Gritty rival the Drummond Lumberjills didn’t make it easy on the South Shore Cardinals but, with South Shore’s hard-fought 33-30 win on Tuesday night at Drummond, the Cardinals moved to 12-0 on the year and hold a spot atop the Indianhead Conference with Hurley. Junior Lily Truchon, a returning all-conference player currently averaging nearly 27 points per game, isn’t completely surprised by the team’s success thus far — though there is room for progress, she said.

“I knew we had a strong team and figured we could get off to a great start,” Truchon said. “We are very unselfish players, move the ball around, and find quality shots. As a team we need to find more balance scoring, continue to improve on starting games faster. I prefer a fast-paced transition offense where we push the ball up the court because it creates more energy for our team.”
