Eudora’s girls basketball team went home with some hardware from the Paola tournament.

EHS earned a 46-43 win over Wellsville Friday night to take third place at the event. It was an impressive response by the Cardinals, who fell to Piper in the semifinals for their first loss of the season.

The Cardinals jumped out to a 11-9 lead in the first quarter, but a 19-point outburst in the third period really propelled them to the narrow win. EHS hit four 3-pointers in the third quarter. Harper Schreiner led the team with 17 points, knocking down four 3-pointers in the process.

Eudora (3-1, No. 7 in Class 4A) will play host to Tonganoxie at 6 p.m. Thursday.
