After taking a 12-9 lead in the mid stages of the first quarter, Chadron watched Scottbluff go on a 24-7 run the rest of the half and go on to a 61-38 win on Friday night.
Brodey Planansky and Gaurav Chima each tallied five points in the opening quarter to help Chadron keep it close early, but the offense disappeared and allowed Scottsbluff to take control.
Once again the Bearcats were dangerous from the three point line, connecting on ten tries.
The Cardinals got a double digit effort from Justus Alcorn who finished the game with 10 points.
Chadron is at Bridgeport on Saturday with a 5:00 pm tip off.
