UNIONVILLE -- Cascade's dynamic duo of Bailey Sudduth and Kristen Heath just wasn't enough to overcome an overpowering Community Middle Viqueen attack on Monday as the Viqueens dealt the Lady Champs their second loss of the season, 46-35.

On the stats sheet, Cascade had everything that would appear to lead to a big win. Heath had a game-high 20 points and Sudduth knocked down four 3-pointers and also hit double digits with 13 points.

But as impressive as the Cascade pair was, they couldn't overpower the Viqueens, who dominated the paint and put six players into the scoring column.

Community took control early and led 12-6 after one quarter of play, but Cascade stormed back in the second and knotted the game at 12 points apiece after Heath scored six-straight points, including a pair off steals.

But Community then went on a 9-0 run to regain control just before the half.

Big second half

The Viqueens added 22 more points in the second half to cruise to the win.

The Lady Champs continued to find shots in the second half, but just couldn't finish. Cascade's troubles continued off the glass as well.

The Viqueens dominated the Lady Champs with several rebounds leading to key points in transition.

Winners' leaders

While Sudduth and Heath led Cascade's offense, the Viqueens answered with their own one-two punch with Alyssa Freeman and Karla Pena, who dominated the lane all night.

The pair combined for 29 points.

Cascade will look to rebound on Thursday as the Lady Champs travel to Eagleville while Community hosts MTCS for homecoming. Both games tip off at 6 p.m.
