The second quarter started the same way, as Miller sored 15 points in a row and allowed just five in the entire quarter and led 34-10 at the break.
The Lady Cardinals pitched a shutout in the third quarter, outscoring Marionville 11-0 to lead 45-10 through three quarters and 52-15 by the final buzzer.
Freshman Claudia Hadlock led the way for the Lady Cardinals with 15 points, including three 3-pointers. Kaylee Helton added 12 points, while Payten Richardson also scored in double-figures with 10 points.
