The Chesterton girls basketball team turned the ball over seven times in the first quarter, fell behind and never recovered in dropping a 51-42 Duneland Athletic Conference decision to Valparaiso on Friday night.

“We got behind 8-0 because we made turnovers that led directly to baskets,” Chesterton coach Jack Campbell said. “We turned the ball over a lot early.”

The Viking lead got to 20-8, as the Trojans turned the ball over 24 times on the night, during the second quarter before back-to-back three-pointers from Emma Schmidt and Nalani Malackowski led to a 7-0 run that cut the lead to 23-15 at the halftime break.

“We’re not good skip passers and when they trap, we were trying to throw it over the top instead of to the opening in the middle,” Campbell said. “It was a lot of fixable things, if we’ll work to fix them.”

The Vikings increased the lead to 38-28 after three quarters before Malackowski’s triple and a basket by Marney Sisson cut the lead to 40-33. The Trojans never got closer.

“We came back and cut the lead to give ourselves a chance,” Campbell said. “We just didn’t get all the way back.”

Sisson and Malackowski led the offense with 11 points each. Ashley Craycraft (7 points), Haley Moore (7 points) and Emma Schmidt (6 points) rounded out the scoring.

“Winning our first six was really good and surprised some people, including ourselves,” Campbell said. “Now we’ve lost five in a row, a couple by two points and one in overtime.”

The Trojans return to the court on Friday when they travel to Hanover Central. The JV game is scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. tipoff.
