LYNCHBURG -- Moore County simply had no answer for Cascade Middle's Kristen Heath. Heath scored a game-high 29 points, boosting Cascade to its second win this week with a 41-28 win over the Raiderettes on Tuesday night.

While Heath was the consistent scorer throughout the night, it was Moore County who held the early advantage.

The Raiderettes spread out the attack and saw points from five different players to hold a 10-8 lead after one quarter of play.

But Cascade struck back in the second, outscoring the home team 9-4 to go into the half with a 17-14 advantage.

New energy

While Cascade's offense was sluggish throughout the first half, Moore County couldn't stop the onslaught in the last two quarters of play.

Cascade exploded for 14 more points in the third, 10 of which came from Heath's hot hand. The Lady Champs tacked on 10 more in the fourth, most of which came again from the high-scorer.

Heath shot an impressive 6-of-9 attempts from the free throw line in the fourth quarter alone, boosting Cascade to the win.

But Heath wasn't the only effective offensive asset the Lady Champs turned to for key points in the game. Delaney Vaught tacked on six points while Bailey Sudduth added four. Sydney Smith also added a bucket to her credit as well.

The Lady Champs travel to Westwood on Monday for another road contest with the opening tipoff set for 6 p.m.
