Concordia girls hold off Snider rally

Concordia's double-digit lead against Snider on Friday in girls basketball slipped off cruise control and became a game in the second half.

Fortunately for the Cadets, they still got a 49-43 road win.

Concordia got the advantage to 26-12 in the second quarter and settled for a 30-18 lead at halftime.

A 10-0 run late in the third and early in the fourth helped the Panthers chip away and eventually get to within 42-40 in the fourth.

"When they started cutting into the lead, we were playing their game," said De'Jour Young, who had three key layups in the fourth en route to a team-high 16 points. "We just had to get back to playing our basketball."

The win helped Concordia (5-0 SAC) continue its trek to the conference regular-season championship, the program's first since 2010.
