The Chadron girls basketball team honored their only Senior, Anika Burke, on Friday night. Burke returned the favor by going 6-for-6 at the free throw line in the final two minutes of the Lady Cardinals 54-46 win over Sidney.

For the game Burke went 8-for-8 from the free throw line and finished with 10 points.

Sidney finished the first half on an 8-0 run to take a 26-18 lead, but Chadron erased it in a hurry with a 22-6 3rd quarter to take a 40-32 lead into the 4th quarter.

Chadron had extended the lead out to 12 at 46-34, but Sidney used a 10-0 to close to gap down to two.

Burke’s free throws coupled with a Demi Ferguson basket sealed the win.

Ferguson scored a game high 13-points. Macey Daniels tallied 12.

Chadron is now 10-6 and plays at Hot Springs on Saturday.
