By Kara Miller
The Lady Cardinals' varsity

that was all it took for the
Cards to gain the lead and get
their momentum for the rest of
the ball game. The Lady Cards
won the game, 53-33.
The lone girls held the
Rangers to eight points while
they upped their own by 14 in
the first quarter. Suzy Heide-
man helped the Cards in a big
way in the second quarter by
scoring seven o f her game-
high 15 points. Heideman was
the only Cardinal scorer o f the
quarter, but she kept the in­
tensity rolling on the court.
Dufur matched Heideman with
their 57" junior, Amanda
Lindell, who led her team with
14 points.
In the third, the Cards mixed
up their offense and let every­
one have a chance at a shot at
Camie Burright steals the ball against Dufur
the hoop. That strategy seemed
to be successful, as they held
the Rangers to one point,
while increasing their own Heppner JV teams nearly flawless
