Westview girls slip past Elkhart Memorial

Grace Hales knocked down 19 points and Brooke Yoder canned five, three-point shots for 15 markers as Westview rallied to beat Elkhart Memorial, 55-52 last Friday night in Elkhart.

The Lady Warriors, who hadn’t beaten Memorial in their last six tries, trailed 36-28 when the second half commenced. A 12-7 spurt in the third quarter cut the margin to three (43-40), while a 15-9 finishing kick earned Westview the win.

Maria McCoy produced 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Lady Warriors. Kristen Duff snagged 11 boards and Sidney Byrkett collected five assists and five steals.

Khadijah Moore poured in 30 points to pace Memorial. Alexis Miller chipped in 11 tallies.

The news was not as good for Westview Saturday night, as Goshen invaded Emma and escaped with a 43-40 victory over the Lady Warriors.

Deja Felder’s 21 points sparked the Lady Redskins, who used a 14-2 spurt in the second quarter to build a 26-16 halftime cushion. Jessica DeStefano had nine markers for 3-1 Goshen.

Hales again topped the Westview scoresheet with 18 points. McCoy followed with 14.

The loss left the Lady Warriors with a 2-1 record.
