Your Lady Pioneers of Dock Mennonite Academy expected to start a winning streak before Christmas break, but late turnovers & mental miscues helped Plumstead Christian pull off a 39 to 38 victory.
As always, it was a back-and-forth battle between these two teams, with each gaining & losing leads in each quarter.
After being down six points to start the second half, Dock picked up its defense & outscored Plumstead 10 – 3 to take a slim (30 – 29) lead into the fourth & final quarter.
Both teams were tied late, but a clutch free-throw from Plumstead with seconds to go helped the home team prevail for the 1-point victory.
Dock’s Senior captain, Brooke Bozarth led all scorers with 21pts (2 of 4 from three, 6 of 10 from the free throw line).
Fellow Senior captain, Kate Strickland contributed 12 points & three steals.
Junior guard, Alyse Sobetsky had four points.
The Lady Pioneers headed into break on a 4 game losing streak, losing 3 of 4 games by 4 or less points.
