On Thursday night, the Illini Central Cougars had their senior night. The Lady Toppers showed up and were shot down in the first half. The Cougars shot nearly 75% from the 3 point line. They just couldn’t miss. Seniors Erin Ritter and Bre Whittaker were making nearly everything. The Toppers just couldn’t run their own game if there was nothing to rebound. The final score was Cougars 55, Toppers 40. The Cougars were led by Erin Ritter with 23 points and Bre Whittaker with 16 points. The Lady Toppers were led by Skylar Hayes with 16 points and Alyssa Bridge with 12 points. There will be a rematch of this game on Monday when the two teams face off in regionals at Lewiston.
