(Neb.)-Chadron outlasts Valentine on the road
Both Chadron basketball teams started slow but used big fourth quarters to come out on top Tuesday night in Valentine with the boys getting a 54-43 victory and the girls winning 63-53.
The boys game was a defensive battle for most of the night with neither team getting much separation. Valentine led 8-5 after the first quarter and 19-18 at the half. The teams continued to play evenly through the third quarter when a TD Stein three pointer at the buzzer put Chadron up 32-30.
Jake Bargen and Vonsinh Sayaloune hit threes of their own to put the Cardinals up 38-30 with 6:37 left in the game and Chadron never gave the lead back. Valentine was able to cut it back down to a one possession game, but Chadron pushed the lead to 11 for the first time in the game with under two minutes remaining and held on for the victory.
The Cardinals hit six shots from beyond the arc in the second half, after just two in the first. Stein led the team in scoring with 13 and Sayaloune added 12.
The Chadron girls made a few baskets early in their game but went ice cold midway through the first period and didn't score for nearly five minutes. They were able to play good enough defense to keep the lead though, and led 30-21 at intermission. Valentine cut the deficit to within five in the third quarter, but Chadron began scoring again to pull away in the final frame.
The Lady Cardinals had a balanced offensive attack, with Peyton Hinn and Ashlea Kerr scoring 15 points each. Chandler Hageman added 13 and Jadyn McCartney chipped in 12 off the bench.
Chadron's next games will be Friday when they host Sidney. It will be senior night for the girls and their final home game of the regular season.
