MINDEN — A 27-point scoring effort by junior Shandra Farmer helped St. Cecilia win the Class C2-9 subdistrict championship over Sandy Creek 62-47 Thursday night.
St. Cecilia will play Centura for the district championship at 7 p.m. Feb. 27 in a game that will be played at Grand Island Central Catholic.
The Hawkettes (20-3) entered the game without starter Lucy Skoch, who missed the game because of illness. Skoch leads St. Cecilia with 7.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.
"I told my team before the game that Sandy Creek plays real hard and so it was one of those perfect storms where we were a little shorthanded and if they played a little harder than us it would keep them in the ball game," St. CeciliIa head coach Tim Farmer said.
In the first half, that proved to be the case.
