Lady Red Birds hold on for 15th straight win

HARLINGEN — The Harlingen Lady Cardinals used a 19-3 fourth-quarter run to defeat crosstown rival Harlingen South 48-31 on Friday evening at the Lady Hawks gymnasium.

For the third time in four games, the Lady Cardinals survived another close game to extend their win streak to 15, while improving their record to 25-1 overall and 7-0 in District 32-6A.

“I feel that we started off a little bit slow tonight again, but once we kicked it into gear we started playing a lot better,” said Harlingen head coach Ashley Moncivaiz. “Nadia (Flores) played aggressive today, she had been a little off these past couple of games and with Addison (Dickey) being out, she stepped and attacked the basket.”
