The Chesterton girls basketball team mounted a furious comeback, but it wasn’t enough.

The Trojans dropped their regular season finale 54-52 at Andrean on Friday night.

The 59ers built a 43-30 lead through three quarters before the Trojans used defensive pressure to fight back and have a three-pointer rim in and out at the horn for the win.

“A lot of teams would have folded, but these girls didn’t give up,” Chesterton Asst. Coach Tommy Berry said. “They dug down deep and did what we asked them to do defensively and gave themselves a chance to win.

“Our girls always play with heart.”

The game was tied at 26 at halftime before Andrean took control by outscoring the Trojans 17-4 in the third quarter.

Ashley Craycraft led the Trojans with 14 points and Marney Sisson added 12 points.

Rounding out the scoring were Molly Slatcoff (9 points), Nalani Malackowski (7 points), Haley Moore (7 points) and Evelyn Pabon (3 points).

Chesterton will open IHSAA Sectional play on Wednesday at 6 p.m. against Michigan City at Merrillville High School.
