The Plymouth Lady Pilgrims entertained a talented South Bend Washington squad Wednesday night and came away with their first loss of the year. The Panthers pulled away late and defeated the Pilgrims 64-48.
The Pilgrims lead at the end of one quarter 17-16, trailed at halftime 31-27, and was outscored 33-21 in the second half. The full court pressure took its toll on the Pilgrims as the Panthers caused numerous turnovers. The Pilgrims were playing short-handed as senior forward Hunter Stevens had to sit out with a concussion.
The Pilgrims were lead by Nicole Horvath with 19 points and six rebounds. Alli Andrews chipped in with 9 points and Haley Harrell had 8 points.
Next up for the Pilgrims will be their first NLC contest this year. The Pilgrims travel to Warsaw Saturday night to face the Tigers. NLC tip-off is set for 6:00.
