SANTA FE — Closing out opponents in the fourth quarter is quickly becoming a habit for the Robertson Lady Cardinals, who used a 12-point swing in the final period Saturday to defeat Taos 60-50 in the third-place game of the Capital City Invitational’s girls’ bracket.
“We had a real strong fourth quarter,” said RHS coach Rick Armijo. “Defensively, we really closed it out.”
Robertson trailed by two as the third quarter ended, but as has been the case of late, the Lady Cards turned it up a notch in clutch time.
Jamie Allen led RHS with 22 points and Kendra Montoya had 16.
