The Lady Cards put up 21 points in the first and third quarters to cruise to a 68-42 win over the Eagles.  The 1-0 start begins a very busy week for Langdon-Munich.  They played at Park River-Fordville-Lankin on Dec. 11, host Thompson on Dec. 12, then play in Munich at Benson County on Dec. 14.

In their game with North Border, the Lady Cards got rolling early, but the Eagles came back in the second quarter to make it a 35-26 game at halftime.  The third quarter is when Langdon-Munich pulled away, with contributions from several different players to give themselves a 56-34 lead.

The Cardinals had several players in four trouble in the contest, which led to 33 North Border free throw attempts, but fought through that by having the luxury of having a very deep team this season, led by seven seniors.

Madi Hart led the Cards with 18 points, while Jordan Worley added 16.  Krystal Ratzlaff had eight points and a team high 12 rebounds. Kylah Horsley led the Eagles with 13 points.
