The Cardinal girls’ three game winning streak came to an end Friday night after a 59-40 defeat in Scottsbluff. The girls then travelled back home Saturday to host the Gering Bulldogs who bested the team 57-42.

Despite starting Saturday’s game strong and leading the Bulldogs 16-11 after the first-quarter, the Cardinals would allow Gering to outscore them nearly two-to-one, and leave the half trailing 33-28.

TheBulldog defense then held the Cardinals to 14 points throughout the rest of the game en route to their 57-42 victory.

Scoring was led by 5’4” junior Paige Lopez of Gering who had 20 points, including three treys. Teammate Makenzie Dunkel added 15 points for the Bulldogs and hit nine of 12 from the free-throw line.

Chadron senior Dana Dunbar had a career high 16 points for the Cardinals, and hit three treys.

In Scottsbluff, Friday night, the Bearcats lept out to a 19-7 lead in the first-quarter and despite Chadron equaling Scottsbluff’s 12 second-quarter points, the Bearcats went into the half with a 31-19 lead.

The deficit would only get worse from there with the Cardinals trailing 51-30 by the end of the third, eventually losing to the Bearcats 59-40.

Scottsbluff’s trio of Aubrey Krentz, Taylor Noe, and Kieyerah Twombly combined for the lion’s share of Bearcat scoring. Krentz finished with 21 points to lead all players, with Noe tallying 13, and Twombly 10. Krentz and Noe also contributed four and three treys, respectively.

Chadron’s Payton Underwood was the only Cardinal to break double-digits with 14 points, and teammate Lindsay Tobacco followed with six points on a pair of treys.
