The Luxemburg-Casco Spartan girls held off a pesky Southern Door Eagle team 71-57 in a non-conference basketball game Tuesday night on 96.7FM WBDK.
Luxemburg-Casco (7-2) pulled out to an 18-9 lead early and was still able to take a lead of 36-28 at halftime as Cassie Schiltz scored 20 of her game-high 27 points for the Spartans.
Southern Door (9-2) made several runs at the Spartans in the second half and closed within two points before L-C responded with some big three-point baskets to hang on for the victory. Mary Cravillion made four three-pointers in the second half and finished with 18 points while Jenna Jorgenson added 16.
Southern Door was led by Tehya Bertrand with 17 points and Gabrielle Atkins with 14 points. Eagle’s leading scorer Megan LaCrosse was held to eight points as the Spartan defense made entry passes difficult all evening long for the Eagles.
The next Spartan basketball broadcast game that can be heard on WBDK 96.7FM will be next Tuesday as the Lady Spartans host the Seymour Thunder. Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call starting at 7:00 p.m. with the pregame show and tip-off at 7:15 p.m. Game audio can also be streamed on DoorCountyDailyNews.com with video on facebook book live.
