Basketball: Thunder girls cruise 75-44 against Cathedral

The Zimmerman Thunder took a big early lead and beat St. Cloud Cathedral 75-44 in a conference game Friday evening.

Senior guard Lexi Funaro sank 23 points to lead the Thunder (4-2 conference, 9-6 overall). Brooke Borchardt added 12, and Kaitlyn Mason and Amanda Rodriguez eight apiece.

“Our press hurt them early and we had a lot of turnovers and transition baskets,” said coach Lance Dalbey. “We were ahead 40-19 at halftime and we were able to play everyone in the second half. It was our Youth Night so that was nice.”

This was Zimmerman’s fifth game scoring in the 70’s. Their high is 76.
Moriah Schroeder led the Crusaders (2-5 conference, 4-11 overall) with 13 points.

The Thunder will play at Mora on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
