WARREN OH- The first time Garfield and Champion met this season, the G-Men had to dodge a mighty upset bid. Champion scored 19 points in the third and pushed Garfield to the edge, even though they won the game, the Flashes made them sweat it out. On Monday when the two teams met again in Champion, Garfield would not let the team in purple gain momentum. They hit cruise control on their way to a 53-38 win.
Mandy Cardinal was the pace setter for Garfield with 15 points on the night. She wasn’t the only one that got in to double figures as Laura McCoy and Madeline Shirkey both scored 12. Zoey May added 6 points to the Garfield offense.
Bella Meyer put together a great night as always for Champion. She finished with a game-high 17 points for the Flashes. Kayla Haynie worked her way to 8 points while Addie Warzala finished with 7.
Garfield is still tied in first place at the top of the MVAC, and they’ll try to keep that up on Thursday as they host Liberty. Champion will try to put it together on Thursday as they host Campbell.
