MINDEN — It didn't take long for the St. Cecilia girls basketball team to show why it is rated No. 3 in Class C-2.
The Hawkettes allowed Doniphan-Trumbull to make just three field goals in the first half, while STC's Morgan Nikkila nearly had a double-double in the first quarter.
St. Cecilia beat the Cardinals 57-30 in the Class C-2, Subdistrict 8 semifinals on Wednesday at Minden.
"I thought we played pretty good defense in the first half. We only gave up 10 points and just three baskets from the floor. It was a good job by our squad," said St. Cecilia coach Jahn Kile.
