-A A +A

Karlee Bradley led all scorers with 20 points and Kassandra Tapia turned out another double-double Monday night for Robertson in a 55-41 win at Raton.

Bradley, who’d fouled out of the Lady Cardinals’ shorthanded loss at Santa Fe Indian School on Saturday,, provided offense to spare on Monday. Tapia recorded 12 points and 12 rebounds, Daniella Montoya had 16 points and Miranda Garcia grabbed eight boards for Robertson.

Considering West Las Vegas’ 49-43 loss to Pojoaque and Santa Fe Indian’s 42-39 defeat of St. Michael’s, also on Monday, there is a three-way tie for first place in the District 2-3A standings with Pojoaque, SFIS and WLV all 3-1. With a 2-2 district mark, the Lady Cardinals are just a game behind that trio. St. Mike’s is 1-3, and Raton is 0-4.

In district games Wednesday night, Robertson hosts West, Pojo hosts St. Mike’s, and SFIS hosts Raton to bring the 2-3A schedule to its halfway point.
