Senior Haley Epperson scored a team-high 16 points as the Eudora girls opened its season with a come-from-behind, 37-33, win over Anderson County Thursday night at Eudora.

The Cardinals (1-0) established Epperson down low early in the first quarter, and Epperson scored eight of Eudora’s nine points in the opening frame. The Cardinals led 17-14 at the half but sloppy ball-handling led to Anderson County fastbreaks, and the Bulldogs led 24-23 at the end of three quarters.

Eudora trailed by four midway through the final period, but Eudora senior guard Rachel Pyle twice took the ball the length of the floor and drew fouls and hit four free throws to push Eudora back in front 30-28 late in the game.

Pyle and senior Mariah Webb both hit a pair of free throws in the final 30 seconds to seal the victory for Eudora. Next up for the Cardinals is the Cardinal Invitational Monday night. Eudora will play Turner at 8:30 p.m. at Eudora.
