The Brodhead Cardinals wanted to test themselves against the Rock Valley Conference elite.

They found out a lot about themselves in an intense 57-52 victory over a solid McFarland team making its season debut Thursday night. The victory gave the Cardinals a 7-0 record in their toughest test to date.

The Cardinals leaned heavily on the shoulders of Abbie Dix, who proved more than strong enough down the stretch to lead Brodhead to its biggest win of the season to date.

Dix, a sophomore, scored eight points in a critical second-half stretch to erase a three-point deficit and allow the Cardinals to take control of the game. She finished the game with 28 points and 15 rebounds.

“Abbie stepped up big-time for us,” Brodhead coach Brian Kammerer said. “We found her a bunch toward the end of the game, and she was able to finish at the basket. And Kiarra Moe, she just runs our offense so well. I can’t say enough about the job she does.

“McFarland is going to win a ton of games in the second half of the season, and there’s no doubt that we caught a break by being the first team to get them out of the gate.”

The first half was a seesaw affair that saw the game tied at 24 at halftime.

Along with Dix’s heroics down the stretch, Joie Steinmann came up big, hitting a 3-pointer from the left wing to put Brodhead up 53-48 with 3:40 to play. McFarland got no closer than three points the rest of the way.

The Cardinals will travel to Janesville Parker Saturday in the hopes of keeping their undefeated season alive.
