WARTRACE -- The Cascade Middle Lady Champions kicked off their week with a convincing 36-19 victory over Eagleville on Monday.

Eagleville had little answer for Cascade's Kristen Heath, who scored a game-high 19 points to lead the Lady Champs to the win.

Cascade capitalized on a hot start in the first quarter, jumping out to a 10-5 lead with some tough defense.

Eagleville matched pace with the Cascade in the second quarter, with both teams accounting for eight points.

Cascade still went into the half with an 18-13 advantage. But while the Lady Eagles were able to match pace in the second quarter, they couldn't come up with near the offense in the final two quarters of play.

Consistency

While Cascade matched it's 18-point first half, Eagleville only managed six total points in the second half.

Cascade proved efficient from the charity stripe, knocking down 7-of-13 tries.

Bailey Sudduth also added a trifecta in the fourth quarter to help slam the door on the Lady Eagles.

Heath scored 12 of her 19 points in the first half, four of which came from the free throw line.

She helped put the Lady Eagles in foul trouble early by driving the paint and drawing the foul, setting up several 3-point play attempts.

But the Lady Eagles weren't without their playmakers. Mallory Moiser led the visitors with a team-high nine points.

While she was able to keep the game close in the first half, she struggled to find the open shots in the second half.

Cascade returns to action this evening when the Lady Champs travel to Moore County with the opening tipoff set for 6 p.m.
