Second Half Surge Powers Chadron Past G-R


The Chadron boys outscored Gordon-Rushville 30-10 over about the first 14 and half minutes of the 2nd half before the Mustangs ended the game on an 8-0 run, but the Cardinals picked up the 48-39 win on Friday at home.

Chadron went back and forth with Gordon-Rushville in the first half as the two teams tied at seven after the first quarter and then saw the Mustangs cling to a 21-18 halftime lead.

The Cardinals switched from a man to man defense to a trapping 1-3-1 and watched turnovers turn into points, using a 16-5 third quarter run to erase the halftime deficit.

Justus Alcorn led the charge with 17 points and Gaurav Chima had 10.

Chadron is 3-1 on the year and will host Scottsbluff next Friday.
