Cardinals can't solve Fudd, Cadets, 64-53
Bishop Ireton again battled the WCAC's top ranked squad but couldn't get over the hump in a 64-53 semifinal setback at American University's Bender Arena Sunday. The Cardinals came out fast and held an 11-10 lead after one, and trailed only 29-25 at intermission. But, as champions often do, the Cadets made a 4-point advantage a 7-point margin after three quarters and outscored Ireton by four in the final frame.
Symantha Shackelford had a team-high 17 with 4 three's while Sydney Peters had 15 points on 5 three-balls, Akunna Konkwo added 13 from inside the paint. Freshman Azzi Fudd, the WCAC player of the year, led all scorers with 33 points.
