The Cardinal Huskies take down the Rootstown Rovers 69-53

Middlefield, OH - On Tuesday night the Huskies hosted the Rovers on a special night where Cardinal guard Jacob Bean would set the schools all time scoring record.

The Huskies were looking to hold their lead, and really stop clamp down on Rootstown defensively. Jacob Bean was able to put up six points in this quarter and his teammate Gall III was able to put up six of his own as they were able to maintain a 55-49 lead after three.
