|The Brookfield Lady Bulldogs ended the unbeaten season of the Mercer Lady Cardinals on Saturday night, 60-53 in the championship game of the Milan Basketball Tournament.|
Brookfield was led by senior point guard Alesa Frey with 25 points, with shooting guard Samantha Gonzalez contributing 18 points.
Mercer's girls started the game slow, but a first-quarter rally kept the Lady Cardinals close, and an early fourth-quarter rally gave Mercer the lead. Poor shooting down the stretch cost the Lady Cardinals a shot at the win.
Lindsay Wyatt had 23 points, Nicole Kost 16, and Bailey Owens 11 for North Mercer, now 11-1 on the season.
Saturday night's game was broadcast on KTTN FM 92.3 and www.kttn.com, with Tom Johnson and Dennis Stephenson on the play-by-play.
North Mercer will play back-to-back road games this week (Tuesday at Pattonsburg and Wednesday at Southwest Livingston), before hosting Grundy R-5 on Friday night.
