The visiting Eagles led, 12-11, after a back-and-forth first quarter, but Chernow and her mates went to work in the second stanza, outscoring Norristown, 14-6, as part of a 14-2 run to open a double-digit lead, and the Cardinals never looked back.

Patti Fortescue and Lauren Fortescue combined for 27 points and Taijah James added 13 for the Eagles.

Up seven at the half, the Cardinals pushed their lead to 36-22 on a Barrett three with 5:59 left in the third quarter.
