GOOSE LAKE — Forced to play catchup most the night, Northeast never could catch Cascade over the final three periods of a 59-47 loss in a River Valley Conference matchup of unbeaten opponents Friday.
The Cougars (6-0, 3-0 conference) opened the second quarter on a 10-2 run and never looked back.
"In the first half, I thought we were a little timid," Northeast coach Travis Eversmeyer said. "We weren't attacking them the way we are capable of, and we were in foul trouble. The second half, I loved our kids energy and aggressiveness. They didn't back down, and they proved to themselves that they can compete with this team."
