(Neb.)- Chadron Takes Rotary Tournament With Win Over Valentine
(Chadron)- A slow first quarter didn't stop the Chadron boys from winning the championship of the Chadron Rotary George Watson Holiday Classic 44-30 over Valentine of Saturday.
Baskets were hard to come by in the first quarter as Chadron held a 6-3 lead over the Badgers early on. The Cardinals were able to pick up the scoring in the 2nd quarter on seven field goal makes and hitting 4-of-5 from the free throw line to capture a 24-13 halftime lead.
Chadron kept firing on all cylindars in the 3rd, extending their lead out to 20, allowing just one Badger basket.
Valentine would put a scare in to Chadron late in the game, but the Cards closed it out from the free throw line.
Chadron did not have a single player in double digits, but were led by Coy Bila's 9-points. Jeff Cerny and Cooper Heusma each had 8.
Chadron is now 4-5 on the season ahead of next Saturday's game with Mitchell.
