and stingy half-court defense which transitioned into a string of full- court layups. Final score 40-11 - chalk another one up for our Lady Crusaders!!
