Upsala came into Kimball sporting a 12-0 record with one of the premier play- ers in the area, Aimee Pelzer, who earlier this sea- son scored her 1,000th point of her young career as a sophomore for the Cardinals. Kimball came into the contest looking for the upset, but Upsala showed why they had not lost this year, jumping out to an early lead on the Cubs. The Cardinals would lead by nine points, 37-28 at the half, and Kimball kept it close for a while in the second half, until Pelzer connected on four three-point shots in a three and a half minute span, pushing their lead to 19 points with just over 10 minutes to play.
