SALEM -- It was a contest between unbeatens in the Apollo Conference Tuesday evening as Effingham traveled to Salem.

The Hearts came out the winner 68-35 to remain on top of the standings with a perfect 7-0 record.

EHS made it evident from the start they were serious as the Hearts zipped out to a 23-3 opening quarter lead and never looked back.

"The girls really came out on fire tonight," said EHS Coach Jeff Schafer. "Building an early lead, then continued to play well all night. Everyone contributed in all kinds of ways. We did a great job of handling their pressure and attacking the basket. When they made a run at us in the second half, we answered with a 10-point run of our own

"It was a great effort all night long and that's what it takes to beat a team like Salem."

Josie Zerrusen scored 23 and Caitlin Kaufman tallied 17 to lead the Hearts in scoring. Eight other players scored in the contest. Kaufman and Zerrusen both hit three trifectas in the game.

The Hearts improve to 20-3 overall and will be back in action Thursday with another Apollo Conference game at Mount Zion.
