The Boone Central Lady Cardinals concluded the 2011-12 regular season the way they began.
Boone Central hosted Doniphan-Trumbull in the regular-season finale Tuesday, Feb. 7, in Albion and had little trouble rolling over the visiting Cardinals 62-35.
Showing no signs of fatigue from its Mid-State Conference championship game performance in Wayne the previous night, Boone Central took care of business from the opening tip, securing its #1 ranking in the Lincoln Journal-Star Class C1 Top 10 as teams begin sub-district play.
“I felt like this was a really good performance by our team,” praised Cardinal Coach Mike Kennedy. “Less than 24 hours after an emotionally-draining game in Wayne, we were back on the court. We played very hard on defense and competed hard on the boards.
“Britany Seda and Jade Gottier shot the ball very well from the perimeter. Jenna Lehmann and Kattie Cleveland did a nice job rebounding. Jaime (Kennedy) had another great all-around performance.”
There wasn’t much more to be said. When a team dominates offensively, defensively and on the boards, it opens the way for a 17-3 first-quarter blitz, a 27-12 halftime advantage and a 46-18 lead after three periods.
