The Chesterton girls scored the first eight points of Friday night’s game against Michigan City, but the Wolves battled back and took control in a 59-45 Duneland Athletic Conference victory.

Trojan junior Riley Taubert scored 10 of her career-high 17 points in the first quarter before the Wolves turned up their full-court pressure. That pressure led to a 7-0 run to start the second quarter and a 19-16 MC lead.

Chesterton turned the ball over on its first three possessions of the period to aid the run. Things continued that way as the Trojans hit on just 3-of-10 shots in the second quarter as Michigan City outscored them 22-10 for a 34-26 halftime lead.

Claire Holba finished with 16 points for the Trojans, while Lindsay Gorman had six points and Alyssa White scored five points. Reva Key tallied one point to round out the scoring.
