The Chesterton girls basketball team never trailed, but certainly didn’t pull away.

The Trojans scored the game’s first six points and held on for a 48-44 non-conference victory over Mishawaka on Saturday night.

“When you go back-to-back days, it’s not always the same as it was the day before,” Chesterton coach Jack Campbell said. “When you get fatigued a little bit, you start to wait for people to make a play for you instead of doing it yourself.”

The Trojans led 11-8 after one quarter of play, but held the visiting Cavemen to just two baskets in the second quarter.

On the night, Mishawaka hit on 12-of-41 shots (29 percent) from the field. Chesterton was 19-for-51 (37 percent).

“In the first half, we missed a lot of shots at the basket,” Campbell said. “When you play faster than you’re used to playing, that can happen.

The Trojans saw their lead shrink to 32-28 with 6:10 to play in the third quarter before Hailey Vale scored four straight points and the lead never got closer. Vale scored a game-high 15 points, while grabbing 12 rebounds and blocking seven shots.

“Hailey had a great night,” Campbell said. “She’s very capable of doing that on any given night. She’s a basket-protector. Last year, Hailey got in foul trouble a lot and she’s doing a much better job of realizing her height and getting her arms up instead of swatting at the ball.”

A 3-pointer from Mishawaka’s Aryana Shelton with 6:50 to go in the game would be the last basket for the Cavemen.

“It’s been a long time,” Campbell said of improving to 3-0 on the season.

Courtney Krol added 14 points (6 rebounds), while Sarah Dzierba (5 points), Shannon McCoy (4 points), Maddie Scott (3 points), Brittany Privett (3 points), Sydney Sisson (2 points) and Marney Sisson (2 points) rounded out the scoring.

Chesterton returns to the court on Tuesday when they travel to Bowman Academy with the JV game set for 5:30 p.m.
