The Condon Blue Devils traveled to Moro Oregon tonight to take on the Huskies of Sherman County in a Big Sky league match.  The Huskies jumped out to an early lead fueled by the hot hand of senior Allie Marker (#3) who scored six points and Sophie Hulke (sophomore, #22) who added four more.  Marker continued to have the hot hand in the second frame adding nine more for a total of fifteen in the first half.  Marker’s hot hand cooled off in the third quarter when the Huskies only scored three total points.  Condon however, came out on fire.  Senior Megan Aamodt (#5) scored 14 of Condon’s 18 third quarter points.  Giving Condon the lead 30-24.

Aamodt added another nine in the fourth quarter for a total of 31.  Condon also saw contributions from Abby Colby (senior #30) who scored twice from behind the three-point line for a total of six points, Theresa Campbell (Sophomore, #20) who scored four from the floor and one from the line for a total of five, and Gracie Garthwaite who scored once from the free-throw line.

When the boys took to the floor the Huskies got out to a quick start and an early lead, but the Devils had it tied up at twelve before the end of the first quarter.  In the second quarter the Condon defense stepped up, holding the huskies to two points and scoring 17 of their own, led by senior Braden Carnine (#21) who put 7 points up in the second quarter.
