Ali Everson led the scoring with 12 points. Jordyn Lilly and Sam Gaasch each scored eight points, Colleen Duley added six and Brooke Heller chipped in three points.

The Cardinals jumped out to a 14-4 lead in the first quarter and expanded the lead to 25-9 by halftime.

“Our girls just competed in every quarter. I’m happy with the way we played defensively.”

The Cardinals (15-7, 8-2) travel to La Reina on Saturday to determine second place in the league behind Santa Paula.
