The Brown City Green Devils found that out in the Harry Moore Classic championship game last Thursday night.

The Lady Green Devils, hoping to be a contender in the GTC East, fell to the Cardinals, 36-28, in that title match-up at Capac High School.

In a low scoring affair, Kingston led at the end of every quarter. The Cards were on top by three, 15-12, at the break, and by five, 21-16, through three quarters.

Lily Lyons of Kingston (6-2) helped seal the win in the fourth quarter, scoring nine of her teamhigh 13 points. She sank a triple and connected on all six free throw attempts in those final eight minutes.

Brown City, which fell to 5-2 on the season, was led by Kendal Muxlow’s 11 points and Becki Krause’s nine, including six in the final quarter. BC played without starting post player Breigha Donnelly in the second half because of an injury.

The Lady Cardinals also had eight points from Jillyan Dinsmore and six from Carly Smith.
