SHELBYVILLE -- The Cascade Middle Lady Champions took an early lead against cross-county rival Liberty on Thursday night and never looked back in an impressive 49-23 win.

The Lady Champs stormed out of the gates and put 14 on the board in the first quarter with Bailey Sudduth and Kristen Heath combining for 11 points.

Liberty regained some momentum in the second frame with a 10-spot led by Sydney Ely's four points.

Close battle early

Despite Liberty finding its rhythm in the second, Cascade matched pace with 10 more to head to the break up 24-13.

While the Lady Pats were able to sink some buckets in the second quarter, they were only able to put 10 more on the board in the second half, while Cascade added 25 to cruise to the win.

Still, Liberty did finish with 7-of-11 tries from the free throw line against Cascade.

But the Lady Champs proved even more productive from the line. As a team, Cascade made good on 14-of-24 attempts.

Good production

The Lady Champs also banked a pair of treys courtesy of Sudduth and Heath as well.

Heath led all scorers with 22 points while Sudduth chimed in with 13.

The Lady Pats, on the other hand, put 10 players into the scoring column, but struggled to mobilize inside the paint.
