MOUNDRIDGE – Tuesday, the Moundridge girls used a stiff defense to help shutdown Ell-Saline and record a 13-point, 57-44 win.
The win puts the season mark for the Lady Wildcats at 8-7 as they prepare for a huge cross county rivalry battle with Inman on Friday.
It was all offense in the first quarter as the Lady Wildcats jumped out to a 24-16 lead before holding Ell-Saline to just five points in the second quarter while scoring a dozen to give Moundridge a commanding 15-point, 36-21 advantage heading to the halftime break. After the Lady Wildcats extended their lead to 19 at 47-28 by the end of the third quarter, Ell-Saline was able to chip a few points off their deficit though it was not enough to keep Moundridge from earning the final 13-point victory.
