Demi Ferguson scored a game high 16 points including all 10 of Chadron’s points in the 4th quarter and their only basket in overtime as they held off Valentine 40-39 on Saturday night.
The Cardinals struggled in the opening half falling behind by double digits and trailing 26-17 at the half.
Macey Daniels knocked down a pair of threes in the 3rd that helped Chadron outscore the Badgers 11-2 heading to the final 8 minutes.
The Chadron boys put four players in double figures led by 14 from Justus Alcorn in a 65-41 victory over Valentine.
Just like the girls game, the Cardinal boys struggled to shake Valentine in the first half and led 30-24 at the break, but a dominating 4th helped put the game away.
Collin Brennan, Xander Provance, and Dawson Dunbar ended the night with 10 points each.
Both teams own records of 13-7 heading into the final week of the regular season. Girls sub-district host sites and pairing will be released on Thursday.
