Congratulations to the SCA Stars who won the Championship game of the Parkway Christian Christmas Tournamnet against Cabrini HS by the score of 41-31.

After trialing 2-1, the Stars went on a 9-2 run take a 10-4 lead after the first quarter. SCA utalized their strong inside presence, with Maryann Alexander and Claire McClorey scoring 5 points and 3 points respectively. Lizzy Turek also added 2 points for the Stars.

Offensiely, the second quarter was exciting. Cabrini hit a 3 point shot to begin the quarter, however, Haley Gustad answered right back and matched it. Cabrini then went on a 5-2 run to get within a point, 15-14. SCA took control back and finished the quarter on a 11-5 run to take a 26-19 lead into halftime.

SCA picked up right where they left off and continued to put the pressure on in the third quarter. The Stars scored the first 9 points of the third quarter and took their largest lead of the game, 35-19. Cabrini made a 3 point shot to end the quarter.

The Stars had several good looks at the basket to start the fourth quarter but could not score. Cabrini scored the first 7 points to cut their deficit to 35-29. Claire McClorey ended the scoring drought by making 2 free throws to increase the lead to 8 points. SCA stayed composed and handled Cabrini’s pressure down the stretch.

Maryann Alexander led the team with 16 points. Claire McClorey scored 7 points and Lizzy Turek contributed 6 points.

The Stars improve to 6-1 on the seasons. Their next game Jan. 7 vs Shrine HS.
