Girls roundup: Andover Central too much for Eisenhower
Coming off an emotional, one-point loss to rival Andover last week, the Andover Central girls bounced back quick enough for a 64-49 victory at Eisenhower on Tuesday night in an Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division II game.
Senior Skyler Snodgrass hit four of her team’s eight three-pointers on her way to a game-high 20 points.
The Jaguars, who trailed 17-15 after one quarter, took the lead on a Brooke Pedersen three in the first minute of the second quarter and never lost it. Eisenhower hit 15 of 16 free-throw attempts, but failed to muster much else offensively against Andover Central’s defense, which clogged the paint and forced the Tigers to settle for outside shots.
