The Varsity Girls Basketball Team (6-9, 3-4 GLC) falls to Elyria 52-51 in a back and forth battle that saw the Lady Redmen get off to a hot start outscoring the Pioneers 22-13 in the opening quarter. Turnovers plagued the Redmen in the second quarter which led to being outscored 12-2 and trailing 25-24 going into the half. The second half was a back and forth battle that every time the Redmen threatened to pull away the Pioneers would answer with a big 3 pointer of their own. In the end the Pioneers defense proved to be too much and a steal and a basket sealed the win for Elyria. Leading the way for the Redmen was Grace Jacobs with her first career double double with 12pts and 14rebs, Amaris Dejesus with 12pts, Taylor Rericha with 11pts, and Shannon Chamberlin with her second career double double with 10pts and 10rebs.
The Lady Redmen will be back in action this Saturday as they travel to take on the Elyria Catholic Panthers who are currently undefeated in the GLC. Varsity will tip at 2:00PM.
