Cardinals, Devils split games
By CLAUDE VINSON
It was a cold, wintry night when the Devils of Ashland swept into the Cardinals’ territory last Friday, looking to knock off their rivals in the neighboring county.
The Potts Camp girls came out a bit sluggish, however, they registered the first five points and then the visitors took over. They weren’t blistering the track; they were just steady. The Lady Devils were getting distributive scoring help and went to a 20-16 first quarter lead.
