Janesville Parker’s second game against Middleton this season followed a similar script as the first.

The Cardinals got out to a quick double-digit lead against the visiting Vikings on Tuesday and never looked back.

Middleton held Parker to just two points in the first 10 minutes on the way to a 58-23 Big Eight Conference victory that kept the Cardinals within striking distance of first-place Sun Prairie.

“After making a quick basket, we went over 10 minutes before we made another shot. That’s a tough way to start a game,” Parker coach Jennah Hartwig said. “The girls played hard, but the ball just wouldn’t go in the basket tonight.”

Middleton led 34-8 at halftime and improved to 12-5 overall and 11-2 in the Big Eight.

Senior Brooke Graesslin led the way for the Vikings (2-16, 2-12) with eight points, including a pair of 3-pointers.

Parker plays at Madison West on Friday night.
