Cascade sweeps Monrovia

MONROVIA — Cascade traveled to West Central Conference rival Monrovia Friday night in a doubleheader girls’ and boys’ basketball match-up and came away with a sweep of the Bulldogs.

Cascade’s girls started slowly in the first half, something Cadets coach Don Helmick said was unusual, as his team has had a tougher time in the second half of games this season.

In a role reversal from the norm, Cascade utilized a strong second half to take a 53-43 victory over the hosts.

Cascade’s halftime adjustments paid off as the Cadets, who trailed 20-19 at the break, outscored Monrovia 21-12 in the third on 8 of 9 shooting.

“We talked about some mismatches we had (at halftime),” Helmick said. “We played harder. We didn’t play hard in the first half, our cuts were harder, our screens were harder.”

Cascade led 40-32 after the third and its free throw shooting was the difference in the contest as the Cadets converted 10 of 11 foul shots in the fourth. Mallorie Smith went a perfect 6 for 6 down the stretch, hitting the last two free throws with 40 seconds remaining.

Audra Smallwood finished with a game-high 11 points for the Cadets. Smith, Roxanna Gaddis and Hayden Stinnett all chipped in nine.

“Anytime we beat Monrovia it’s a nice win because there’s that rivalry between the two,” Helmick said. “We knew we had some mismatches and for once we were quicker than the team we were playing.”

Cascade’s boys pulled off something no other Cadets team had in six seasons against Monrovia Friday night, they tallied a win. The 2006-07 Cadets were the last squad to take down the Bulldogs, and coach Chris DuBois was proud of the effort.

“It’s been seven years, so anytime we can come in here and get a win, that’s great,” DuBois said. “It’s one thing we talked about in the locker room. I’m just happy for these guys, they worked hard all week and it paid off for us.”
