The Cardinals’ woes continued last week with three more tough road losses.
St. Mary fell to the Pheasants 74-57 Tuesday, Jan. 14 in Parker.
“We played them tough for three quarters, and Mitch Brown had his best outing of the year,” said Pete Schmidt, Cardinals head coach.
St. Mary trailed by four heading into the final eight minutes of play, but a 25-13 fourth quarter scoring run by Parker finished the Cardinals off.
Ben Bunkers led the Cardinal offense with 14 points. Brown had a season high 13 points, while Jared Scholten add 11 for St. Mary. Other contributors for St. Mary were Ethan Schmidt with nine points, Christian Schnieders with three and Matt Farmer with two.
Bunkers was the leading rebounder with eight boards.
Friday’s trip to Arlington started promising for the Cardinals, who took a 10-8 lead with them into the second quarter. But Arlington shooters got hot from that point on and handed St. Mary a 74-37 loss.
Leading scorer for the Cardinals was Wes Heinrichy with eight points. Farmer chipped in seven points, and Mitchell Roemen added six. Scholten and Brown each scored five, and Schmidt and Nathan Klein had two points each.
The Cardinals battled Gayville-Volin Saturday afternoon in Colton during the Tri-Valley Classic. Although it was the Cardinals’ best showing of the week, the results were the same. St. Mary fell 64-54.
Scholten led St. Mary with 15 points. Schmidt scored 12, Brown 10, Farmer nine, Bunkers five and Schnieders three.
The Cardinals are 1-10 on the season.
