Mallory Heyer was 19 points short of a milestone, a number she was aware of, but didn't know exactly into Chaska's Jan. 13 meeting with St. Louis Park.

Teammate Kennedy Sanders may have let her know, or Heyer was just feeling it. Either way, the Hawks senior stepped back beyond the arc in transition, sinking a 3-pointer to reach 2,000 career points in the final minute of the first half.

Heyer netted a game-high 30 points as Chaska put on an offensive clinic in a 90-63 win over the Orioles.

Heyer dominated in the paint, as did Chaska as a team. Lily Niebuhr scored a career-high 11 points, while Sanders drove to the hoop often, finishing with 23 points. Seniors Kendall Karrmann and Zoe Cutler each had six points as well.

Heyer, with 2,011 career points, trails only Courtney (Boylan) Douglass for the program scoring record (2,148).

A St. Louis Park squad got a career-high 30 points from Selam Maher with Shantell Harden tallying 20.

Chaska (11-1) is 5-0 in the Metro West Conference.

Up next for the Hawks with Saturday's contest with Roseville Area postponed into February, is a road game at Bloomington Kennedy on Tuesday, Jan. 18.
