PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Chargers pull away late at home

LIGONIER — For sheer adversity on a girls basketball team recently, look at West Noble.

The Chargers recently lost freshman forward Kenzie Cox for the season with a torn ACL, and this past week, a flu bug has been making its way through the team.

Despite all that, the Chargers keep finding ways to win.

Thursday night at  home, West Noble improved to 13-5 on the season with a 64-46 win over visiting Concord in a nonconference contest.

It’s the ninth victory in the last 10 games for the Chargers.

Thursday night, it took some time for the Chargers to find their stride: West Noble led just 13-10 at the first stop and 25-19 at intermission before pulling away late.

Leading just 34-30 midway through the third stanza, the Chargers pushed their advantage out to nine at 34-34 at the final stop, then opened the final period with a 14-2 run to put the game away.

West Noble coach Dale Marano said the win was a matter of his team battling through the adversity.

Several younger players, including sophomores Cara Groff, Taylor Fisher, Shawna Young and Lexi Shepherd. have stepped up nicely recently, Marano said.

As for Thursday night’s contest, Marano gave credit to the Minutemen for their tough play.

“Concord did some things early that put some pressure on us,” Marano said.

West Noble senior guard Kelsie Peterson, who led the Chargers with 21 points, said intensity in the second half made the difference.

“We just had to start doing what we do,” Peterson said. “We picked up our intensity in the second half, and we were able to create some turnovers.”

In addition to Peterson’s 21, the Chargers got 17 points from Haley Richardson.

Concord fell to 6-11. Coach Dan Ross said his team played well in spots, but is still a work in progress.

“We’re still working on maintaining our mental focus for four quarters,” Ross said. “We need to find a way to be the team that goes on those runs.”

Still, Ross was pleased with the leadership shown by seniors Shanice Matthews and Anna Heck.

The Minutemen got 13 points from MacKenzie Rutter and 10 from Jade Iavagnillio.

Concord was a 28-25 winner in the J.V. contest.

The J.V. Minutemen got eight points from Jenna Makin and West Noble got 10 from Becca Schermerhorn.

West Noble is idle until Tuesday night when the Chargers will travel to East Noble for a nonference contest.

Concord resumes NLC play at home against Warsaw Saturday night.
