The Freshman duo of Jaleigh McCartney and Demi Ferguson combined for 21 points to lead the Chadron girls to a 41-29 win over Gordon-Rushville on Saturday night.

For the first time this season McCartney took home high point honors with 11, tying a career high. Ferguson tallied 10.

The first half stayed close throughout as Chadron built a 10-7 lead at the end of the first, and grew it to 21-15 at the half.

Chadron played patient, under control basketball in the 3rd quarter to extend the lead out to 10.

Gordon-Rushville had opportunities in the 4th quarter but Ferguson, Anika Burke, and Jacey Garrett went a combined 6-of-8 at the free throw line to clinch the victory.

Chadron will take a 9-6 record in to Fridays showdown with Sidney at the Bird Cage.
