(Neb.)- Lady Cardinal Upset Bid Falls Short
(Chadrad Sports)- The Chadron girls failed to get a good shot off with under 8-seconds left in the game of a 29-26 loss to Mitchell on Saturday.
Defense was outstanding from both teams, but Chadron allowed only one Lady Tiger, All-Stater Keyana Wilfred, to reach double figures with 12.
Mitchell grabbed the early lead in the first quarter at 8-5, and extended it out to 17-11 at the half.
The Lady Cardinals were able to cut the lead down to one heading to the fourth quarter 21-20, holding Mitchell to just four 3rd quarter points.
A Shea Bailey three pointer briefly gave Chadron their only lead of the game at 23-21, but Mitchell responded with a 5-0 run before holding off any late attempts by the Cardinals.
Bailei finished with a team high eight point as Chadron falls to 7-4 on the season. They return to the court on Tuesday, hosting Hemingford at 5:30.
