Weiner placed three players in double digits to take a 15 point victory over the Lady Rebels Thursday night. Hannah Burgess paced the Lady Cardinals with 18 points while Mallory Jordan and Katie Armstrong pitched in 12 points apiece. Weiner stormed to a 10-1 lead before the Lady Rebels got untracked and rallied for a 16-14 first quarter edge. Weiner outscored Riverside 15-7 in the second period to take a 29-23 lead at the half. The Lady Cardinals put the game away in the third quarter, outscoring Riverside 23-8 to take a 52-31 advantage in the final frame. Riverside played shorthanded, as freshman Lauren Weaver sat out the game due to a knee injury suffered in Monday night's contest with Nettleton.

"We didn't show up tonight," said Lady Rebel coach Carrie Redman. "I didn't think we played very good defense. It really hurt when Meagan (Goza) got in foul trouble and had to sit out much of the game. We were already without Lauren (Weaver) because of her knee injury, but that's not an excuse. We just didn't play well at all. We didn't play Riverside basketball."

Megan Goza scored 18 points to lead Riverside, despite spending much of the night on the bench due to foul trouble, while senior guard Michelle Cobb added 16 points. Kyley Campbell scored six points, Becca Frayer netted five, while Ashley Calvert and Teylor Hill added two points apiece.
