Eagle edge Cadets

CLAYTON — Cascade ended its five-game winning streak with a thud Tuesday night.

The Cadets scored 13 points in the first half and shot 27 percent for the game as they fell 46-34 to visiting Zionsville.

“We played in some spurts tonight where we did okay,” Cascade coach Don Helmick said. “We are just not setting screens, we are not finishing our shots and teams are just doubling up on (Sydney) Stein and (Brandyce) Sallee and trying to make the other kids score. We had a lot of good looks they just didn’t fall.” Cascade senior Brandyce Sallee scored a game-high 18 points but more importantly became the Cadets’ all-time leading scorer in career history.

“It means a lot but I have to give it all to my teammates,” Sallee said. “Everybody helped me and gave me shots. It feels great but I don’t want to let it go to my head.”

After the score was tied at 4-4, Zionsville led the rest of the way. Seven different players scored as Elizabeth Schuler’s 14 points led the Eagles.

“We knew we really had to defend Sallee,” Zionsville coach Andy Maguire said. “We did a good job of just containing her and not letting her get out in the open. They also missed a lot of shots and that helped us too. I thought they had some good shots, they just didn’t go in.”

Sallee had nine of Cascade’s 13 first half points as the only one who was able to muster any offense for the Cadets.

“She stepped up in the first half. She kept us in the game,” Helmick said. “Tried to make some adjustments at halftime to get some other kids some looks and again we got some open looks and we couldn’t hit.”

Zionsville led 19-13 at halftime and stretched the lead to 36-19 at the end of three. Maguire said it was the Eagles’ best third quarter of the year as they made 7 of 12 shots and limited Cascade to 3 of 12 shooting and six turnovers in the third quarter.
