CAMBRIDGE — Senior forward Gracie Korth scored a game-high 19 points for Cambridge in a 52-37 win over Waterloo in the Capitol South opener for both teams on Jan. 9.

Waterloo (7-3, 0-1 in conference) trailed 27-16 at halftime. The Pirates pulled with six, down 38-32, but drew no closer.

“Defensively, we didn’t play very well in the first half,” Waterloo girls basketball coach Gabe Haberkorn said. “We came out in the second half and played really well. We pulled within six and then we missed four straight free throws. It could have been a different basketball game. We did everything better in the second half. We just couldn’t convert.”

Freshman guard Julia Asik led Waterloo with 14 points. Freshman point guard Ava Jaehnke dished out six assists. Junior forward Brooke Mosher grabbed six rebounds. Freshman guard Sophia Schneider had three steals.
