Chadron Girls Give McLain 115th Career Win


The Chadron girls used a 23-4 second quarter and the first career double digit performance from Jaleigh McCartney to push the Lady Cardinals to a 59-40 win over Hemingford on Tuesday night.

After a sloppy first quarter and great effort from the Lady Bobcats, Hemingford held a 15-7 lead.

Chadron came alive in the 2nd quarter when six players made baskets, including five who had three or more points in the period.

Chadron built an 18 point lead in the 3rd, but Hemingford pulled the margin down to ten late in the quarter before the Cardinals closed the game out in the 4th.

Demi Ferguson had 14 points on the night. McCartney finished with a career high 11.

Chadron is now 7-5 and will head to Alliance on Friday.
