“We were already down three players with injuries, and today one of our starters was out with the flu, leaving us only seven that dressed,” said Triad head coach Jeff Merklin. “To go up to Indian Lake and get a win shows what a really good group of girls we have this year.”

In a nip-and-tuck battle, Triad edged Indian Lake 15-13 in the first quarter and the Cardinals went on to lead by one point (23-22) at halftime.
