Area Girls Basketball: Balanced attack lifts Cardinals over Pequot


PEQUOT LAKES — Who do you guard?

That was the question Pequot Lakes Patriots head coach Jon Dale struggled with before, during and after Tuesday’s Mid-State Conference clash against the Staples-Motley Cardinals.

Nine different players scored for Class 2A’s sixth-ranked Cardinals, leading to a 78-52 victory.

Of those nine players, five scored nine or more points. Four different Cardinals hit 3-pointers, helping them connect on 42 percent (10-of-24) from beyond the arc.
