The Ell-Saline Cardinals spilt their games at home against Remington.  The Ell-Saline girls were crushed 66-35, but the Cardinal boys came away with a hard fought three point win in the nightcap.


The first 4:00 of the game was even.  Ell-Saline even had a lead early on.  However, the Broncos took control midway through the opening stanza and never looked back.  Due to a 30 point lead by the Broncos, most of the 4th quarter was play with a continuous clock.

Led by senior Kaleigh O’Brien’s game high 24 points, Remington cruised to an easy victory.  Junior Aja Spencer and freshman Emily O’Brien each added a dozen for the Broncos.

Meanwhile, Ell-Saline was led in scoring by senior Keala Wilson who was the only Cardinal in double digits with 11.  Wilson was also the Next Tec Wireless Player of the game with the H & R Block of the Game going to junior Brin Hecker
