By Will Mossing

Cedarville got its second victory this week to move to 8-5 on the season and 7-4 in conference play.

Led by Molly Mossing with 21 points, at the end of the first quarter the Indians trailed 12-5 and the Irish eventually pushed the lead to nine. However, the Indians really stepped on the gas in the second to only trail by two at the end of the half.

The Lady Indians pushed on the gas even harder in the second half, growing its lead to 10. The Irish tried to get back into the game, but they just couldn’t quite get there.

The Lady Indians take the court again on Saturday at Greeneview.
