Newton’s girls were blocked Tuesday just like on this shot by Michaela Jacobsen in an earlier game. The Cardinals fell 38-19 at Boone.

BOONE — Playing hard just didn’t pay off for Newton’s Cardinal girls Tuesday. In a non-conference road game, the Cardinals were held to their lowest scoring total of the season.

Boone’s Toreadors decked the Cardinals 38-19.

“We played extremely hard, it was just one of those nights that we couldn’t do a lot right,” said Brandon Sharp, NHS head coach. “We have to flip the page and let this game go, and just move on. Basketball is a long season, and there will always be some games that your team just can’t do anything.”

It was a low-scoring first half for both teams. Boone led Newton 14-8 at the break. The Toreadors went on a 10-4 run in the third to pull away. Newton  did score seven points in the final period but Boone added 14.

Senior Lizzie Stock was the top scorer of the night for the Cardinals with five points. Michaela Jacobsen, Sydney Jenkins and Macy Leonard each had three points.

Mariah McPartland scored 14 points for Boone.

The Cardinals, who averaged 41 points a game this season, fell to 3-11 overall. They host Norwalk Friday in Little Hawkeye Conference play.

Newton 4-4-4-7—19

Boone 8-6-10-14—38

Newton — Stock 5, Jacobsen 3, Jenkins 3, Leonard 3, Gray 2, Kalkhoff 1, Hutchinson 1, Moon 1.

Boone — McPartland 14, Sandvig 7, Slight 6, Biersner 6, Johnson 2, McKim 2, Overland 1.
