Lady Red rolls

So much for drama in the girls game. Norton scored first, but Smith Center responded with 13 unanswered points and cruised to a 50-31 victory. The Lady Red are 5-1 on the year, with the lone loss last Saturday to a strong Washington County squad. The Bluejays are 3-3.

The Bluejays were hamstrung since one of their top low post players, Caitlyn Cox (Peggy’s daughter), was ill. She tried to give it a go, but just after halftime, she couldn’t go, and coach George Rossi smartly removed her after two minutes. Peggy told me Caitlyn will probably go home and not watch her brother Conor play much.

This is the final game for me before the long holiday layoff. I’m probably going to get rusty in the interim, but I am counting on a lot of action at Buffalo Wild Wings in KC.
