Hackett Catholic topped Constantine 54-39 in Friday’s SAC Valley girls basketball game. Neither team had the edge after a 24-23 first half, but the Irish were able to pull away on the back end.
Krystina Kasson had the rare double double-double with 22 points and 20 rebounds for HCP. Bianca Cronen added 17 points. Haylie Wilson led the Falcons with 13 points.
“We struggled from the free throw line and we were very hesitant on offense and not as aggressive as I would like us to be defensively,” said Constantine coach Rachel Schlosser. “Hackett played a very well rounded game and they capitalized on our mistakes very well. We are capable of much more; we just need to have confidence in that.”
Hackett improves to 6-3 overall, tied for second in the SAC Valley at 3-1. HCP hosts Lawton Monday evening.
Constantine drops to 3-5 and 1-3 in SAC Valley play ahead of their home game Tuesday versus division leader Schoolcraft.
