Cardinal team put up 53 points to the Trojans 21. In the first varsity game of the night the Lady

could handle in the varsity matchup and it culminated with a 9-51 Trojan loss. Struggling to find
the basket, left the high point output at only four points which was scored by junior Kirsten
Marcotte. Senior Khloee Braun had 5 rebounds and 1 assist. The Trojans boys were able to
