The Chadron girls dropped the regular season finale at home on Saturday evening to Newcastle, WY 50-36.
A back and forth 2nd quarter left the Cardinals trailing by just a point at the break 27-26, but the Dogies, the #1 team in Wyoming’s Class 3A, outscored Chadron 10-3 in the 3rd quarter to extend their lead.
The deficit was kept in single digits through most of the 4th quarter before Newcastle knocked down a couple of clutch shots to hold off any Chadron rally.
Demi Ferguson was the only Cardinal in double figures with 12 points.
Chadron turns their attention to the C1-12 sub-district this next week and will play the winner of Ogallala and Hershey on Tuesday at the Bird Cage at 5:00 pm.
