Cadets sweep doublehheader with Tiger Cubs

CLAYTON — Cascade hosted a doubleheader last night against Greencastle that held conference implications for all of the teams.

Cascade coach Don Helmick said at the beginning of the season the Cadets always want to make last night’s game against Greencastle mean something with regards to conference play. Helmick and the Cadets got their wish, needing a win against the Tiger Cubs to stay within a game of West Central Conference leader Monrovia.

Despite trailing  by 12 at the break and with a strong second half of pay, the Cadets pulled out a 58-48 win.

“The last four games this has happened and the only difference between tonight and our last three games is we scored more than 11 points in the first half,” Helmick said. “We battled back today and whether we are back in that conference or not, Monrovia has to win. Tonight’s game was important for that aspect.”

Cascade led 14-12 after the first, but Greencastle pulled away in the second. The Tiger Cubs took a 34-22 halftime lead on the back of some hot shooting. Greencastle went 9 of 15 from the field, hitting an impressive 4 of 5 from behind the arc.

“We started off pretty good in the first quarter and then they started stroking the three,” Helmick said.

Down 39-26 in the opening moments of the third, Cascade hit three, 3-pointers —two by Roxanna Gaddis and one by Sydney Stein — and that pulled the Cadets within four midway through the third.

Cascade stepped up its defensive intensity in the third and while it helped offensively, the Cadets put the Tiger Cubs in the bonus with 1:58 left in the quarter.

That did not matter because the defensive pressure took its toll on the Tiger Cubs as Greencastle shot a miserable 4 of 22 in the second half.

After three quarters, Cascade trailed 43-38 but the momentum was clearly on the Cadets’ side.
