RICHLAND CENTER - It's tough to win if you can't score, and Aquinas made it tough for Darlington to score for much of their WIAA Division 4 sectional semifinal game at Richland Center High School on Thursday night. The top-ranked and undefeated Lady Blugolds (25-0 overall) rolled to a 73-36 win over Darlington. The Blugolds scored the first nine points of the game to put the Redbirds (19-5) in catch-up mode just two minutes in, and then added runs of 11-0 and 17-0 later in the opening half to build up a 41-11 lead by the intermission.
