Bloomfield used a 25-21 advantage in the second half to hold on for a 45-42 victory over Union in a Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference high school girls basketball game at Dugger Saturday afternoon.

Union slipped to 1-5, 1-3 while Bloomfield improved to 3-2, 2-0 in the SWIAC.

"It was a grind it out game for us," said BHS coach Chris Hitchcock. "We had an eight-point lead late in the fourth quarter, but couldn't hit our foul shots (8 of 22).

"It could have been a 14 or 15-point game, but give credit to Union for making free throws and staying in it until the end. We will learn from this and get better."

The Lady Cards led 11-3 early in the second quarter, but Union closed the half on a 18-9 run to take a 21-20 at the intermission.

"Union got the to foul line 10 times in the second quarter and hit them all," Hitchcock said of the Bulldogs, who made 72 percent of their free throws (18 of 25).

Alicia Hasler led the Lady Cards with 13 points, including two 3-pointers. Elena Weddle, Meaghan Bond and Emily Bucher each scored 10 points.

"We had very good balance," said Hitchcock. "It was nice to see four girls in double figures.

"Our freshman are starting to come around."

Cali Hale had 12 points for Union.

There was no junior varsity game.
