Last Saturday's opening basketball game for the Cedaredge Lady Bruins and Ridgway Lady Demons wasn't the most aesthetic picture, but a 34-32 win got Cedaredge off to a positive start for its 2012-13 hoops campaign.
Joe Berger's squad trailed 6-5 after one period, but five points from junior Kaitlyn Kissner and another four from sophomore Kristen Gardner helped Cedaredge salvage a 16-16 tie at halftime.
Action in the third quarter was slow once again. Missed shots and miscues limited scoring in the quarter for both teams. Kristen Gardner canned four points to lead the Lady Bruins to a 24-20 lead heading into the final period of play.
Even though Cedaredge was outscored 12-10 in the final stanza, the hustling play of the Lady Bruins was enough to help record Cedaredge's first win of the season, 34-32. Junior Alyssa Isaman provided a needed spark with her five points in the fourth quarter to help perserve the victory.
Kristen Gardner's 11 points paced the winners with Isaman's 10 points next high. Ridgway's Grozier had 14 points and Dickerson finished with 10.
The Lady Bruins are off this week but face two 3A WSL opponents on the road next week. On Tuesday (Dec. 11), Cedaredge travels to Gunnison for a 5:30 p.m. contest and then is in Olathe on Friday for another 5:30 p.m. contest. Junior varsity play is first.blog comments powered by Disqus
