For Robertson’s Lady Cardinals, the turning point Wednesday night against visiting Taos came early.
The Tigers took advantage of a slow start by RHS and darted out to a 14-3 first-quarter lead. The Lady Cards never quite recovered, although they outscored their guests every quarter thereafter. Final score: Taos 50, Robertson 48.
“We gave up a lot of easy shots in that first quarter,” said RHS coach Aunna Bradley.
“Then we got into foul trouble. Daniella (Montoya) had to sit halfway through the third.”
