The Chadwick Lady Cardinals defeated the Lady Trojans, 68-33, asserting their dominance with a 23-point first quarter that established what would be an unbreakable lead.
…Chadwick started strong from behind the three-point line with Kailyn Rozell, who finished with 17 points, scoring three 3’s in the first quarter.
Hursh followed up draining an astounding eight 3-pointers throughout the game, which accounted for 24 of her game-high 26 points, including three consecutive shots from downtown in the third quarter.
…“Well, when I’m wide open, that’s when I’ll take a three,” Hursh said about her shooting strategy. “And some of the girls on the team know to set a screen and get me open. When your short (5 foot 2 inches) you’ve gotta know how to find space.”
…The Cardinals benched Hursh early in the fourth quarter, but sophomore Hailey Stevens stepped up, making offensive plays and skirting around the Trojan offense to deliver a series of layups accounting for six of her 11 points.
