The Plymouth Lady Pilgrim Basketball team played host to the Chesterton Lady Trojans Wednesday night at The Rock. The Trojans broke open a close game in the fourth quarter and defeated the Pilgrims 60-40.
The Pilgrims only trailed 40-36 entering the decisive final period. They also missed a couple of opportunities two minutes into the quarter that would make the game even closer. But a 15-2 outburst by Chesterton over the last five minutes of the game proved costly for the Lady Pilgrims.
Junior Halle Reichard lead the Pilgrim attack with 18 points including 5-9 from the three point line. Cassidy Holiday added 11 rebounds while Allie Andrews added five rebounds and six assists.
The loss moves the Pilgrims to 5-5 on the year. Next up the Warsaw Tigers come visiting to The Rock Saturday night for another NLC contest. JV tip-off is scheduled for 6:00.
The JV Pilgrims remained undefeated on the season knocking off Chesterton 26-19. The win moves their record to 9-0 on the year.
