Lady Broncos prevail
Russell won the girls game 44-35. Kyleigh Kasper, the Broncos’ 6-foot junior, scored 13 points in the first half and 19 overall. And, in what must be a first for her, she did not commit a foul.
The Broncos were up by nine early in the fourth quarter. Ellsworth managed to pull to within one with 4:23 to go on a jumper by Shannon Keith, but the Bearcats got no closer.
Now it’s the boys varsity game. Ellsworth defeated Russell 63-44 Dec. 13 in the Amos Morris-George Stephens Classic.
